The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s fuckin’ weird shit like gay Vulcan pr0nz. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm glory.
First off this week is some paper art by Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann, who call themselves Zim and Zou.

Check out the site for more pictures, and a video detailing their process.
More after the juuuuuuuump!
