It’s almost sad that I feel super on top of things posting my March papercraft roundup while April is still in the single digits. What can I say? I set my bar low and March was kind of a whirlwind for me. I turned 24 on the first, then I spent the next several weeks trying to work myself to death. Two jobs, mandatory overtime, very little sleep and 12-14 hour work days everyday. It wasn’t all nose to the grindstone, though. One of my jobs sent me to New York for two weeks to work at our Manhattan office and it was my first trip to the Big Apple. I had an amazing time and was super sad to come back to South Carolina. I can’t complain too much though. The weather here is beautiful (Nice to finally see you, Spring) and the papercraft roundup for today is pretty great. Here’s some papercraft illustrations that impressed me in the Month of March.

I just found Erin Maala’s work this month and I was blown away. That’s a partial lie, because I had seen one of her pieces, this epic Ron Swanson illustration, before on Tumblr. As is sometimes the case on Tumblr, it was uncredited and I didn’t know who had made it. So glad that I found out because I have been drooling over her portfolio and pinning practically everything she has ever done on my Pinterest papercraft board. Suffice it to say, I’m a fan.

I’m not sure what exactly is going on in this illustration by Aleksandra Davydenko, but I like it. Any ideas of what might be happening?

Alice Colombo is probably going to develop into one of my favorite papercraft artists as well. This is style is my favorite. Really clean lines, and blocked off color. It’s clean, but so whimsical and her color choice is great. Can’t wait to see more from her.
Thumbdemon has quite a few pieces similar to this in their portfolio. I think the shapes are really nice, the cuts are clean, and the light play is really interesting. I don’t know if they pack the same punch when they aren’t backlit, which makes the piece a little harder to show off, but I’m impressed nonetheless.

Matt Walford has a great style. It’s super simple and clean and looks like it would be easy to do. That’s just what he wants you to think.

How cute are these little portraits from giovana medeiros? I love this kind of papercraft, where the patterns and paper are all made by the artist as well. It just looks good. Plus, I have a soft spot for lumberjacks. What girl doesn’t, amirite?
