Chie Hitotsuyama, an artist who's based in Japan, has received a lot of attention for the intricate animals she sculpts using newspaper that's dampened and then rolled into highly detailed shapes.

By using the unconventional material, Chie Hitotsuyama's artwork takes on a unique look that's generated in part by the imagery that decorates the pages, as well as the lettering that gives it a multicolored look that's not found anywhere else.

To start out, Chie Hitotsuyama begins with full sheets of newspaper and then carefully rolls each piece into a tight cylinder. Then, she takes parts of the material and slowly builds the creatures, taking the time to get every hair or scale just right.
