Out of all the approach­es to image mak­ing, cut paper illus­tra­tion is my favorite. The process is often a tedious one, but the results are awe-inspir­ing. Paper can quick­ly trans­form from a 2D com­po­si­tion into 3D, and these types of illus­tra­tions have the look of sculp­tures with ele­ments that cast shad­ows. This visu­al depth is the best part of about paper illus­tra­tion. In addi­tion, it gives you a dis­tinct feel­ing that the piece is made by hand, and that the metic­u­lous snips of the scis­sors or the slice of an X-Acto knife were all part of the jour­ney into cre­at­ing the final result.

Here’s nature-inspired paper illustration that showcases the power of scissors and glue. Get in tune with nature!
