Margaret Scrinkl has been posting some very intricate paper art projects. I am a fan of 3D and photo manipulation, but you cannot beat the look and feel of a real handcrafted product. The textures, the light and most importantly how organic it feels. Computer generated images tend to be too perfect, they lack the subtle flaws that something made with real materials will show, like the different way the border of the paper looks after bing cut with scissors, or simple the fact that the curves are not perfectly uniform.
Already one week after starting the new year, did you start hustling on your resolutions yet? Just to spark a little bit more inspiration, we are sharing the work of Cristian Marianciuc. He is an origami enthusiast where for nearly 3 years has been making an origami crane daily. It started as a 365 days project but he just didn't stop after a year! You should definitely check out his Instagram for more of his work!
Papercraft is one of those things that amaze me. Some projects might take hundreds of hours to be completed, but the outcome might be just amazing. That's the case of this paper town made for an advertisement for Historically Bank Constanta. Crafted by Sophia Antidze, Abesalom Kavelashvili and Van Sage, it was a 336 hours long project and they built over 370 objects. This is just amazing! For more pictures on this project, please visit the project page at Behance!

Last week we had some awesome suggestions for posts. From icon design to specific artists... but one of the best ideas was Papercraft! I searched for some pieces and ended up finding amazing designs.
Papercraft has become very popular in the last couple of years. Usually it's small little cute figures and what not, but this 3D artist has taken it one....no, more like 100 steps further. Check out his amazing papercraft 3D self-portrait. For more information check out http://testroete.com/ Hi, I'm Eric Testroete.
