First Cut Is The Deepest

Michigan-based artist Thomas Allen creates exceptional lively and entertaining illustrations using figures that he cuts and folds from secondhand and castaway books.

His newest work is more lighthearted, less provocative, but still very clever. Check-out his website to learn more .
