in early december the amazing ABZ dropped her first series of custom Zealot Guards and i am a very proud designer of one of those six amazing customs!
here is my latest installation of the funk food podcast. this month’s episode features the usual mix of nice deep and underground house grooves – providing you with the inner warmth you need for the beginning coldness and winter-time approaching!
have a great month and until next time,
Dan Watson has done another “custom” of my MechaBunny! this time not so much a design, but a fantastic looking highly ventilated version of him.. love the idea and the clean look it has to it.
here are his instructions:
This template has no colours on it, so you will need to use coloured cardstock to print on. I recommend using 200gsm or thicker card to the colours (or patterns) of your choosing.
1 x Ear and Foot is 1 sheet (print twice)
1 x Body is 1 sheet
1 x Head and Tail is 1 sheet
If you want the tail to be a different colour than the head, I’m afraid you will need to print it twice as they are on the same sheet!
And then just remove all the Black lines from the template!
now just click on the pic and get this awesome template. we are looking forward to see the sliced Mbun in your favorite colors!
it’s MBun-time again!!
i present you the newest members of the family, the brand new Mecha6.
i am still amazed about the many different ways the bunnies
can be made to look awesome!
this time around there are again some very different approaches and styles in which the six artists have gone to work – one hand-drawn and scanned in, another one very comic-ish, a new way of assembling the differents parts, a very clean design with an amazing wooden feel to it, an evil one with extra parts..and then there is Ruang’s version. it is the first custom i gave up on building, because i think my fingers are not tactile enough to get all the small parts done. but an amazing custom and great addition none the less!
Thanks to the artists for making this again an amazing series and i hope you will all enjoy it as much as i do! have fun and keep coming up with new ideas, the next series awaits.. ^^
señor zapallo is a little crossbreed-experiment gone horribly wrong..
a mad spanish gardener by the name of pablo thought it was a great idea to mix the genes of a cactus with those of a pumpkin. he forgot to put in the evil ingredients to make the evil hybrid he tried to create, so señor zapallo didn’t turn out the way he intended.
diappointed and enraged by his failure, pablo abandoned him and set him free into the wild.
now it is up to you to give him a new home! just click on the pic, start downloading, printing, cutting, folding and glueing! he will be grateful forever, doesn’t even need water and will scare away the trick or treaters, if you want him to.. ^^
MechaBunny, Kujira and SIZZA – all customized by mr. baykiddead!
love baykiddead‘s idea of doing a ‘trifecta’ – a custom of each of my open for customization papertoy-designs. his pattern really works on all of them and each one also works on its own, awesome!
now you can get your hands on his designs and i want to thank him again for this amazing mini-series! now click on the pics to download them and have fun building!

here’s my latest mixtape for the month of september. i am a hopeless optimist and still hoping for some nice last days of summer. this month’s episode features the usual load of nice deep and underground house grooves – perfect for some last sunny days and summer nights!
have a great month and until next time,
K1X – german based basketball and streetwear label are today opening a pop-up store in the heart of NYC. and they took along some limited printed out, numbered and signed MechaBunnies! along those already published mbuns is one brand new and exclusive custom version with one of their current styles of the line called DCAC mask (don’t call it a comeback!)
i packed the signed and numbered toys in a bag and threw in one of my signed moo-cards as well.
so, if you happen to be in nyc this month make sure to stop by their store on
359 Lafayette street, New York, NY 10012 and make sure to spend some money there.. because from all he profits they make, 20% will be donated to the *Folorunsho sharity – a project that works directly with the street kids in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Sharity – it‘s not about charity, it‘s all about sharing.
two months later and the Klik is back together in amsterdam!
this time we got together, because we were invited to participate at the Sneakerness held in amsterdam for the first time.
Dolly Oblong, 3eyedbear, [MCK] and I again exhibited some of our work and even had some sneaker-related toys to present.
together with ant of Dolly Oblong i made a robot out of shoeboxes, which i had planned beforehand.
we had quite a lot interested folks at our booth and all sold some paperkits. me just enough to pay for the immense parking-fee in the parking-lot.. o_____O
After one year, the Klik met again!
it was again time for the AMS*DIY – THE URBAN ART AND CRAFTS FESTIVAL at the ABC-Treehouse, where DIY-artists met and showed off their skills and output and workshops were held. Dolly Oblong, [MCK], Marshall Alexander, 3eyedbearand I were there and showed new and old papertoys. Marten even held two workshops, where he showed interested folks how to create creatures out of flat paper.
meeting the Straat Papier Holland Klik was a blast, we had a great time in amsterdam and next time everyone should come along and say hi!
we won’t bite – promise! (just maybe a papercut, and only if specifically requested!)
for the whole set of pictures from the event, head on over to my cargo collective page.. here!
earlier this year i was interviewed by THE toyblogger, Andy Heng aka TOYSREVIL. i felt very honored to be interviewed by him and to have the opportunity to speak to his audience. i think it turned out really nice.
if you missed it, here is the link to the interview:
and a big thanks to my friend André Loessel for the amazing pictures taken for that interview!
IT’S TROOPER TIME!
