He uses a simple layering technique similar to the most recent dioramas from Matthew Pleva, hand cutting each of the colored papers after they have been sketched and gluing them to kapaline boards (foam boards, for those of you who are not familiar) to add depth, and then mounting within a square frame to add the final touches. His inspiration can be found through some of his favorite illustrators and even through sci-fi and fantasy movies. Be sure to check out his shop.

“I love to do illustrations for kids, so my daughter can enjoy the fruits of my works, and there is nothing better in the world when she appreciates and plays games with the works you design” – Vaclav Bicha
