I was bouncing around TED|Talks today looking for videos about storytelling and education when I came upon Beatrice Coron‘s video. Coron, originally from France, is an artist who specializes in paper-cuttings. As I watched her talk and saw the paper cuttings, I was impressed by the detail in her work as well as worlds that she is able to create. It’s really amazing. Check it out. It’s kind of long-ish but at around 10:31 you can see a speed-motion visual of how she puts her larger works together.
I think it would be fascinating to do a comic with a paper-cutting artist. I think her silhouette style lends itself well to the comics medium. Can you see it? It’s like the pop-up book all grown up and hip.
