‘Paper Child’

Paper Child is where a character (usually in an anime/manga style) is drawn (and cut out of paper or card) to appear to be interacting with a real person. Usually the person is lifting, pulling or prodding the character, so it is drawn to look as if they are reacting to this.

This cat is drawn to look as if it is being lifted up by the tail, so that when the person photographs themself holding it by the tail it’s expression and pose make sense.

I think these are cute and creative as they allow the characters to come to life by not just having them on a page but having them interact with real people.
