The happy blog
By Canadian paper artist, Calvin Nicholls
I wonder how this man dreamed up something like this?
I guess he was wondering one day what to do with hisspare time, picked up a piece of paper, and started cutting.
He made something pretty and then decided I can make other things just as pretty or even more beautiful. So he practiced and practiced and got better and better, and in time discovered he really had a talent that not many other people have.
Take the time to look and see what I mean.
There is nothing simple or ordinary about his paper art. Where we would simply use a piece of paper and a pair of scissors, Calvin uses everything you could possibly think of to carve,cut and rip perfect details onto his creations.
The motifs are all wildlife, and that must be one of the hardest categories of things to make with paper since there are sometimes impossible details on animals. These details are amazing! I can't even fathom the time it must have taken to create these masterpieces of art.
