Model No.1 “Paper Cuts”

Model No.1 ``Paper Cuts``

by Mike Pitzer, 1988

I was fascinated by the work of Patrick Nagel and Dennis Muki when I was a student at ArtCenter College of Design. I think it was about my 5th term when I started dating this beautiful, talented illustrator I’d met at one of those amazing ArtCenter Holloween parties. We were pretty much together for the next 5 years. I did this paper cut of her a year or so after we broke up. This is how I remember her. Although she was much prettier than I could ever hope to capture on paper.
