Mine is Martin Tomsky, who's yours?



If you had to pick just one laser artist/craftsman who makes your heart flutter, who would it be?

It’s an almost impossible task for me as I have several artists who inspire me, but Martin Tomsky is at the top of my favorite laser artist list. His intricate layers are just mesmerizing and I love his simple little whimsical designs too. He has a medieval feel to a lot of his work and I love how he makes something beautiful out of the macabre.

If you aren’t familiar with his work, I suggest spending a few hours taking it all in! I’ll help you by adding a few links below. I highly recommend the twitter page as you get a glimpse at his design and layering process.

Sorry for all the pics, I couldn’t narrow it down to just one or two!




Wow, these are absolutely georgeous! I don’t know about the others but the London Below design illustrates the Neil Gaiman book Neverwhere.


I didn’t even know there was a title of laser artist until now! :slight_smile:

Thanks for sharing MT’s work, it is wonderful.


Ok, now he’s one of my favorites too :smile:


This style of work is probably the main reason I ordered a glowforge!!

Very exciting! (Mine are finger painting in comparison…)

Off to look for more of his work!


Wow, his work is amazing! Thank you for sharing it :slight_smile:


Mind blowing!!!


Inspiring stuff.
And we’re all about to become laser artists. For better or for worse.


Exactly the stuff that made me order the GF too John. Can’t wait to see all the things you creat with yours.


Holy cow those are cool!


Here’s an early one I made on a scroll saw for my brother. It’s primitive next to Martin’s, but I can’t wait to make more of them on the Glowforge!


That’s really nice!


Really lovely! If you can do that with a scroll saw, you’ll make magic with your GF :slight_smile:


I honestly don’t know if there is such an official title as “laser artist”, but there should be!


This guy calls himself a laser artist, but it’s the other kind.


It’s a toss up between @m_raynsford and @smcgathyfay for me. They both have been very inspiring.


Feelings are mutual @marmak3261 :slight_smile:
