Figure 8 is Double 4

Hello, sorry it's been a while, I've been better about updating my flickr.I'm working on shipping a bunch of copies of COF to people/places that would be interested. I would love some suggestions to add to the list if you can think of any! I've also been keeping busy with my internship (more to show soon):

While in High School I got this mysterious paper-cut silhouette at Goodwill and have cherished it ever since. Recently I went to Duluth and came across this darling paper-cut silhouette at an antique store (right). I had to have it so I could officially start a collection, I imagine one day having a wall full of them!
(TRIVA: This small scissors and ribbon mark was the inspiration for the tattoo on my neck. Originally I wanted the squiggle/ribbon/'S' as well, but the person giving me the tat was having enough trouble getting the scissors to look like scissors, so I decided not to do the squiggle because it would be too messy.)
I came across this magical blog about papercutting, and am now dying to make some of my own! For now I've only begun sketching.

In closing, please enjoy these two videos. The first is the Schoolhouse Rock song "Figure Eight", and the second is Elliott Smith's version, both are haunting.
