Separate RSS feeds Papercraft and Flash

Because I talk about two topics on my blog that have absolutely nothing to do with each other I created (well, WordPress provided it) two separate RSS feeds for Urban papercraft and Flash.

Urban papercraft: Spiky Baby Deluxe series

At the beginning of this year Shin Tanaka came with a secret project: the SPIKY BABY Deluxe series. This project had two tags “Real Arts for Everyone” and “Change the Game”….
So this project must be something

Today SPIKY BABY DELUXE SERIES is revealed:

Urban papercraft: Custom vibe

Update #1: Everything about this project seems to have disappeard, and that is the reason this post seems to empty… If you know about the new location or a gallery; just let me know.

Custom Vibe, a site about designer toy customs and ‘making new friends’, has a little paper fella that you can customize.

There are some great entries already: check the gallery for the latest updates.

So download the blank template and start customizing.

I have seen this site before, but never gotten around blogging about it, untill Nice Bunny made a custom for it: so

Urban papercraft: Shin Tanaka (part 4) – Sneakers

I read in an article about Shin Tanaka that he started creating paper models and templates for all his favorite sneakers he couldn’t afford when he was a student…
We seem to like the same sneakers!

Nike

One of my favorite Nike is create in paper by Shin: the Nike Air Force 1 is created by Shin in paper and can be found on the internet:
NIKE AIR FORCE 1 paper model and LMAC BABESTAS

download the Nike Air Force One (.PDF) here.

Update #1: The internet is always changing, so some links are no longer available. I found the template somewhere else: http://www.instructables.com/file/FUURPWYFM2KBS4W/

And the Nike AF-1 can be found here:

http://www.govacant.com/shin.html
(or download the Nike AF-1 here (.PDF))

Shin has even had an exhibition with these sneakers:

Onitsuka Tiger

Shin also worked together with Onitsuka Tiger and created a template for
Onitsuka Tiger – Mexico66.
Onitsuka Tiger - Mexico66
You can create your own Mexico66: just download the blank version here: Onitsuka Tiger – Mexico66 (.PDF).

This project has it’s own Flash site: http://shin.onitsukatiger.co.uk/.
And you can send in your customs on the same site.


If you want to know more about Shin, just read the interview with he did with PingMag: read the interview.

Urban papercraft: Shin Tanaka (part 3) – Boxy

Last week I talked about the collaboration between Shin Tanaka and Nooka: nooka boxboy.
Nooka boxboy

Which was a good reason to visit Shin Tanaka site, and there it was: another cool papercraft project called BOXY (traveling over the world).
BOXY -traveling over the world

Shin wants custom designs for BOXY, but instead creating a downloadable link on his site (like Spiky Baby or Mask Hoody), the designer has to take a picture of his design and send it to Shin. He will put it on his site, and you will get your 15 minutes of fame….

Want to? Go to the page that explains what you need to do!

You should visit the BOXY page, because there a regular updates, but you can view a couple entries here:

Urban papercraft: Shin Tanaka (part 2) and Nooka

Shin Tanaka, one of my favorite urban papercraft artists, teamed up with Nooka.
Before this post I had never heard about Nooka, but they make very nice watches (which are difficult to find in the Netherlands).

Nice to know, but what has that to do with papercraft?
Nothing and everything, in a collaboration between the two, they created a papercraft project with the name “nooka boxboy“.
Check out NOOKA Collab | SHIN TANAKA.

Or some of the pictures:




And you can also submit your own designs, although I’ve been checking this site regularly but haven’t seen any updates in the Gallery.
But submitting won’t hurt, or you can make a custom just for yourself: save the nooka boxboy blank template and start designing.

Design Grumm

Grumm homepage update

I just updated the new Grumm homepage:

New Grumm homepage design

For the people that don’t know who Grumm is: read something about this moody piece of paper.

And if your not doing anything, read everything 😉 , build Grumm the Screamer Red and be one the 10379 people who downloaded it (and, I hope, put it together) or create a custom design and send them to me. (with 8998 downloads you expect a lot of customs…. 🙁 )

Grumm the Screamer Red

Show your appreciation for Grumm by sending money, beer, holiday trips, cars, Flash books, fan-mail, transparant gifs your pictures and custom designs of Grumm to me. I love it, and will place them on the Grumm homepage to see or download.

Urban papercraft: 3EyedBear

Another excellent papercraft model made by 3EyedBear.

A one piece papermodel of a bear with…. 3 eyes.

Maarten Jansen also created other papermodels, but I’m interested in
3EyedBear

And the reason why is the custom blank template:

(to get creative with…)

3EyedBear is ready to dominate the world but can use your help!

Urban papercraft: Papercritters

An awesome combination: Flash and papercraft.

Papercritters is an online application to create and share papertoys.
Now possible to create a skin and see it in 3d.
It’s ideal for people with no Illustrator skillz, or who are not able to see objects in 3d. Its Pepakura and Illustrator in one!

You start of with a simple papertoy and you design a custom skin online (no need for other programs then you browser and a Flash plugin).

At the time of posting the site reached its maximum number of users, and when you do get the chance to get in it will take a very long time to load… It’s probably suffocating by it’s success. Try again some other time!

The site is very popular: 11000+ skins designed for the papercritter model. This must the most popular papermodel on the internet (and in the physical world)!!. Keep trying if you don’t get access because it’s really something
