Mr Yen - Paper Cutting

Jonathan Chapman, aka Mr Yen [edit: site no longer available], is a young graphic designer in England who found himself so drawn to the art of paper cutting that he taught himself and has spent years passionately honing his skill.

Falling Feathers

Last weekend I enjoyed paging through his stylish, new catalogue. The carefully curated collection - personalized wedding designs, silhouettes, wall decor, and stationery items - are so beautifully photographed. I hope you'll have time for a browse.

Jonathan and I are comrades on Twitter where I'm constantly impressed by the kind-spirited nature of his tweets. I asked him where the name Mr Yen originated... "I've been heavily influenced and inspired by Japanese style, culture and design - which is where the "Yen" bit comes from and the "Mr" was added as I thought it sounded nice, friendly and approachable."

So there you have it - proof of what I was saying about his kind nature.... you really can get a good sense of a person just by following their 140 character tweets!

Mr Yen is also on Etsy.
