Makin’ that paper

kyoko okubo 06 Makin that paper

Kyoko Okubo crafts the cutest things out of paper. The post on Booooooom! features some of her work (where I got the thumbnails below), but you can view more of her work here and still more cuteness here. I have no idea how big these pieces actually are, but I’m assuming that they’re rather small. The pieces featured on Mobilia Gallery show much more detail than the ones I have included, and are adorable. They’re called Narrative Paper Sculptures, and they’re friggin’ awesome.

I had a bit of trouble finding out about the artist, and finally stumbled upon a site that shed slightly more light on Okubo. We still don’t know much about the lady, but we know that she’s cool and she crafts a bitchin’ mini paper lady and paper animals.

I love the above creation of the small lady in her undies with a bird perched on her bum. I have a similar picture of myself posing in exactly the same way, with a crow standing on my behind, except that’s just a much sexier version, and it wouldn’t be fair to compare. I have many assets that this little papier mâché lady does not. Like cellulite, for example.

    I am impressed, I have to say. Very rarely do I encounter a blog thats both informative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your thoughts is outstanding; the matter is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about. I am really happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    An amazing blogpost, I just passed this onto a student who was doing a little research on that. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I discovered it for him…. :).. So let me reword that: Thnkx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for taking the time to talk about this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more info? It is highly helpful for me. Big thumb up for this post!

    Can somebody please tell me HOW she did these dolls? Papier mache or what? Every website I go to goes on about how amazingly cute they find her dolls, but nobody seems to be curious how she did it?!
