I've seen this resurface on both instagram, tumblr, and other areas of the internet and it's making me a tad bit uncomfortable. (I'm probably NOT going to be happy if I find out you've posted this without giving me full credit~!)

--

So it's probably not a secret that I'm an Adam young fan. And for the people that don't know who Adam Young is- he's the one guy behind Owl City.

Adam Young has over fifteen music projects, the main one is Owl City, of course- but before Owl City he worked on a project called Sky Sailing. Back in 2010 he released Sky Sailing tracks to the public for the first time in the album "An Airplane Carried Me To Bed."

I've been listening to that album a lot recently, and I was captivated by the album's artwork, so I decided to make a 3-D poster replica. This is the result.

It took a piece of posterboard, some watercolors, a sharpie, a reference picture, and fifty paper airplanes.

I hope you like it.

This is the first time I've done a project this big by myself and ended up happy with the result. o_o; It has over 350 notes on Tumblr, so that's kind of... wow. 8|

I had no idea it would get this sort of reaction. I posted it to Tumblr and it has over 100 notifications now. 0_o I'm really really happy that people like it, though! I worked really hard on it! ;D

Does this remind anyone else of the animation short, Paper Airplanes that played before Wreck it Ralph. You did a fantastic job of betraying the cover album. :D

When I was making it, I felt like the man who kept folding all the airplanes. XD I must have made fifty planes. And thank you so much! :)

This is the actual album cover XD ([link])

I LOVE the watercolor, I have never been that good at it so I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. And the paper airplanes were REALLY fun but also a major pain in the butt, because I had to fold like fifty of them. XD

I think I will, I'm going to start crafting a lot more because it's SO much fun. :D

Thank Youu <3 <3
