Kyle Hilton got a bit distracted from an illustration project that was due soon. And by distracted, I mean he did what the best of us have: he started watching an entire season of Arrested Development. Inspired by his choice procrastination, he started another illustration project: paper dolls of the show's memorable moments.
A former illustrator for his university publication Student Printz, Hilton said his style veers more toward the realistic sense as opposed to more abstract renderings. “I just did it for fun, not really expecting any reaction,” he said. “I didn’t intend to sell them. I just like the idea of posting them and if people want to print them and cut them out, I’m cool with that.”
So why the paper-doll medium? “It’s kinda boring doing just portraits … I’m not so sure where the paper doll idea came from,” Hilton said. “If I were any good at sculpture, I’d do action figures because the characters are so dynamic—but I can’t so I do paper dolls.”
