Cut and Paste-tastic – Leaf through Jenny Grigg's paper illustrations

Posted by Catherine Gaffney,

Take a peek at these striking illustrations from Australian illustrator and graphic designer Jenny Grigg. Exploiting the layering and sculptural capabilities of paper, she succeeds in producing work that is bold, silhouetted, and rather beautiful. Check out in particular her process work for a portrait of the main character in Peter Carey’s novel, My Life as a Fake – Chubb, an unhappy, second-rate poet, is a cubist-style portrait compiled of discarded sheets of paper. Nice.
