what makes jonny board

I have no answer to what makes U.K. artist, Jonny Ro-Schofield, create these jaw dropping pieces of sculpture out of....cardboard, except that they're just really cool and he's able to recreate large things {such as monumental buildings and such} with an exactitude that even Sotheby's, the Guggenheim and the Smithsonian couldn't pass up {to name a few} So maybe in short, because he 'can'
I'll that I can think about, are the appliance boxes we would cut holes in for flappy, lopsided windows, and colored shutters that always looked unintentionally wiggly due to the corragation. eventually my brother and or his friends, would jump on the whole mess and it would collapse, creating a whole new play structure of ramps for hotwheels. The whole thing ending up at the curb come next garbage day.
Chairman of the board, Ro-Schofield, has created window displays for Tiffany's,
Shreve, Crump and low and this quilled earring and necklace set for Christie's auction house.
the 'Grand Central Terminal' desk is complete with working drawers.
More of Johnny Cardboard's work can be found *here*
