Papier Mache Otto

By Ann Martin @allthingspaper
I know, I know... my Fab Friday posts are supposedly only one picture, but first I must show you what prompted today's feature.
Meet Otto, the sweet pup my son and his girlfriend adopted several months ago. We're all smitten with him because he's so friendly and well-mannered, not to mention cute.

And now... meet another Otto! (yep, that's his name too)
Papier Mache Otto
Made of papier mache by Janneke Neele in Belgium, this Otto has quite the shiny coat of many colors. I love his life-like pose and earnest expression... just like the live Otto when he's looking for a treat. It's hard to resist those pleading eyes!
Janna studied drawing and painting in art school, and worked mainly with acrylics. Ready for a change, she now enjoys the challenge of creating colorful, three-dimensional papier mache sculptures. She and her husband work as a team... he welds the wire frames that Janna wraps with paper strips.
Visit Janna's website (you may want to use Google Translator as the site is in Dutch) to see lots more of her wonderfully modern and whimsical characters, as well as lovely paintings.
