I recently participated in a collage contest, and at times felt like I was all thumbs while trying to cut out tiny slivers of paper at just the right size. In her piece Citypass Jerusalem
, Iris Kost
has mastered the technique of embracing the non-perfection that comes with the process of cut-out paper shapes, all the while making it look whimsical, simple, and adorable. Her characters all have such expression and uniqueness, and I love the bright color palette. Iris makes the experience of riding the train into a lovely, pleasant one, one where you just might meet someone as interesting and creative as Iris.
