Paper Robot

I’m one of the 15 papertoy artists from all around the world and we produced 25 robots!
The book is ready and its awesome!
It will be in four languages (English, German, French and Spanish) and is already available on amazon for pre-ordering.

Some of the artist in the book also wrote about it:
Sal Azad
Tougui
Marko Zuback
3eyedbear
Nick Knite
but the rest of the artist are too awesome not to mention:
Matt Hawkins, Marshall Alexander, Abz, Shin Tanaka, Castleforte, Dolly Oblong, Jonny Chiba, Scott Schallar and Vinsart.

If you want to see more, here is a link to the product-page on ullmann-publishings website with more details and previews.

Eventually there will be microsite on the Ullmann-website, where you can download free robots, some of them brand new and never released before!!
update
The microsite on the Ullman-website is live! Get your free robots over there!!!

Check more photos here, on HAKUSAI PROJECTS coverage of #up13 where we officially introduced the book to the public.

Kunstsommer Arnsberg

This weekend (11/12 Augustus) I will be at the KunstSommer in Arnsberg, Germany.

Urban Paper 11 & 12 Augustus Kunstsommer Arnsberg

So fans (especially my German fans) if you want to meet me…. or Maarten aka 3eyedbear, Marshall Alexander and Nick Knite (yes, they will also be there).

Besides meeting us in person, seeing our papertoys, there will be an urban paper exhibition with amazing artists like Ryan Hall, ABZ, Merrci, Matt Hawkins, Sal azad and many more!
There will be a workshop, loads of cardboard and colored paper!

Update #1: 3Eyedbear will introduce a brand new model, the Snorfs, so keep coming back to his blog, they will be released right after this show is over.

So if you are in the area of Arnsberg visit us and drink a (German) beer with us! 😛
