Random from Yoko art

Yoko is the hottest, yet coolest, anime babe ever! I'm always looking for great new Yoko pieces to paper-cut

I started kirie after a trip to a kirie museum in Shibukawa, Japan and decided this was going to be my hobby. I started out doing Elfquest pictures because they're my favorite comics and they inspired me to work harder. Then I started practicing on anything that caught my fancy from google.com, and that's where I am now. I can do just about any picture/photo/art with a high level of detail. My next goal is to do larger scale work, maybe as large as poster size. I'd love to do requests if you would like to see something done in this form.
Kirie is literally "cutting picture" in Japanese. Using a picture, black paper, a cutting board, and a pen knife, I carefully cut out all non-black shapes on the picture. The resulting continuous-line black paper is then glued to a sheet of clean white paper. The effect is more dramatic when you look at a piece with your own eyes instead of through a computer screen, as there is a 3-D effect when looking at it for real.
I have a folder set aside in my gallery that shows the kirie process

Haven't posted much in a while.  I'm in the middle of my Christmas project.  I've actually taken a break to do another Yoko piece.  Just waiting on permission before I can post it.  I've had some issues with my printer, so that's led to some unfortunate delays.  Trying to talk myself into spending the extra money and just getting a sweet printer that doesn't have problems every couple months.  I've got some ideas for some projects I'd like to take on once my Christmas one is done.  So even though I'm not posting lately, there'll likely be a flood of work towards the end of the year.

Thanks to everyone

I really appreciate faves, watchers, and llamas! I never have time to get back to everyone, so hopefully you'll see this and I can thank you this way. It's means a lot to me!

Hello, long time no see!
How have you been, my friend? And how is your big paper-cutting project coming along? 

Thanks for dropping by and adding my work to your list of favourites again. It's always a special honour to come from someone who does the same craft. So... thanks a million!

- C.J.

A couple other projects got added to the heap, so it's slow-going.  I'm planning to use up most of the summer catching up

Hey, that sounds like a plan to me. :)
I've been avoiding my big project and picked up a few smaller ones on the way (well, you're looking at one of them now.) I am hoping to get to that "big one" eventually this year, though. 

Either way, nice to see you and hope to see your new stuff soon!

Thanks!  Need to work a little harder this year on getting work out.  I've been a little absorbed in basketball so I'm just not making the time.  Hope to get back into it all soon!

Hey, nothing wrong with that. Exercise is good for you! 
But yes, whenever possible, I'd love to see you getting back to it all. I'm among the last handful of monochrome papercutters left in this place, it's getting lonely!
