This fun set of paper books was created by Japanese graphic designer and architect Yusuke Oono who conceived the idea as a clever way to illustrate scenes from individual stories in three dimensions. The 40-panel books are laser cut from paper and assembled into a booklet that can be viewed page by page or fanned out as a sort of layered diorama of silhouettes. You can see dozens of additional views from each book right here. (via Enoqi)

I tend to have weird dreams too when sleeping on a plane, but nothing comes close to those of Jaume Montserrat. While on a flight home the Barcelona based illustrator dreamt he was on a Noah’s Ark-like island and “there was only one animal from each specimen. All of them were empty, asexual and immortal. They didn’t need to hunt, nor were they scared of being hunted – so there was a perfect symbiosis.” And thus came the inspiration for his series “Emptyland,” a surreal representation of unraveling animals often depicted as being intertwined with each other. At first glance the drawings are a little creepy, but upon closer observation there’s actually something very peaceful about them. (via ghost in the machine and iGNANT)

Hummingbird, 2010

Korean paper artist Cheong-ah Hwang who is currently based in Columbus, Ohio creates delicate paper sculptures that blur the line between 2D and 3D art using dimensional illusion. The paper is cut and layered to give the final object depth and form, but remains essentially a flat piece. You can see more of her new work including other paper illustrations over on Flickr.

Artist Tobias Gutmann Travels 25,000 Miles With the Face o mat, A Portable Analog Portrait Booth portaits illustration humor

Since late last year Swiss artist Tobias Gutmann has been traveling the world with his portable analog portrait booth dubbed the Face-o-mat. Customers take a seat in front of a small window, much like a photobooth, and then adjust some levers to determine how their portrait will look: color or black and white, natural or facelift, classical or avant-garde. Then, for a small fee, Gutmann works his illustration magic and creates a strange abstract portrait in less than three minutes.

In the last few months the Face-o-mat traveled some 25,000 miles (40,514km) with stops in Stockholm, Milan, Dar es Salaam, Tokyo and London. Gutmann often repaints the facade of the machine to match the local language, and recently rebuilt the entire machine using MDF (Medium-density fibreboard) to make it more durable. You can follow further Face-o-mat adventures on Facebook and you can see some of the over 700 poraits Gutmann has illustrated over on Tumblr. (via Think Faest!)

I’m really enjoying this series of stretched and interlinked classic cars by UK-based illustrator Chris Labrooy. Labrooy graduated from the RCA with an MA in design products and has since been using various 3D tools to explore the intersection of typography, architecture, product design and visual art. His has exhibited at the design museum in London and his work appears in numerous illustration and design publications. You can see more in his portfolio and over on Debut Art.
