Punchy, Paper Cut Action Silhouettes

From scenes of western bar brawls to trigger-happy zombie hunters delivering headshots, the silhouette art of David Reeves covers broad-spectrum action scenes. Halifax-based artist / designer / photographer David Reeves re-creates action landscapes borrowed from movies and video games using paper, an x-acto knife, some clever lighting techniques and his trusty Cannon camera.

Reeves captures the silhouettes of samurais, Batman, cowboys, aliens and scenes from the stunningly visual video game, Limbo (just to name a few). His drool-worthy art is definitely worth a peek:
