Paper People

A few months ago I was invited by Rick Iks to provide some paper toy customs for an Italian charity event
called Paper People. Here you can see the 2 customs that I submitted.

First is my version of 3EyedBear’s classic 3EyedBear entitled “Scare Bear”.
I tried to remain faithful to the original design and colour scheme while giving the character the Horrorwood touch.
Click here to download.

My second custom was of PhilToys’ Mini Box_Can. With this design I was trying out some new ideas
and went with a simple base and added some esoteric imagery. My custom is called “Esoteric Kid”.
Click here to download.

I had great fun working on both of these very different bases.

2 fund raising exhibitions were held in October this year in Pordenone and Trieste.
The events were apparently well received and so Paper People has been turned into a fully fledged project/community.
Please visit the official website for further information and news on future events.

Here Comes The Jumbo Car

As mentioned in a previous post I recently received the 40th custom toy for my Calling All Cars series.
In celebration I have decided to release a jumbo version of the very first custom I received from the masterful Matt Hawkins.
Matt’s design looked great before, but looks even wilder as a jumbo car.
Click here to get your paws on this big boy!
Many thanks once again to Matt of course.

この間紹介したとおり「Calling All Cars」シリーズの第40番目のカスタムを頂いた。
ペーパー世界の大物Matt Hawkinsから頂いた、シリーズの第1台の車のジャンボ・バージョンです。

Calling All Cars Custom #40

Late as always but here is the 40th custom in my Calling All Cars series.
This car is called “Independent Woman” and was designed by Indonesian artist Yulia aka JoeL.
In Yulia’s own words this toy is “dedicated for Indonesian independence on August 17 and also for all women who are independent, stand for the emancipation”.
Click here to grab the motor.

I think that 40 designs is a milestone worth celebrating and as such I will be releasing a little bonus sometime later this year.

相変わらず遅れぎみのアップになりましたが、「Calling All Cars」シリーズの第40番目のカスタムを紹介します。
今回のデザインはインドネシアのアーティスト「Yulia aka JoeL」による「Independent Woman」。

Salty Tom

Here is another recent custom piece – my version of Thomas Hamlyn-Harris’ “Ship’s Cat”, which I named “Salty Tom”. I spent a bit of time researching old sailors’ tattoos and decided to cover him in them.

As well as paper toys Thomas also produces the wonderful online magazine “Inavatof”. Invatof is an inovative blend of puzzles, fun facts and artwork (amongst other things) that can be enjoyed by adults and kids alike. Thomas was kind enough to interview me for the latest symmetry-themed issue and Salty Tom is also featured.

You can get my model from the magazine or as a stand alone PDF directly from my site. I highly recommend Inavatof, so please take a look.

今回のベースはThomas Hamlyn-Harrisさんの「Ship’s Cat」で、名前は「Salty Tom」。

最新版のテーマは「シンメトリー」で、Salty Tomと共に僕のインタビューやアート集もフィーチャーされている。

Ghost Hardware

For better or worse I have been very busy with the day job recently hence the lack of updates.
This is pretty late but I’d like to introduce a custom I did of Phil Toys’ “Boxcan”.
It was initially intended to be used for an exhibition, but unfortunately due to circumstances beyond Phil’s control this never happened. Phil was however kind enough to let me host my design on my site so you can now go and grab him for free.

The title of my custom is “Ghost Hardware”.
These days I see customs as an opportunity to try out new styles and techniques as can be seen here.
The inspiration behind the piece was the idea of ancient technology with the addition of a certain amount of esoteric signs and symbols.
The Boxcan form is very interesting and it is the first piece I have worked on that allows for a certain amount of poseability. The title came from the title of a track by Burial who I was listening to a lot at the time (see clip below).

ベースはPhil Toysの「Boxcan」。Philさんは皆のカスタムを特別な展示会で使う予定だったが、やむを得ない事情で結局実現されなかった。

作品のタイトルは「Ghost Hardware」。名前は好きなアーティストBurialの曲名から頂いた。

Skull King Artist Customs

You may remember my Skull King paper toy that was released as an exclusive free gift with the last issue of I Want Your Skull magazine.
Well, Ryan of IWYS and I got together and decided to recruit some artists to customize my craft.
We ended up with 7 fantastic designs from various artists who have previously contributed to IWYS magazine.
This time all of the designs are available for free download and we have split the series into 2 sets, which can be downloaded exclusively from our respective sites.
Click the relevant image to go grab those Skull Kings!
There may be more to come in the future so keep ’em peeled.

数ヶ月前にスカルアート雑誌「I Want Your Skull」のために特別のペーパークラフト「Skull King」を紹介した。
おかげさまで好評だったので、色んなアーティストにSkull Kingのカスタムを作ってもらうことにした。

New Batch of Customs

Over the last few months I have done quite a few paper toy customs and am a little behind in posting about them. Anyway, here are 2 from the new batch that are now available for download.

First up we have my contribution to KNGL’s new series Paper Monsters.
My design is very originally entitled “Hair, Eyes and Teeth”.
You can click here to visit the very nice dedicated site and download all the designs in the series.
More pics here.

Next up is my Cat-A-Lyst custom for the new series by Morgan Gleave.
I went with the first cat that popped into my head and the result is this maniacal Cheshire Cat.
The title of my creation is “All Mad Here” and you can get it (and many other designs) by clicking here.
More pics here.

Paper Demons

I present to you my latest custom project “Démons de Papier”.
For this series I invited 4 wonderful French artists to customize my Paper Demon toy.
Each model also includes a unique backdrop to make a complete diorama.

I have had this project in the pipeline for quite some time, but have only just managed to bring it all together. Many apologies to all the artists involved for the delay, but I really think it was worth the wait.

Click here or the above image to go grab these fantastic French Demons.

My original idea was to have several series with artists grouped by country, but I’m afraid that
you’ll have to wait and see if I ever get around to a second series…

Happy Valentine’s Day

Here’s a little Valentine treat in the form of a special couple of cars.
First up is this war vet entitled “I Just Want a Rockinchair” from French artist Scott Charron.
Scott has a multitude of cute and creepy things to download on his homepage “Little Paper Life”.

Secondly we have a loveable croc sporting his favourite soccer team’s shirt.
This is from Indonesian artist Shoffi Lazuardi and gets about as much as possible out of the A4 sheet.

Not very romantic admittedly, but some lovely designs nonetheless.
Click here or the above image to download these great cars.

最初はフランスのアーティストScott Charronによる少しかわいそうな帰還兵。

A4紙をぎりぎりのところまで使われている、このデザインはインドネシアのShoffi Lazuardiのもの。

Here is another papercraft custom that I completed at the end of last year.
This is Gubi-Gubi designed by Malaysian artist Harold P. Ringgingon aka Pain Killah Art.
My custom is called “New Flesh”.
I was going for a new (more colourful) look and am pretty pleased with the result.
My toy is part of the Christmas 2009 series and can be downloaded directly from Harold’s blog here.
More pictures of my custom can be seen here.
