In the Make recently published a great interview with paper artist Jill Sylvia (previously) including a number of tantalizing process photos of her signature cut ledger paper sculptures. If you’re not familiar, In the Make is a weekly collaborative interview and photo series between photographer Klea McKenna and writer Nikki Grattan. From their about page:

Through studio visits with artists and designers, we hope to explore each artist’s
space, process, influences, and the behind-the-scenes elements that are often unseen in the finished work. We look to highlight the ways in which each artist’s personal aesthetic pervades their environment and reveals their perspective. We are also interested in the daily realities of making creative work and how each artist sustains their practice.

Their impressive list of interviews includes studio chats with Jesse Schlesinger, Christina Empedocles (previously), and Josephine Taylor. Well worth your time.

The folks over at CollabCubed spotted these great custom lights by Christian DuCharme installed at the Lafayette Espresso Bar and Market in New York. The first is the 300 Cups Lamp made from, yes, 300 paper coffee cups while the others are made from plastic spoons and coffee filters. A really striking use of materials. See more photos here.

Just discovered these fun collages and illustrations by Moscow-based artist Philipp Igumnov. He strikes an intriguing balance in his work with many pieces being laugh-out-loud ridiculous while others are filled with a sort of sad, dreamlike melancholy. Whatever he’s doing, it works, and I found myself sad when I reached the end of his gallery so quickly.

In his latest work One Piece at a Time, Brooklyn artist Jonathan Brand has constructed every single part of a 1969 Mustang coupe at 1:1 scale out of nothing but paper. Using digital drawings as a source, he printed the blueprints with a large-format inkjet printer. The components were then meticulously cut out and folded into a wide range of objects including spark plugs, nuts and bolts, a radiator, and even the individual tire treads. The final work will not be assembled into an entire vehicle, but rather displayed as loose miniature sculptures. You can see many more photos of the wheels and motor on his website, but for the full effect you’ll need to stop by Hosfelt Gallery in New York, September 20-October 29. (via ex-chamber)

Update: Thanks to David Joy who just sent me a link shot by his brother Chris and friend Zach Keeting of Gorky’s Granddaughter as they interview Jonathan about this project. Lots of fantastic close-up shots of more car components can be seen. Also how amazing is this video? Three guys, drinking beers, talking about 1969 Mustangs and papercraft. I don’t think life gets better than that.
