Hey there, paper crafters! It’s me, Matt, back to blog about some more super-geeky awesomeness. As you may or may not know already, I’m kind of a comic book nerd. (You’re shocked, right?!)
Have any of you heard of the artist Roy Lichtenstein? He was an amazing artist who took comic book art cells and made large scale paintings with ironic comments that often parodied pop art or culture in a tongue-in-cheek manner. Here’s an example of his work.
Obviously, I’m a fan of comic books. I even took the time to decorate the wall of my office with a chalk version of a comic-book fan favorite—Spiderman.
So I thought I’d share a little project and download with you. Yep, I made a card! First I cut out some pictures from one of my comic books. Then I simply trimmed and adhered the images to my card base and added a fun sentiment.
Being the designer I am, I illustrated the sentiment myself, Roy Lichtenstein style. I’d love to share it with you, but first, take a look at the card I made!
You too can use the pages of a comic book to create SUPER paper-crafted cards for your loved ones. GO (no, FLY! ) to the nearest comic book store, buy a few comic books, and flip through them until you find a page or some panels that represent the card you want to make. (I got the one used here on Free Comic Book Day.)
To use this sentiment, right click and copy this image and paste, or save it as a jpeg file.
Have fun everyone, and stay geeky!
