About my art
Kirigami is the Japanese art form that uses cut and folded pieces of paper to create works of art.
My style of Kirigami involves layering cut-paper images onto a playing card to create a 3D effect. I call it Shohin Kirigami.
The idea came to me while playing cards with my family. I chose the name after some research: Shohin translates to “Small Goods” and Kirigami is “Cut Paper“.
Hello! I'm Tony Scanlon, a divorced father of 3 living in the suburbs of Boston, MA.
By day I work for the world's largest safety razor manufacturer. By night I'm an artist, photographer, graphic designer, and web developer.
My passion to create has led me down many paths and I am excited for this latest journey into the world of playing cards.
I have met many wonderful, inspirational people in the playing card community and am grateful for all that I have learned and shared with them.
