Paper Cut: Mapping Out New Work

I’ve never been much of a sketcher of ideas, but lately this seems to work well when it comes to working on new paper cut designs in my sketchbook. But instead of a pencil I work with an exacto blade.

I really want to work with recycled/reclaimed paper and since I recently acquired a pile of large topographic maps, this is the paper I hope to work with going forward with the paper cuts. I really like the combination of materials and design, and the paper the map is printed upon is fairly decent to work with.

      Thanks Robin. I haven’t done much work with maps previous to this, so I’m looking forward to how things will proceed.

      Thank you. I’m beginning work on more map paper cuts this weekend, and will be sharing more soon.
