You’ve heard about Mayhem, right? The adorable little girl who, with the help of her witty mom, makes paper dresses and posts them on Instagram? Please tell me you’ve heard about this. And if you have, then you KNOW how much I love it. The art teacher in me saw this as the best art project ever. The mom in me can’t wait till I get to make art with my little one.
In the meantime, I illustrated some of my favorite photos by Mayhem.
Here’s Mayhem in two of her paper dresses.
What makes me smile the most is that her mom says its really been about the process, as Mayhem discovers her creativity. “It’s not really about fashion,” she says. So this illustration was inspired by a photo of Mayhem making a paper dress, surrounded by color and possibility.
