These beautiful dreamlike landscapes cut out of paper are created by French designer Maud Vantours. With big clients like Yves Saint Laurent and Lancome we are sure to see more wonderful multicoloured sculptures from Maud. The 3D paper sculptures are part of one of her series she has created, but you must check out all of her work, which include an accessory line of iphone cases and handbags.

We love your work Maud!

The day John Hughes died my entire childhood flashed before my eyes. It sounds dramatic, I know, but movies are dramatic. And maybe I’m a little dramatic. And maybe I know just too many lines from John Hughes movies by heart, and I couldn’t get them out of my head.

Growing up in the 1980s, a childhood filled with Hughes’s genius, I was shocked and confused when there weren’t movie marathons after he passed away. I expected to turn on some cable network and see nothing but Molly Ringwald and John Candy and Anthony Michael Hall. I’m still a bit pissed about it.

As a little girl, his movies made me want to be a teenager - so I could go to prom and take driver’s ed and get skip school and get detention and meet a boy like Ferris Bueller. I still want to meet a boy like Ferris Bueller.

Graphic Designer, Art Director, Comic Book Artist and Writer - all in a days work for Steve Morris. And you thought tweeting was hard....

 
FF#:Steve, when did you become a "full grown" artist?

SM:I don’t remember a time when I didn’t consider myself a “full grown” artist, it’s an inescapable state of being for me.

#FF:What made you jump on the independent artist wagon?

SM:Like most artists, I have ideas and stories I want to relate, and the only way to do this is to strike out on one’s own path and terms.However, I think being independent is less of a choice and more of a necessity for artists (excluding the industrial/graphic arts), as there aren’t many opportunities to be a “dependent” one.

#FF:Where do all of your "characters" come from?

SM:A...

It's Valentine's Day! Love it or hate it, it's here, so we're going to embrace it this year and besides showing our love for all of our team (including you) here at Cargoh, we wanted to show some extra love for Indigo.

Over the weekend we launched our Artist Series. We are really proud of how it turned out and wanted to say thanks to our boys down at Catalog Creative for pulling it together so nicely! And a huge thanks to Indigo for letting us peek into her world for a few minutes.

Being an artist and running a business, although not necessarily seen this way, are very similar. They say that the hardest part is coming up with a good idea. The 2nd hardest part is finding the money. In business it is extremely common to tap every resource you have to try and scrape together that initial bit of money. Credit cards, selling your mom's jewelry, bank loans, friends and family, partners, VC......anything. Most of the time, the money comes in based on either a business plan, a passionate presentation, or a working model. Where am I going with this?
 
Basically what I am getting at is the same money exists for artists. Yes, there are government grants, and educational grants. But to me it seems like some big companies are really getting on board with spreading creativity these days. I know through our friends at Holiday Matinee that Ford is...
