Japanese paper artist Nahoko Kojima creates awesome works of cut paper art using single sheets paper. Her incredibly delicate pieces depict animals, textures, and other natural phenomena. Some of them are exhibited encased between acrylic sheets, while others, like her Cloud Leopard [see top two images] are hung from wires for display as 3D pieces. To give you an idea of just how painstaking these pieces are, Nohoko spent five months cutting the Cloud Leopard.
“The artist is currently working on a new piece titled Byaku that will be unveiled at the Jerwood Space in London next month, an ambitious artwork of a life-sized swimming polar bear made using a single sheet of white Washi paper.

Ukiyo-E Heroes (Illustrations by Jed Henry)
Digging in the vast deep internet, I have recently found the artwork of this illustrator: Jed Henry, who teamed up with “Woodblock Printmaker” David Bull for the making of these parody illustrations of videogames called: “Ukiyo-E Heroes”.
The classical game characters including: Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, Starfox, Street Fighter, Pokémon, The Legend of Zelda, etc. Has been taken to the past with a medieval outfit, making a reference to the japanese culture in the past.
This is very awesome!
These small resin skulls are created by Brownister Hen and are entitled Waste. The name is derived from the process in creating these skulls as the waste is the left over resin from his paintings that is then poured into a mould, creating these one of a kind skulls. These skulls are then sanded and polished. If they turn out well, they are sold, if not, they are pulverized and reused in the painting process.
Folie à quatre.
