Layer upon layer, each piece tells a fantastic story
The dynamic works of London-based illustrator Martin Tomsky can usually be found bringing children’s books to life… but it’s when he gets his hands on a laser cutter that his imagination really soars.
The layered ply is stained in a number of different shades for added depth, giving the swirling laser cut wood forms a dynamic energy suggestive of a 21st century Hokusai.
Continue after the break to see further examples including details of the 3D effect created by the laser cut wood layers.
This 710mm x 200mm x 25mm piece was commissioned for the Cats and Cartoonists show at Orbital Comics in London.
The following item was inspired by a friend’s father who passed away, a man who loved fishing and was fond of mounting his prize catches.
Like the monsters from mythical stories or the magical worlds of fairy-tales, creatures emerge from the darkest reaches of the forest. The depth of this piece is 40mm.
