Fun Link Friday: Newspaper Animal Sculptures by Chie Hitotsuyama

Who says the age of newspapers is over? Artist Chie Hitotsuyama has certainly found a good use for them! She creates masterful, incredibly realistic sculptures of animals and people using primarily rolled up newspapers. The effect of carefully manipulating sections of the paper into dense, textured results is positively mesmerizing, mimicking everything from lizard scales to monkey fur.

Hitotsuyama has a variety of photographs of her work on her website, which also provide a sense of how very large many of these sculptures can get (some taking up an entire room!). Take some time out of your Friday and browse her incredible work, both on her site and a number of articles that feature other works not displayed there with some additional photos of her process.

Happy weekend!
