It's cold and wet and I don't want to be outside. So I'm inside working on more paper cuts. Here are a few of my designs. Click on the image to enlarge.

I love the unexpected detail...the crab on the mermaid's tail and the grass over the bee! That is some precise cutting Patrick!

That's what keeps it interesting for me, Theresa. I love how my mind has to work to understand what I'm doing BEFORE I start cutting.

Love these - really charming character and they've made me smile - after coming in from a day in the cold!

Hi Patrick-
was led to your website+blog via the artbiz blog, I love your work & especially the "little monk" sculpture. and these paper cut illustrations are so beautiful.

You are obviously much more productive on rainy days than I am. I love all three but I'm especially taken with your mermaid. It would make a great book club design.
