There are really some great dutch papertoy designers, and Marshall Alexander is one of them!
Marshall is one of the most modest people that I know, but I don’t have to be….
He thought that he needed some practice, so before he launched his own papertoy series (Foldskool heroes) he created a series of custom:
A Hedkase by NiceBunny:
A SIZZA by Nick Knite:
A Speakerdog by Ben the Illustrator
And some of his own papermodels:
And after that I found his thing: the one piece papertoy…
I like this one very much:projectfatchunk
and it’s on a postcard!!!
And then he decided that he had practiced enough: and started with the amazing Foldskool heroes series:
I must confess that I didn’t took the time to download the Foldskool template when Marshall published it…. But when I did, I wanted to create one: the template is really very smartly constructed.
A little quote from Marshall’s site:
… aiming to make money doing what I liked to do best: graphic design and illustration. So currently I work as a graphic designer at a small company in The Netherlands and spend my spare time illustrating my childhood memories and designing papertoys. Enjoy!
I’m glad that I’m created a beautiful Foldskool heroes Batmobile, because his reaction was Nukk:
Marshall did a Drukk-custom, which I really love:
Nukk is really the bomb.
