Calgary artist Sam Heidinger made her first paper cut of Godzilla eating a train. Back then, the medium was necessary — she didn’t have any money, and it was her boyfriend’s birthday. But you know the old quote about the mother of invention. Now, Heidinger has mastered the art of cutting.
In this video by filmmaker Asim Haque, you’ll see Heidinger as she carefully, so carefully cuts a piece dear to our hearts — it’s the CBC Arts logo! (Which you can see as the logo on our channel right now for the rest of this month. After that, check it out and read more about it here: cbc.ca/1.5476624)
