More amazing paper cut outs

I know I have done several posts about paper cut outs, but I find it amazing that such an inexpensive item like paper can create such beautiful works of art.  See everybody thinks art needs to be expensive supplies, but it really can be some of the simplest, most overlooked items that can create magic.

The British artis Helen Musselwhite has created that magic with her very simple, yet complex works of paper art.  They are layered pieces of cut up paper that have been strategically placed to create these amazing scenes.

What do you think?  I tried to get them as big as I could so that you could see all of the little details that she has created with paper.  Do you think this is something you could do?  What are some of the details that you see she adds to give the piece depth and interest.  Is there a scene you would like to see if she could recreate?  What scene or story would you try to recreate?

Okay, I usually can come up with a more clever title to my posts, but this one is mind blowing.  At least to me, maybe you will think differently.  I tried to find the artist, but I was blocked from digging any further so we will just have to admire the beauty of these pieces without knowing anything else about them.

I do know that they are cut paper art.  But what I am fascinated by is the amount of details that someone got out of paper.  I am curious about how many sheets of paper are here.  Is it just a couple of large sheets that are all connected or is it separate pieces each cut out and then applied together?
What do you think?  Can you figure out how they were constructed?  Do you have any guesses as to how big the pieces are?  I love a good art mystery, but I am interested in what you think of these pieces and how do you think they were made?

Sharpie and a Car?

Okay guys this is a question for you.  How many of you would let a girl take a sharpie to your brand new car??  Anyone?

Well this guy let his wife doodle with a sharpie all over his Nissan Skyline GTR.

So if she could doodle as well as this woman would you let your girl do this?  I am curious what all of you think?  Is it really cool??  Do you love it or hate it?  What do you love or hate about it?  Is this a project that you would be willing to do to your car?
