Amsterdam Pt.1 // AMS*DIY 2011

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!

Well actually, he’s just a big softie who’s a bit confused. But wouldn’t you be too with 9 eyes..? O__o

Cactus Ninja – my ninjatown-tribute is online!

as a ninjatown-fan and passionate “trees of doom“-player the idea sprung to my head to do another custom design of my papertoy-cactus friend.
and luckily enough, shawn, the mastermind behind ninjatown did like my idea and has now made a post on his website and made the template available for you to download and build!

sneak on over there and grab a copy of ninja-cuteness:  http://www.ninjatown.com/2111

what would be cool though, is, if you take pics of your paper-ninjas sitting around or hiding somewhere, if you could send me those. i have created a flickr-group of where they are found hiding. feel free to join and add your pics! ^^

KUJIRA – IMA123 KUSTOM

finally added something new to the menu!

imawan rahadianto aka ima123 sent me this lovely KUJIRA-design. there is even a nice story behind his idea and custom-design. this is what he wrote:

Here goes the KujiraBatiken
it was actually a whale stuck in a group of batik sarong after the 7th month ceremony (a ceremony when a women is expecting her first born baby where during the 7th month period where she is randomly exchanging seven batik sarongs continuosly)
After the ceremony ends, the other women in the ceremony will hurry to grab those sarongs as they are believed to give blessings… well in this case the whale just won some of them…

thank you very much, imawan!
and now you can go to the menu and get a hold of him – here!
