Estonian illustrator Eiko Ojala is known for his digital papercut illustrations, including his Vertical Landscapes piece widely shared on social media in 2013, and now he’s adding extra dimension to his work through GIFs.
His work looks like it's been cut from real paper, but it's been digitally created in Photoshop, incorporating elements from real paper photographed or scanned when creating difficult shadows.
Eiko studies forms of shapes and work closely with light and shadow, keeping illustrations minimal.
He's released a stunning range of new editorial illustrations worth admiring, some of which have GIF versions, visualising this year's current affair topics of the Rio Olympics, US elections, breast cancer and the Zika virus.
