I changed my mind so many times while planning this picture that I forgot why I wanted to do this in the first place.
I started by planning to make it as an actual collage, with pieces of paper and cardboard cut and paste together, then went for doing a digital collage, and finally drawn it with the special inking style that is becoming quite usual for me, but this time focusing on colours, textures and blendings instead of the inking itself.
I did remember I wanted to do something Mika styled and that it was a perfect setting to put Candy into, but the exact reason why I wanted to do this, eh I forgot. xD

This is just amazing. That inking style is phenomenal looking. And the collage idea is very interesting. Basically, I really like this >w<

You must make a collage.
One day, I'll have enough scraps of newspapers and wrapping paper to make a proper one! x3

It is a well known fact among those who know it well that Italians must carefully ration their scrap paper supplies due to a crackdown by the Chinese mafia. (Boy was THAT an interesting tale...) Your average working-class Italian may need several years to build up a small box of carefully guarded paper. Many an Italian child will be able to recall evenings spent around the 'scatola di carta' with their parents avidly reading their favorite newspaper articles from a yellowed and well-read sheet of newsprint, or maybe a magazine page.

Such is the demand for paper, that it is said an man's worth is not governed by how much money he has or the size of his house, but rather how many sears catalogs he has amassed. Indeed, during the infamous 1985 burst of inflation paper temporarily became more valuable than money, leading to many Italians cashing in their life saving to be pulped for newsletters.

Though the advent of the internet has eased pressure on paper supplies, many older Italians still cling vigorously to their habits, and wisely is it said 'A piece of paper blown into an Italian house by the wind may only be dragged out again by two horses.'
