Eiko Ojala - Graphic Desinger & Illustrator

Eiko Ojala
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.
