Learn the art of papercut with this new ebook

We love paper art at Creative Bloq, and we especially love impressive papercut work, particularly when it straddles the boundaries between normal and 3D art.

If you've ever fancied trying it for yourself but you've never really known where to start, you're in luck. Jonathan Chapman, also known as Mr Yen, has been honing his papercut skills for the past five years and has distilled his wisdom into 'Teach Yourself to Papercut', an ebook that'll tell you everything you need to know about creating your own intricate and beautiful papercut art. We caught up with Jonathan for a quick chat about the secrets of paper cutting.

Jim McCauley

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
