Artist Karen O'Leary, whose lovely paper-cut maps I've blogged before, has some new cities out today. Above: San Francisco.
From up here they look like little ants.
Get this woman a Laser Cutter! She’s earned it.
I can see my street corner!
“Hand-cut paper map of San Francisco”
People living in the Outer Sunset, Visticon Valley, Twin Peaks, West Portal, Bayview, Merced Heights, and Park Merced may disagree with that statement.
I was gonna say the same thing, and then I remembered no one lives in those places.
Nice work! (but there’s bits missing! From the wharf to 21st St, and from Embarcadero to 26th Ave, is not San Francisco. Where’s Bernal, or Outer Sunset?)
This is pretty great. I am also a bay area cut paper artist. I guess the fog leaves us feeling obsessive.
If you like hand cut paper. Check out my website
Nevermind Outer Sunset, Visticon Valley, Twin Peaks, West Portal, Bayview, Merced Heights, Bernal and Park Merced, where oh where are that person’s head and feet!? oh the humanity!
This woman must have forearms made of vulcanized steel. The former me who used to cut frames and matting with x-acto knives is shuddering in pain.
clearly created by a “downtownist”
ok… so now make one out of a leaf!
