#up13 – 1st Urban Paper Collective Group Show

I am still recovering from that awesome weekend we had in Arnsberg at the Kunstsommer a week ago!
It was so much fun and very successful. We had tons of people coming by, checking out the displayed toys, participated in the workshops we gave and watched the UP-Collective build giant robots from Cardboard.. you really should have been there! Better mark your calender for next year and come by!

It was also the birth of the Urban Paper Collective and our first group show.
Hopefully the first of many to come..
The Collective was represented in Arnsberg by
3eyedbear (NL), Alexander Gwynne (UK), Chris “Cubeecraft” Beaumont (US),
Marshall Alexander (NL), [MCK] (NL), Merrci (F), St.Hellvis (SWE) and myself.
The rest of the Collective (Abz (US), Faisal Azad (ID) and Tougui (F)) sent over some templates or works for us to display there as well.

here some impressions of the exhibition:






watch the rest of the beautiful impressions of the show on HAKUSAI PROJECTS facebook-page, here!

MBBY – Grumpy Buns custom by ABZ

ABZ surprised me with this amazing custom design of my MBBY paper creation. i never intended to get customs done for this one, so i was even more (pleasantly) surprised, when i received this amazing piece of art! i love his grumpiness, while still being so cute!!

if you like him and want to give him a home, head on over to oh-sheet.com and you will find him along all the other amazing customs done by ABZ in the customs-section.

ABZ also made another special version of this custom for the #up13 papertoy-show held at the end of august in arnsberg again, where we will make it available also. and if you behave well, we might release this custom afterwards as well.. ^^
check the line-up, date and info about #up13 on the facebook-event here.

MechaBunny – Mecha6.5 +1

Happy Easter everybody
and it’s that MBun-season again!!

it’s been quite a while, but finally i can bring you a fresh new batch of cute little MBunnies. 6 fresh ideas and new approaches to designing the little hare. it still amazes me, how many ways there are to make each custom unique!
this time around we again have very diverse range of ideas for him, a scanned-in wooden version of him, a superhero, a crossbreed with a antilope, a pencil-eating MBun, a comic-bun and a cut-out version (which will take forever to complete, but will be soooo worth it!!).
this series was created by EKIEM, Sam Kwedo, Shiny and Colourful, Robert Zylstra, SevenLab and St.Hellvis.
a massive thanks to the artists for an amazing new series – i think it was well worth the long wait!
now, here they are! now: (right-)click on the pic -> download -> print -> cut, fold and glue! o___X

and because it is easter-time, i also added a new version of the MBun myself, called the MBBY! this one will be kind of limited, as i will post new versions/colorways/patterns of him every now and then, but then the old one will no longer be available..

shove it! – Deck 2


the roster has been updated! more decks by more amazing artists and also a second deck by myself! this time one of the #cactusclan members hopped on a deck and is doing a handplant (..get it, hand”plant” – cactus? ^^).

we are halfway through with the campaign and still some time to back the great cause! there was a whole lot of work put into it and we’ve all come so far, now it’s up to you to help us make sure we get to the finish. so get on over there and help us make the exhibition and decks and toys and skatepark and party happen!!

and i try to make the decision even a little sweeter:
the first five backers who support the project because of this post (and starting from today) will receive some extra goodies from me! i will send them some #cactusclan stickers, a sketch and for the first three that get one of my deck designs, i even throw in a Chester or Gunther template!

check and support the campaign here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shoveit/shove-it

shove it!

 

garrison beau scott aka baykiddead has asked me and some of the world’s elite papertoy-, streetart- and artists all around to join him on a great cause and amazing kickstarter project! we were asked to design our own skateboard designs and an accompanying papertoy created by him called the BAYKID SPYRO.

the decks are available now as part of the kickstarter campaign, make sure to check out the link and be amazed at what the likes of 3eyedbear, ABZ, sal azad, marko zubak, dolly oblong, merrci have come up with for their decks..and that is just naming a few of my personal favorites.. ^^ and they all did a baykids design as well! this will be amazing to see!

if the campaign is successful, and i am sure about that, this will happen:

THE EXHIBITION

Hosted by Thee Eye Gallery, SHOVE IT! will open the night of June 7, 2013 at the Polk County Heritage Gallery in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Each deck and paper toy combination will be presented along with some of the original paintings used to create the skate deck art. There will also be a display featuring skate photography, the Baykiddead paper toy collection highlighting the contributing artists past work as well as a history of the paper toy.

make sure to check back on the campaign site, because that is not all by far!! there are still some more new deck designs coming (including one by me) and make sure to back up this awesome project!

cheerz.

Ghostus and Señor Zapallo – Spiky Halloween..!

happy halloween everybody!
my home is haunted..!! just a couple of days ago i started to notice strange shadows moving around. at first just from time to time, but then Señor Zapallo started to call out to it and he manifested – the Ghostus! Sadly he has no mouth, so he can’t tell us his name.. if you want to, download him now and try it. maybe one of you will find out his real name.. if that is the case, please tell me, so we can free his haunted soul and send him to cactus-heaven!

and to make the party complete, get Señor Zapallo as well..they seem to get along quite nicely!

big shout out goes out to mr. merrci for sending me those awesome pics!! thank you so much!!
