How did you get into this form of art? Seems extremely sepcialist to me!

Here's the lovely story behind my descent into flaky madness: I was always having fun with paper and sharp objects when I was a small child and managed to make pretty elaborate snowflakes using construction paper and safety scissors in elementary school. I stopped doing that for many years, and only cut out a few stupid ones to use for decorations for my high school band's winter concerts. Then in college before the holidays one of my roomies decided to cut out some snowflakes to decorate the apartment, and since I only had practical exams left with no need to study, I joined in the fun and made the TrebleFlake [link] since both ours and the apartment across the hall from us was music geeks. And it just sort of went on from there.

Wow, simple but effective. I like the contrasting background, it's perfect for the black ^^

Yep. It's usually depicted on a yellow background, so that's what I used.

Wow.The ovals around the Bat-Signals look really...round and ovalish. :D Great job!!

Yes, ovals do tend to be ovalish, don't they?

They do...but yours look so, normal. From what I can see they don't have little bits that squared-off and polygon-like edges.

You do lovely work! :D

I can actually get fairly round circles, ovals and other curves with the small knife blade I use. Though anything below 3mm (1/8") is usually a write-off.

Do you use an X-acto knife? My sister does this as well and her circles or rounded-edges never come out this smooth.

Not an X-acto knife per se, but close enough. I use a woodcarving knife, with blades like those on X-acto knives. It has a rounded tip so I can sort of slide it along the cut I'm making.
