Friday Round Up: Paper Shapers I’ve Seen Lately and Liked

If you couldn’t guess, today’s round up focuses on paper, and those who use it to create cool things. Some are illustrative and others are sculptural, but all of the artists and illustrators featured here wield the Exacto knife like a pro.

Happy weekend, ya’ll!

I featured the work of Jared Andrew Schorr many years ago, when I first started this blog. I’ve been following him on Twitter and keeping up with his work ever since. Jared works with cut paper, using a lot of flat colors and a little bit of texture.  The emphasis is on shape design and shadow.  Because he layers his papers, wonderful drop shadows appear behind the different elements of his work giving it a slight sculptural effect.

Jared’s work is very smiley, and recently he’s taken on clients in the educational sphere. He’s also illustrated a lot of cartoon characters, including Adventure Time, one of my favorites!
