ISN’T IT WONDERFUL TO SEE creativity emerge from nothing more than a pair of scissors and ordinary leaves from trees? This goes to show that the best creativity doesn’t have to be complicated or elaborate—just original. These brilliant manipulations of leaves is by illustrator Christoph Niemann. Extremely diverse in styles, more of Niemann’s portfolio can be seen here.

Niemann’s illustrations have appeared on the covers of The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times Magazine and American Illustration. His work has won numerous awards from the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the Art Directors Club and American Illustration. He is the author of two children’s books, “The Pet Dragon”
which teaches Chinese characters to young readers, and “The Police Cloud.” After 11 years in New York, he and his family moved to Berlin.
