These are two more of the recent works combining paper cut and drawing. The two previously shared pieces are circles, but I also wanted to play around with other shapes like these triangles.
As with the others, these are about 5″ x 5″ on 8.5″ x 11″ black card stock using silver gel pen. The work is created freehand from start to finish. I decided to cover the entire surface of the triangle with the doodle of circles and it looks pretty intense (and shiny!)
These will also be part of the show I’m having in the fall at Kafka. I still have plenty of work to do but things are getting closer to the end.

After the recent paper cut commissioned letter C, and feedback from my newsletter subscribers, I’ve decided to offer paper cut letters made to order from my Etsy shop.
These are samples I’ve created for the listing using my first initial and a big B for Boris. The letters can be custom made in any colour combination of 8.5″ x 11″ card stock, from eye-blasting colours to black & white.
Visit the made to order paper cut letters listing in my Etsy shop for more details.

I’ve chosen Microcosm as the working title for this series, and will see if it changes as things develop further. This is actually the third of four pieces I’ve created over the last week. It’s the second circle while the remaining two I haven’t shared on the blog are triangle shapes.
I’m enamored of the metallic gel pens I use to draw with. Partially it’s the colours and how they catch the light (ooh shiny!), but I also love the feel as they glide over the surface of the paper.
The circle is about 4.5″ in diameter on a piece of 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock. I’m enjoying the creation of these small quick pieces while I take a break from the larger, more energy consuming ones.
