Beautiful work Kevin, your style is so well suited to paper cut out, and in turn it really adds a wonderful new dimension to your style. I hope i get a chance to see it in person!

So appealing... since Disney seemed to think that "It's a Small World" needed updating, I wish they had asked you to design the new scenes!

Fantastic!

It makes me think of Paul Klee. The same childlike and at the same time philosophical sense of poetry.

I am from Mysore, India. I found this while searching for photos of Dasara festival on google images.

Believe me, this is one of the best illustration of Dasara festival I have seen so far. The essence of Dasara has been captured very well. Amazing work!
