The design for this steampunk squirrel is inspired by rush grass and the inner cogs and gears of a clock. Kukileaf designs are inspired by and created from a love of the natural world. Designs usually commence with photography particularly of plants. The shapes, patterns and textures captured are utilised in a variety of ways to create the final image. The image may go through multiple rounds of sketches and digital manipulation prior to final production. Despite the variety of end results produced the process is similar for all works.
