A little late to the party on Eiko Ojala's work, but better late than never. Eiko is an illustrator and graphic designer from Estonia who creates stunning minimalist designs that look as if they've been cut from paper. He does all of his illustrations digitally by hand using the likes of Photoshop – though sometimes he uses elements created from photographed or scanned paper.
In order to create these illusions, Eiko thoroughly studies the forms of shapes and works closely with light and shadow. His technique is so good at first I thought all these were paper crafts. He doesn't use 3D software to create his images, and only uses 'real' paper to make the really difficult parts. Check out some of my favorites below:
