GrummSkull papertoy

It’s been a while … I need to share more papertoys with the world.
So here is another custom papertoy from me: GrummSkull.

GrummSkull 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!

Here is the template:

Impressive Grumm evolution

Scott Schaller blew me away with a custom for Grumm

Grumm Dragon

Do you see the Grumm in there?
Lets try again:

No? nothing. Nether did I:
But it’s true, it started as a Grumm

What can I say, Scott is amazing
He should stop calling it a Grumm custom and give it his own name.
Perhaps this started as a Grumm, but this is completely different DNA.

Grumm evolution

Counting down…

Good news & bad news

First the good:
The book that I’m going to be in (book “Urban Paper” from Matt Hawkins) is printed: one of these days I will get my copy!!!!
I’ve written about it here and
here.

And this is the front:
Front of Urban Paper
And this the back:
Back of Urban Paper

You ca order it at Amazon: Urban-Paper-Designer-Toys.

And when you watch the video, wait till the last page:

it’s me with Son of a Grumm

then the bad:
I broke my wrist and can’t type very fast with one hand.
So I will be posting infrequently for about 5/8 weeks.
And the subjects will be short….

Grumm by Methuup: Dizzzy Grumm and Oppp-art Grumm

Methuup da Funky One, a member of NPT has created a custom in an way that I forgot about:

So here the example of Methuup:
Methuup da Funky One Customs

Read more at NPT: Dizzzy Grumm Custom and Oppp-art Grumm Custom

Tips from Methuup himself:

Use Google and search for images with “Op-art” or “Optical-art”

I’ve done this also, but by printing the blank Grumm template on a comic or stationary paper.

The only sad thing is that there are no templates to download.

NoissGrumm – part 2

Since my post about NoissGrumm I’ve modified the legs and arms a little bit πŸ™‚

This is a short explanation about this model:

I’m working for a company named NOISE (http://www.makesomenoise.nl) and I wanted to make a Grumm to “explain” what I’m doing in my spare time.

Now I worked on the legs, feet, arms and hands.
I’m not happy with the hand yet, but that will improve.

Little Grummerboy – a Grumm custom by Hardy

I feel ashamed, and I should! This custom is laying around on my virtual desktop for a long time now.
And it’s really great!

I present: Little GrummerBoy a Grumm custom by Hardy

Little Grummerboy by Hardy, a Grumm Custom

So lets start introducing: Hardy a German graphic designer and allround creative.
You can visit Hardy on his own blog: thepaperjam.de, it’s in German so not readable for everyone πŸ™ .
More into English? Perhaps you should visit him on myspace: Hardy has the most awesome myspace I have ever seen which is dedicated to his papertoy Bottecc.

Bottecc
You can download the Bottecc templates at the bottom of page, just search for “bottecc beta template”. (it’s a illustrator EPS, he should to change that to PDF… oh well!)

But that’s not all, Bottecc is a papertoy wrestler… Yes you heard it correct.. This papertoy can busta move:

As Hardy put it:

i started working on bottecc with the idea to make a papercraft that can really move and wrestle like the good old wwf-stars.

The subtitle of Hardy’s site is “Paper wrestling association“!
Too bad that the idea is not finished yet. I would love to send a Grumm into the ring πŸ™‚
I don’t think there many papertoys out there that can beat Grumm πŸ˜€

Grumm by Petra: Pink Grumm

Another Grumm custom: this time by my girlfriend…

Petra van Breugel designed a Grumm in her favorite color: pink. And that simple reason is also the base for it’s name: Pink Grumm πŸ™‚

I’ve been experimenting with Sketchup, but you can see that I not finished with the Grumm 3D model but it has not the same impact as an picture…
If you can send me a better picture, your picture/credits will be use instead!

Grumm by Enkeling: Grummeling – part 2

I have mentioned before that a friend of mine made a Grumm.

But for some reason I never made a download link… So this is a post about that: and some reminder for this Grumm.

Symen Veenstra aka Enkeling is a very talented illustrator and a good friend. We both went to the same art academy where we both studied graphic design …. (he is now an illustrator and I’m a Flash developer/designer πŸ™‚ )

He called this Grumm: Grummeling

When I started with Grumm I thought it would be cool to see all sides of Grumm and see the complete design. So I made a rotation viewer. But because it’s a lot of work creating a rotation I stopped doing that. Symen is the last one I made one for.

You need to upgrade your Flash Player

You do not have the (correct) Flash plugin installed, or your browser does not support Javascript (you should enable it, perhaps?)

You need to download the Adobe Flash Player.

If you're sure you have the Flash plugin just ad
?detectflash=false
to the current url, to bypass the Flash-plugin detection.

NoissGrumm – part 1

I’m working on a special version of Grumm: the NoissGrumm.

I’m working for a company named NOISE (http://www.makesomenoise.nl) and I wanted to make a Grumm to “explain” what I’m doing in my spare time.

I currently working on the head:

soon more about this Grumm

Zombie Grumm at Thunder Panda

One of my inspiration to create Grumm was Sjors Trimbach with Brickboy. Back then I visited his site weekly and after a while I noticed that there were no more updates of new Brickboys.
Some time later I found Brickboys creations on sites of designers who had created a custom Brickboy. Sjors wrote about it (can’t find that article anymore) saying that he was too busy, and that designers started taking matter into there own hands, that the designers couldn’t wait any longer and publishing there own Brickboys on there own sites…. (if I remember the article correctly, Sjors didn’t mind…)

When I red this, I couldn’t image that happening to me…..
Well for everything there is a first time: I’m too busy, and don’t have enough time to put everything on my site and Eric Wiryanata’s took maters in his own hands.
Can’t blame him…

But it’s a nice version of Grumm and in time I will put him on my site:

Visit Zombie Grumm at Thunder Panda and there is a download link over there.
