I figured I would make today’s post a little early because I plan on sleeping in tomorrow. It’s been a long weekend, but a good one. I went to the graduation of some dear friends at Winthrop University, got sun burnt, and primed a campaign dresser. It was a nice one but the weekends are never long enough to finish everything I’d like. My laundry, for example. That awesome paper kitchen above is by Lobulo Design out of Barcelona and his portfolio is bursting at the seams with colorful, intricate paper illustrations (some NSFW though — read “paper vajayjay”). If you’ve got the privacy, it’s a real treat for the eyes.

Siang Ching of Pattern Matters makes these colorful calendars for each month. The website is awesome and features a .gif for every month on the homepage that is just beautiful. I am in awe of people who can master paper mechanics. I did my senior thesis in college on paper (big surprise) pop-up mechanics and I could feel my brain trying to explode sometimes trying to work out the mechanics of certain pop-up maneuvers.

Helen Friel is a genius, pure and simple. She works out of London and her work is clean and beautiful. These pieces are based off of the art of “hepatomancy” which is the practice of attempting to predict the future by reading the entrails of animals. Kinda gross, but doesn’t it look great translated into paper?
