I continue to be amazed at the variety of beautiful - unusual - amazing - startling - creative emails sent to me.  It’s fun to share.

Here is what someone else had to say about this artist:

Paper artist Calvin Nicholls.
There is nothing simple or ordinary about his paper art. Where we would simply use a piece of paper and a pair of scissors, Calvin uses everything you could possibly think of to carve, cut and rip perfect details onto his creations.

The motifs are all wildlife, and that must be one of the hardest categories of things to make with paper since there are sometimes impossible details on animals. These details are amazing, and I can't even fathom the time it must have taken to create these masterpieces of art.

I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top. 


A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor's office. "Is it true," she wanted to know, "that the medication you prescribed has to be taken for the rest of my life?" "Yes, I'm afraid so," the doctor told her. There was a moment of silence before the senior lady replied, "I'm wondering, then, just how serious is my condition because this prescription is marked 'NO REFILLS'."


  1. I think the lion and the birds in flight are my favorites! It would be something to see these in person - I'm sure the 3-dimensional quality makes them even more amazing.

  2. Wow. As for the joke, the woman clearly still has her wit about her.

  3. I agree with Laura B. It would be fun to see these in person! Just look at the prickles on that hedgehog--or is it a porcupine? Nevermind. Amazing.
