I mentioned Olly Moss' amazing art show "Paper Cuts" a few weeks ago on FB, and if you haven't seen it yet, you're going to love scrolling through (there's got to be over a hundred) and seeing how many iconic 80s characters, cartoons, and various super heroes' silhouettes you recognize.
Like traditional silhouettes, those are all cut paper, (ergo the show name) which is what makes the tiny details so amazing.
Also amazing is Meghan Stratman's art project "Nerd Love: 52 weeks of paper fandom," which is nothing short of spectacular when you realize her pieces are also made with paper.
Here are a few of my favorites (so far):
Seriously - just look at that detail. Amazing.
The snowflakes in her Edward Scissorhands tribute pop off the page like fireworks - gorgeous!
Scroll through Lee's blog, and you'll find that every piece is more breathtaking than the last:
Lee's combination of painting and paper cuttings is simply magical - but her 2D art isn't half bad, either:
I love the shades of Mary Blair here - so wonderfully retro! And unlike the 3D pieces, you can buy this one at Lee's Etsy store.
Oh, and I know it's not geeky, but this one never fails to makes me smile:
And how great would it be in 3D? Eh? (Brittney? Eh? Hint hint?)
So, guys, which is your favorite? Any other great and geeky paper artists I should know about?
