Talented Artist Makes Disney Characters From Layers Of Paper
Jackie Huang is a talented paper artist from Los Angeles. We contacted the
author to ask some questions about her work: “The medium I use is something most
people encounter as an everyday object – paper. I try to turn that ordinary
object into something extraordinary. Something that asks the viewer to stop, to
take a second look, and to think outside the box.
I first got into paper art through pop-ups. At school, I had been struggling
with my drawing and painting skills for a while. I wanted rules and yes/no
answers for things, but art doesn’t usually work that way. But when I found
paper as a medium, everything clicked. I’ve always had a very good sense for 3D
spatial reasoning so I found working with paper to be very natural.
Now, I use a variety of techniques to create my work – layering, quilling, paper
engineering, etc. I don’t limit myself to a particular technique so I can
explore and experiment.
I seek inspiration from lots of places – animation, fashion, stationery,
packaging, and children’s books. The biggest inspiration though has been events
from my own life. It may sound cheesy, but I think that’s when I create my best
work. It’s when I can tell the story that no one else can tell”.

Artist Sketch The Places He Goes Every Day So That He Can Remember Them
I’m a graphic designer/illustrator from Latvia, with history in Norway and
currently living in Prague. This is my one year project which I started in July,
2015. Every day there is one sketch in different places. The sketch is created
where I was, and posted on Instagram, never missed a day and usually using small
sketchbook with liquid pen, pencils and watercolours.
I know I am not the first one who draws the places in sketchbooks, but I like to
remember the places with my own perspective and take a moment for the certain
perspective. So I would like to share my daily challenge with you. The year
project still going and currently I am on 194 day.
