The ship in a bottle's natural enemy: the kraken with a corkscrew.

100% paper 100% awesome.

I will try to remember to take some detail shots later. Right now I think I need to watch Futurama with my fella.

This is a work of freaking awesome genius.  I love it so much, especially the crafty look in his eye as he wields the corkscrew.

This is so cool, great job! I'm always amazed at the level of detail you can get with this kind of papercraft. It's not something I've tried my hand at personally, but when I see stuff like this it makes me want to give it a go.

your work is absolutely amazing! i love paper cutting, and the way you use layers and shadows is awesome, to say the least. I'm looking to buy the hardcover version of your book on lulu, but is that an original, or is it print versions of all the pages?

It's just print versions. Unfortunately I had to make it so expensive to make some kind of profit it on it, not to mention I spent probably 200-300 just buying the colored paper to make the darn thing @_@
