Jared Andrew Schorr: Handy Work

There are illustrators. And then there are illustrators–the dripping with personality, oozing with expression, can’t-peel-your-eyes-away-from-the-page storytelling kind. Speaking of the latter, Southern California-based ink-to-paper maker, Jared Andrew Schorr, is a definite cut above the rest. From monsters to retro radios, hotdog-shaped letters to space cadets, Schorr is a wizard paper crafter – Xacto-knifing his witty drawings to infinite precision. Popping off the paper like mini Lo-fi animations, he’s crafted illustrations for such clients as Good, Wired, The New York Times, The Los Angles Times, NPR, and Target, among others.

Taking his paper theatrics to the web, Schorr’s recently launched portfolio site is as ultra-clever as it is seamlessly executed. Through a whacky, whimsical movie-themed concept– complete with concession stand, popcorn maker, and fringed curtain – his rockin’ hand-cut illustrations put a spotlight on his work…and his wild imagination.
