Dublin-based papercraft artist Julianna Szabo has created a wonderful series that cleverly uses paper and shadows to create the illusion of three-dimensional animals.
Titled ‘Paper Loops’, the series features illustrations of animals like the zebra, giraffe, and frog, each carefully constructed with half-loops of paper glued to a flat surface.
These half-loops cast a shadow on the flat surface, forming an illusion of a rounded body that extends behind the surface of the paper. This has allowed her to “add another dimension to a sheet of paper”, much like her other papercraft works.
Check out some of her ‘Paper Loops’ below, and head here for the full series.
