Jim Doran is a self-taught artist based out of Baltimore, Maryland that creates miniature paper worlds in his spare time.

Brittney Lee needs no introduction, we have featured her outstanding work here a couple of times. You may recall her piece for The Little Mermaid, one of my favorite movies as a kid, and her It’s a Small World Tribute. Brittney’s new piece entitled “It’s time to Light the Lights” pays tribute to Jim Henson, making it hold a bit of nostalgia for most. Who doesn’t know The Muppets… and if you don’t there is treat below just for you.
David Benmussa is a graphic designer based out of Paris, France. He has a wide range of dabbling, but one that particularly caught me of course was his latest piece.

As you remember in the past we debuted Brittney Lee on our blog with her brilliant piece that homaged The Little Mermaid, one of my fave movies. I can barely keep up with the unsurpassed work she has created since we saw her here last, but you can catch a glimpse of latest work entitled “Aloha! Bienvenue! Welcome!” that was featured in the “It’s A Small World Exhibition” at Gallery Nucleus.

A Friend of Mine is a design studio based out of Melbourne, Australia where they strive to create each project they take on with creatively crafted passion. They have made this remarkable graphic campaign around the concept of ‘process’ for the umbrella event and 5 sub events which involves the technique of layering paper. The identity itself was translated in both a 3 dimensional and 2 dimensional environment alongside more traditional print applications. They chose to make a series of multi dimensional hand-cut dioramas were created for each field, depicting the depth of talent and process behind each event.
Nicole Aptekar just recently had a series open at the Satellite66 gallery entitled “New / Exploration / Paper” in San Francisco’s SOMA district.

The exhibition runs from August 12th – September 24th so if your in the San Francisco area be sure to check it out.
