"We act wisely"
A university project. This was for the Lloyds TSB Art of Nurture competition 2011. The title to communicate was "We act wisely". They selected the image of the owl flying over the book, which won in the regional finals in Edinburgh and went on to be exhibited in London's V&A, where it won the national finals for "Peoples Choice Award" 2011.

GRIMM'S STORY CARDS
Pop-up, light up cards with booklet of each fairy tale.
As a young girl, Nicky loved to make secret pockets, windows & doors inside her artworks. These story-cards are a prototype of something she hopes to take further in the future. The card was designed to be laser cut and then pieced together to form an intricate pop up card. Inside the card is a pocket which holds a small booklet with a traditional Grimm's fairytale. It also hides a secret button below a part of the other paper cut illustrations, which lights up the 3D artwork with a sinister red glow. Each booklet that holds the fairytale, is printed as the original tale was told, before they were sugar coated for sensitive ears. Hence the title for this series "The Grim Truth About..." to prelude the title of each tale.
