I needed to make a card for my cousin, so I decided try something a bit different. The figure (inspired by Zendaya in The Greatest Showman) is hanging in the card and can be wound up, so that it spins (see video below).

The design is quite simple, so I felt that adding… Continue reading Birthday Card

The calendar artworks need to be an interpretation of Pizza John, which is an inside joke and kind of hard to explain, if you don't watch Vlogbrothers videos, but here's a video… Continue reading Pizza John Artwork
I recently made cards for Fathers' Day. They are my original designs and handcut from paper. I made this first one for my dad, who loves penguins. The second card was for my grandfather. The illusion of the cubes isn't a completely original idea, but I do feel that I made it my own by… Continue reading Penguins and Patterned Cards
