The BASLERFASNACHTPAPERCUTS series had its origin during a two-year world tour of a homesick Basler. Some friends gave me their Carnaval badges and asked me to make paper cuts of them. A worthwhile way to spent rainy das far away from the centre of the world, my Basle.
From Blaggedde badge to the final cut: sketch / template / partial cut / finished cut / Foetzeli
The Blaggedden turned out so well that I decided to cut all the subjects from 1911 to today. I have recently added cuts of Logos of diffrent cliques. Some cliques brought me their logo with the request for a paper cut. With a few minor changes (a paper cut is from a single piece of paper!) after all every logo can be cut.
In the meantime several cliques, along with the Basler Fasnachts Committe and many private people who really love Basler Fasnacht have become my clients.
