It’s been a while … I need to share more papertoys with the world.
So here is another custom papertoy from me: GrummSkull.
This papertoy is a custom based upon the paper skull from Patrick Pasques.
The paper spring used is really great! Better then the spring I used for Drukks and much simpler!
Check out Patrick’s work, its really amazing (blog is in French, but even without translation the images speak for themself) and support his work and buy his books!
My creation is based upon the fact that Shin got inspired by a drop of water. The (head-) shape he created made me think of an orange squeezer and I decided to make a character based upon that.
Some minor changes to the original design: shortened the ‘head’ and removed/replaced the arms with my own design. And of course an orange!
Hope you like it.
Update #1: I have added Squeezzrr also to the gallery of Pop’set. It will be visible in 48 hours :D. To bad that there is no like button anymore π
Update #2: I was missing the possibility to “like” this! So now you can do that here: like me on facebook. So like me alot π
I couldn’t help myself, and even with a broken wrist I designed a Calling All Cars-Custom:
I know that there are some other drivers in the race: Matt Hawkins
and of course Horrorwood himself…
But lets be realistic…. this isn’t going to be a fare race.
A bear, penguin and a monkey: they are just circus animals. And don’t get me started about the zombi.
And the tires are just so one dimensional….
If this is the best they can find for this race, we don’t even have to race and just give me my price.
Some other nice-toknow information: Scott is a Graphic Design Teacher, which isn’t that special: a lot of papertoy designers have a creative job or education. No, besides teaching Graphic Design, Scott is also in charge of an after school program: F studio.
As a design teacher, I often throw in a lot of hand skills oriented components to the projects I assign. The computer plays a big part in all of our projects, but the finishing of a project, whether it is binding a box or constructing a packaging comp, is the part that makes the project complete. Paper toy crafting just seems to be a natural next step, combining design and illustration, hand skills, and toy making.
we are making our own vinyl toys, including the design, sculpting, and casting of resign models
How cool it that!!! I’m trying to figure this stuff out in my spare time and here is a teacher who can teach you everything you ever wanted to know. Man I’m jealous.
Visit Cabrillo Design Lab for more info.
Check this out: Custom self portraits by students of Scott (and himself) based upon boxy from Shin Tanaka.
And way down here on the end of the post… Scott told me that one of his students is working on a Drukk and she wants to have the last slot in series 1. Please do, you can have the last slot. And when you have filled that last spot I will start on the Selfish Series 2. π
