Ross Callaghan Turns Simple Scissors & Knives Into Weapons Of Mass Creativity

The Godfather

Student/ artist Ross Callaghan has launched a Kickstarter project that caught my attention based off one piece…Puny God.  I’m a big fan of the Hulk.  His massive proportions, his unbridled rage and of course, his tattered purple pants make him one of my favorite superheroes.


Marilyn MonroeRoss’s project is titled Papercut Portraits and as the name suggests, it involves paper, scissors, knives and…. well… portraits.  To start the project Ross has taken 5 of his most favorite characters in pop culture history, Hulk, Superman, Brando as The Godfather, Marylin Monroe and Frodo Baggins and made some wonderful papercut portraits of each.

Man Of Steel

Frodo BagginsBesides being really good portraits at very reasonable prices I REALLY like the fact that he is willing to do CUSTOM pieces as well.  The door is wide open according to Ross, actors, personal portraits, political figures, cartoon characters, you name it, he will create it.  Here is an example and it just happens to be the first papercut he ever made.
