Head in the clouds

Another popular phrase 'Head in the Clouds' turned into a paper cut design. I decided to have a bit of fun with this one, using the clouds to form the hair and a moustache, but decided not to add any text.
All elements cut by hand using paper and scissors.

This illustration was created in Illustrator using the 3D tools, extrude and revolve. A personal project to create some depth and scale with simple shapes and colours.

Time Flies

A paper cut design based on the phrase 'Time Flies'. I decided to use a different technique with this design, using only white card and by creating shadows with foam spacers between the layers. This creates a subtle but effective result.

Fix It

A paper cut design based around the phrase 'fix it' using a spanner or wrench fixing the world. All elements cut by hand from coloured and metallic silver papers.

Frog in my throat

My latest little creation using Adobe Ideas on the iPhone. A neat little illustration program that's well worth the £6 price tag.

The word 'pound' has many meanings in the English language and this design portrays the main four: pound in money, to pound as in hit, pound in weight and pound as in dog pound. This is a paper cut design using only paper and scissors.

Let it Slide

This design is based on the phrase 'Let it Slide' hence the use of a Helter Skelter as the main image. All elements hand cut from coloured paper. This one was a bit tricky to cut and assemble due to the multiple layers but I think the final result works OK.

A new design created using paper shapes cut with scissors. Although this method is quite fiddly and time consuming, you get a nice hand made feel which I think adds to the effect. This design is based on the fact that guns are for killing and need to be taken seriously.

A paper cut design based on the great British weather! I chose not to use any digital methods to create this design - all elements drawn and cutout by hand, and the end result simply photographed.
