Papercraft Roundup

I have been receiving a steady stream of customs for my Calling All Cars project.
Here are the next 2 great designs and I will be introducing more as soon as I have time to build them.

First up is this fearsome hot rod by Matthijs Kamstra aka [mck].
Matthijs went all out with a whole extra sheet of custom parts. This one took some building!

Second is a rather smart Mexican Day of the Dead low-rider by Jonathan Greenwell aka Jonny Chiba.
I think the low-rider idea really suits the original form of the car.

Both of these artists have craft featured in the Urban Paper book.
Speaking of which, Matt Hawkins just sent me a flyer for the Urban Paper book launch party and papertoy art show. The show will be held at the Mobius Gallery in L.A. on Saturday May 2nd from 7pm. Anyone in the area please go and check out what promises to be a really fun show. I would love to be there, but it is not to be.

Also on the paper tip, I have just mildly renovated the Horrorwood Hills site to hopefully make it more accessible. All my new craft will be available from the site from now on.

Lastly I have recently started Twittering, so most days you will be able to find out what thoroughly exciting stuff I am up to in the Twitter box to the right.

More customs to follow soon, and I will also be releasing the first wave for download as soon as I can get around to making all the models.

Calling All Cars」プロジェクトの嬉しいニュース!

第3の参加アーティストはMatthijs Kamstra(別名[mck])。

第4参加者はJonathan Greenwell(別名Jonny Chiba)。

以上のアーティストのデザインは今月末に発売される「Urban Paper」の本に載っています。
「Urban Paper」と言えば、この間編集者のMatt Hawkinsから出版記念パーティーについての連絡を頂いた。
パーティーとギャラリーショーは5月2日(土)の7時から、ロサンゼルスのMobius Galleryで開催される。

そろそろ「Calling All Cars」のクラフト第1弾(5デザイン)を無料ダウンロードできるようします。
そのために、Horrorwood Hillsのクラフト専用サイトをもっと分かりやすく先週リニューアルしました。

Gravity 08

The Art of Gravity group exhibition finished last Sunday.
We had a pretty good week with roughly the same amount of visitors as last time.

As an artist it is always interesting to see what kind of things catch people’s attention.
This time I had more detailed and perhaps more horror themed pieces on display, but as always it was the “cuter”, simpler characters (like my “Meat Bear“) that seemed to be more popular. Hardly a surprise I suppose, and the reason why I always try to produce a range of work as I know that skulls are not to everyone’s liking. It was also the first time that I had displayed my papercraft, which gave people something a little different to look at.

I am currently playing with some ideas for different kinds of exhibitions, but if possible I would like to keep the Gravity project going and have at least one group show a year.

Thanks to all the members and also to our visitors of course.

The Art of Gravity展 第3弾」が先週の日曜日に無事終わりました。

でも、やっぱりシンプルで可愛いキャラクター(「Meat Bear」など)の方が人気を集めた。

After a year’s hiatus The Art of Gravity group show will return this October from the 13th to the 19th.

The flyers and the posters are done and are presented here and more details can be found on the homepage.
There will be painting, photography, sculpture, silver work, bags and a lot more.
I myself will be displaying illustrations along with some t-shirts and other products.

Success for Gravity

The Art of Gravity Part IIは日曜日の夜に無事に終了しました。


The Art of Gravity Part II came to a close on Sunday.
All in all it proved to be a very successful week, both in terms of visitor numbers and sales.
We were also featured on local TV and interviewed live on the radio!
A great time was had by all, thus securing the continuation and expansion of the Gravity project.
Many thanks to everyone who took the time to come down and see the show, and of course to all the members for their hard work.

Watch this space for more action in the near future.

Gravity and Skulls

Art of Gravity展の第2弾!10月8日(月)~14(日)に決定!

今回の展示会はGraph Designがスポンサー。前回の展示会がきっかけとなって、以来色々なプロジェクトを考えたりしていたので、必然的な偶然?のようだ。
メンバーが増えたり、入れ替えたりしながら、これからも定期的にArt of Gravity展をやって行きたいと思ってる。



Firstly I would like to officially announce that we will be holding the second Art fo Gravity show for one week from the 8th of October this year. The venue will be the same as last time (Kitahama, Takamatsu) but this time membership has swollen to 8 artists. This was obviously a nice surprise and as with last time we have all bases covered as far as genres are concerned – silver accessory design, clothing, bags, sculpture, photography and of course some graphic art from myself.

This time the show will be sponsored by Graph Design, who fittingly enough I came in contact with through the first show. I am hoping this will become a regular thing with an ever expanding/changing group of artists.

The finer details have not yet been decided but I will post them as soon as they appear.

One of our new members is Hamada-kun who hand crafts silver accessories of the skull and bones variety. The level of detail shown in his work is intense and each piece takes a considerable amount of time. Amazing work considering that he also holds down a full time job and humbly suggests that his silver work is just a hobby. Anyway take a look for yourself.
