From High Fashion to 'Frankenweenie': An Interview with Mandy Smith, Paper Sculptor Artist and sculptor Mandy Smith uses paper as her preferred medium, one which is surprisingly diverse and allows her to build the most incredibly detailed and high-rising mansions, movie sets, and musical instruments, all stemming from a single dimension. Smith has worked with the art department behind Tim Burton's Frankenweenie, and other clients include Coca-Cola, Toyota, and Purex. When we first found Mandy's work, it was because of a series of hilariously uncomfortable sandpaper goods: a bikini, toilet paper roll, a playground slide, and other things that wouldn't feel great. We spoke with Mandy about her work, and why she's so drawn to paper.
'Limitations are Very Liberating': An Interview with Sam Kalda, Narrative Illustrator Sam Kalda is a Brooklyn-based illustrator, graphic designer, and cat whiskers-collector with a portfolio we loved for its lovely combinations of narrative storytelling and flat design. Clients include papers and journals like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Popular Mechanics, The Washington Post, and others, but Sam's portfolio retains a sense of playfulness and features many characters from literary classics, just for fun. We interviewed Sam recently about how Bob Ross got him on the path to illustration, and what is perhaps my favorite ever ongoing series, Men and Cats.

We spoke with the creators of Lexigrams, Veronika Hecko Wu and Albert Wu, to learn more about this creative endeavor.
