Papercuts of Far Away Lands by Lucila Biscione

The longer you stare at Lucila Biscione‘s papercut illustrations, the more you will discover. Such magical creatures.. so much beautiful hidden details. Amazing!

Lucia Biscone is a Buenos Aires born artist who currently lives and works in Berlin. The works she creates are carefully cut by hand and often mixed with pencil and ink, which makes the characters come to life even more. It’s her own emotions that inspire her the most and challenges her to transform her art into a different reality. Every small detail of my life can be a story to draw.

You can find a beautiful selection of prints available on TOI Gallery.

Illustrated Ornaments by Carole Hénaff

I love everything about these beautiful, handcrafted ornanemts by artist Carole Hénaff. Such lovely colors and details! The’re part of a series of no less than 300 illustrated pieces, all created for a 3 feet high Cristmas tree at the Concord Museum in Boston in 2014 (in collaboration with Barefoot Books). Carole used various materials like clay, cardboard & papier-mâché and based her figures on her previously illustrated book The Arabian Nights. Her ornaments made the tree look magical. You can find some photos here!
