Paper artist and graphic designer Yulia Brodskaya first began to experiment with various ways to illustrate using paper about six years ago. In the time since she’s become a master at quilling and other sculptural techniques involving paper, landing high-profile jobs working on paper projects for fashion designer Issey Miyake, Godiva chocolates, and even Paramount films.

In her own time, Brodskaya often returns to an exploration of aging and older people, inspired in part due to fear of her own mortality, but also in an attempt to portray aging people with dignity by rendering them in brilliant color, or by showcasing their interests. There’s also an added bonus: quilled paper is an excellent medium for creating wrinkles.

You can see much more over on her website, and Brodskaya’s work appears in the new book Paper Cut: An Exploration Into the Contemporary World of Papercraft Art and Illustration.

Arist and illustrator Karina Eibatova (previously) just partnered with LUX Cards to create this phenomenal set of playing cards inspired by her bird and feather drawings. The cards will be printed by the United States Playing Card Company on official Bicycle card stock. The deck is called AVES (Latin and Spanish for birds) and is quickly gaining steam over on, yes of course, Kickstarter. Couldn’t back this quick enough.

After two years of preparation and meticulous carving, “Overlook” is an upcoming woodcut print from the minds and hands of Paul Roden and Valerie Lueth of Pittsburgh-based Tugboat Printshop (previously). The duo make some of the most stunning limited edition woodcut prints around, having churned out a number of new pieces since we last checked in including Woodcut Valley, Community, and Desert Island. The final color print of Overlook (above is just the woodblock used for printing) will be 28″ x 46″ and is available for pre-order.

Mineral Admiration is a new series of watercolor paintings by Vienna-based artist and illustrator Karina Eibatova. The juxtaposition of using a water-based medium to create images of stone is in line with Eibatova’s desire to only create images from nature, an exploration that has lead to dozens of publications in magazines, newspapers, and journals around the world. These new paintings are available as prints in her online shop.

Artist Elsa Mora recently updated her portfolio with a number of beautiful paper sculptures created for both private clients and exhibition. All of Mora’s pieces are created with little more than acid-free paper and glue which is carefully cut, layered, and assembled to create 2D and 3D images. Several of the pieces are currently at the Racine Art Museum in Wisconsin for a show titled Once Upon A Time: Fairy Tales, Fantasy, and Contemporary Art that runs through August 31. You can see more on her website and over on Facebook. (via Brown Paper Bag)

Paper artist Maude White cuts meticulous depictions of birds, people, leaves and other compositions embedded with hidden scenes and stories. Each piece can involve thousands of minute cuts giving the works an extreme feel of density and texture. White is currently based in Buffalo and will have work on view next month at the Western New York Book Arts Collaborative as part of a show titled Birds I’ve Been. You can see more of her work in her portfolio and over on Instagram.

Milan-based designer Andrea Minini (previously) recently completed a new series of animals illustrated with textured moiré patterns, creating an unusual intersection between natural forms and mathematics. It’s curious to see how the patterns give each illustration a great sense of motion, curving naturally with the shape of each animal. If you’re interested, many of these are available as prints over in the My Modern Shop. (via Neatorama)
