Last week we featured a selection of exquisite works of cut paper art by a Japanese Kirie artist named Akira Nagaya. Today we learned that Nagaya also creates awesome cut-out depictions of beloved Anime, manga, cartoon and comic book characters using individual Post-it notes.
Visit Akira Nagaya’s Facebook page to view more of his playful pop culture Post-it cut-outs.

While I was travelling I did quite a bit of sketching and one of my favourites was this picture of Ossip Zadkine’s absorbing sculpture in the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. Really the drawing was just an excuse to sit and look at the sculpture, because it’s just amazing!
Having neglected humans so far in my papercutting, I decided to start abstract and give this picture of the statue a go. The shapes and shading made it particularly difficult so I didn’t attempt to do the design mirror image, which is why the papercut faces the opposite direction.
