An Post, the Irish postal service, approached me to create six stamp illustrations done in paper-craft dioramas that depicted Irish Christmas scenes. The stamps were sold in booklets, which I also designed and illustrated.
The process involved cutting out scenes from coloured paper. They were then constructed into layered, theatrical set-like dioramas, with back, middle, and foreground elements consisting of characters and props, which I carefully lit and photographed in my studio.
