DIY FOR MUMS

Artist at work

NYC-night-blueCheck out this YouTube video featuring Julie from Famille Summerbelle cutting out, by hand, her New York map. I saw it on the Famille Summerbelle website and could not resist writing about it. The whole thing took 20 hours to make, but don’t worry, the video only lasts 2 minutes. It is seriously insane to watch  — I personally would have sliced off the tip of my finger in the first minute….

I really like watching someone work with pen, paper and scaple instead of a computer, just like in the good old days.

I also have to say that I have a real soft spot for Julie’s work, especially her cut-out maps. They are lovely and full of  little details which are acute observations of the cities on the maps.
