French Artist Creates Miniature Papercut Anime Characters

Paper cutouts of cartoon characters have evolved into a meme known as Paper Child with a community on deviantART by the name of #paperchildREVOLUTION dedicated to the craft. The basic idea behind the ongoing, user-submitted project is to take photos of creatively composed paper characters against a real-life backdrop.

Some of the best in this particular dA group are submitted by French artist Laura, better known as Lowra. Lowra’s Paper Child contributions offer an entertaining blend of whimsy and real-life interaction. While common themes in the meme involve a human hand lifting their crafted characters up by their shirts, Lowra takes things a step further by adding real props.

The clever artist dangles her little paper pal over a pot of boiling water, engages in a sword/knife fight, and even offers a few treats for the cast of paper crafts to interact with.
