Inspired by the craft of origami, French paper artist Junior Fritz Jacquet folded and squished a single paper roll into an expressive face. After getting the face that he likes, he then coated with shellac and different pigments. The ability of taking something incredibly simple and transforming it into something impressively expressive is really astonishing. Till now, Jacquet has created 40 unique pieces, presents unlimited and fascinating faces of fictional personalities. Besides using toilet paper roll, Jacquet also created large masks with one sheet of white or black Canson paper. Really hope I can know how to make those of those.
Do you ever give any thought to the humble toilet paper roll? Sounds like a stupid question? A piece of cardboard, destined for the recycling bin and unremarkable household supply? But, maybe, it is not that banality? Just check out this blog, to see amazing work of those artists who have turned the inglorious brown toss-away into beautiful and inspired design goodness.

Crafty artist Beru Betto has a tutorial on his blog which shows you how to turn your paper towel rolls into pixel art. Like most good ideas, I speculate that this one came to Beru while he was on the toilet. This brings a whole new meaning to the term papercraft.
