i’m jealous of myriam dion



A stack of newspapers, a very sharp x-acto blade, and Canadian artist Myriam Dion. I think all I can muster is “my goodness”… ok, I’m going back to spend my weekend staring at the perfect, detailed, poetic cuts that she has made to this pile of yesterday’s headlines. Sigh.

{…thanks to MissPixels for sending this beautiful work my way}

    Incredible! Looks like embroidery. Myriam must have a ton of patience. Great find.
