I am a big fan of Post-It Notes, mostly because I can stick them to my monitor to help me remember to do all the crap I need to do. That’s all I really think of using them for, but artist Akira Nagaya is a bit more creative. Nagaya makes some incredible art of out individual Post-It Notes and a sharp blade.
The Post-It cutout images include Ultraman, Pikachu, Ultraman, and Totoro among others. My favorite out of all of these is the one of Gigantor, with his fist pumping up in the air. The detail in that art is incredible – I wonder how long it took to cut that out.
The only part of the cutout art not separated from the original Post-It is a flap to allow the cutout to stand up. Throw in some backlighting and this art is beautiful indeed.
