Sunday's News and Observer had an article about Emmauel Jose, who creates paper cutting art. I was intrigued and decided to explore his artwork.
In 2011, Jose made a deck of playing cards, creating one giant paper-cut card per week that he frames so that the end of the year, he had made a complete deck of 52 cards. I went down to Cup A Joe's in Mission Valley to have a cup of hot chocolate and to see Jose's exhibit.

This year (2012) he's making a deck of cards with a bird theme.
