Graphic Designer & Illustrator
Eiko Ojala is an illustrator, graphic designer and art director. Even though the work I have shown here, he refers to as illustration, I feel like its more like paper engineering. Eiko uses different kinds of papers and through a technique of layering them he creates real life images. Since each layer is not always perfectly flat, it creates shadows and depth, bringing the 2D pieces to life. The X-Acto blade must be Eiko's best friend.
Eiko has a great portfolio site, his bio is short, but his work speaks for itself. Be sure to check it out, but in the mean time, here are some of my favorites.
