Playful Pet Portraits Produced with Cardboard Cutouts

These hilarious photographs feature an adorable little hamster peeking his head through all kinds of imaginative cardboard cutouts. The artist behind Myths & Fabrications, Jenny, is an illustrator and crafter who says she likes to create “all manner of mixed media and needle-felted three dimensional oddities.” Recently, her daughter decided she wanted to dress up their pet hamster, David Bowie, in dolly clothes.

Knowing that actually getting clothes on a squirmy little rodent would be near impossible, the crafty mom concocted these clever little cardboard creations and let David Bowie explore them as he pleased. As the adorable pink nose and tiny little eyes peek through the cutouts, the hamster is quickly transformed into a flying cat, a colorful clown, a mermaid, and even a princess.

To anyone worried about the pet's safety, Myths & Fabrications stresses the fact that the hamster was very carefully cared for throughout the creative process. The paints are all non-toxic, and David Bowie was allowed to play and to explore, peeking his head through the holes of his own accord, and quickly taken out of the box when he got bored.
