My name is John Ed De Vera and I’m a multidisciplinary designer, with a penchant for lettering, paper-cutting, and experimenting with different and new media. My philosophy of creativity has so far led to finding new ways to push and innovate my craft, unafraid of learning new things and twisting them in my own creative way.

Each element of these illustrations was drawn on a bond paper, transferred on special paper and individually cut by hand. The cutouts were then mounted on top of each other, depending on their layout and arrangement, similar to the process of making paper toles. The more protruded the elements were, the more shadows they would create, adding dimensionality to the whole image.

No-Face (Kaonashi) didn't have a neck or hair. This one is more haunting.

This Looks amazing! What kind of paper did you use? Also your exacto knife looks a little odd. It's tip is tilted to the side. Is it a special kind of knife or did you modify it?

I miss him too. Such a talented and influential artist who is completely private and low key in his own ways. RIP
