A Wedding Gift for a Berlin/London Living Couple

At their wedding ceremony at Spiegelsaal, an old dance hall in Berlin, they celebrated with an old bath full of prosecco and beer! They also let off helium balloons with a self-address postcard attached in the hope that the people who find them send back the postcard with a message of congratulations. What a lovely German tradition!

Beautiful Gold Ketubah

Kari and Evan recently commissioned me to make their ketubah for them. Evan proposed in the exclusive Gramercy Park in NYC, so the gates and the trees were the inspiration for their papercut. All other motifs included in the design have special meaning to the couple. I loved making such and large and important piece.

"AFAR chose a destination at random and sent chef John Currence on 24 hours’ notice to a hot, sweet, sticky country where he followed a trail through the cuisine to the people who make it."

Papercutting Tiny Little Buildings...

I have papercut many buildings; peoples homes, famous buildings, wedding venues. They are not the easiest things to cut, with all their little windows! Here are some of them.

Spot Illustrations for AFAR Magazine

A spot illustration is small design that fills a gap on the page. They can be used to add interest to what would otherwise be a full page of copy. I made all the spots below for AFAR Magazine's Spin the Globe feature. 

A Very Early Piece - Wedding Portrait

This portrait was the second papercut I ever made. It was a gift for some friends of mine who were getting married. I remember sitting in the back garden and cutting it with a cheap, blunt scalpel. I didn't have a cutting mat either, I was just leaning on a piece of cardboard.

The Detox Myth - Psychologies Magazine

New illustration for Psychologies Magazine in the UK.

papercut-illustration-detox-tree-butterfly

 The idea behind the illustration is that 'detoxing' is a myth that we are being sold and our bodies, organs are perfectly capable of detoxing without pills and potions. However, we as consumers are buying into the fairytale idea that if we follow the detox path then we will find our happy ever after.
