Better Late Than Never

This is very late but here are another 2 of my paper toy customs that are now available for download.

Firstly we have a special Calling All Cars toy that I did in collaboration with ToysREvil.
Some of you may remember that I first created this toy for sale at the Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention 2009.

In celebration of 5 years of the ToysREvil blog I remixed the design as a special birthday version that can now be downloaded for free.
Click here or the banner above to go grab it. More pics on my site here.

Secondly we have one of my most eleborate custom pieces to date, which I did for Marko Zubak’s wonderful ye-boT initiative. He is called “The Guardian”.

Marko displayed his work along with customs from many international artists at a special exhibition in Croatia. It was all very professionally done and Marko even produced a very nice catalogue for the show.

You can download the designs and find out more about the project at the dedicated ye-boT site here.
More pics on my site here.

Marko also produces a very high level PDF paper toy magazine called “II LOVE” and in the latest issue (#5)
he was kind enough to feature my work along with an interview. You can download your copy for free by clicking here.

ToysREvil x Horrorwood

As most of you probably know I am a big toy and film fan. One of the best blogs out there for covering news on both of these topics is ToysREvil (TRE), which I check without fail every morning.

Andy from ToysREvil has been kind enough to blog about my paper toys since I started out, and a while back I propositioned him about the possibility of a tie-up piece between TRE and Horrorwood.
Well, it finally came to fruition in the form of an exclusive TRE Calling All Cars paper toy.

This week sees TRE’s first appearance at the Singapore Toy Games and Comic Convention (STGCC).
Andy and I saw this as a timely opportunity to work together and my car is available in very limited numbers exclusively at STGCC. It is signed by Andy and myself and available in both the regular 100% size and very special 140% size.

The cube character was originally designed by Andy a long time ago, and his sketches that I used for reference can be seen here.
In the cube’s hand you can also see a very special toy. This is the TRE Yoka, and is Andy’s first ever real world product which he is launching at STGCC.

This year’s STGCC marks a very important point in the development of TRE and will also hopefully be the start of an exciting relationship with Horrorwood.
Along with running his own booth at the convention, Andy is also an official blogger for the show.
Needless to say Andy is very busy right now.

Info on TRE at STGCC can be found here.
More details on the TRE car and an in-depth interview with yours truly can be found here.

嬉しいことにAndyはその話にのってくれて、TRE 「Calling All Cars」の特別なペーパークラフトを作った。

今週Andyの母国シンガポールで「Singapore Toy Games and Comic Convention」(略STGCC、おもちゃなどの展覧会)が開催れた。
