On The Same Page – A roundtable discussion amongst Papertoy Designers

Page 1 – In the beginning..

September 2019 marked the 10 Year Anniversary of Matt Hawkins’ groundbreaking Paper Toy Book “Urban Paper”. So we, Maarten Janssens (3EyedBear), Marshall Alexander, Matthijs C. Kamstra (MCK) and I, got together to talk about those times, how we met, our projects and shows together and where we are now.

This video is Page 1, the first Episode of that roundtable-discussion we had in Den Bosch in the Netherlands. We talk about the first time meeting each other, the book Urban Paper and the first shows we did together.

Enjoy our trip down Memory Lane and please follow, like, share, comment.. u know the drill. (;

pikabunbun. – a bunbun. custom papertoy

i recently had my bunbun. papertoy be a part of mr. BOOGIE’s amazing quaratime-killer called #EverybodyBoogieNow. from that i received some really nice versions of people who drew on the blank template and built it (you can see the post and pics here). one of them inspired me to do a custom and new interpretation of the character myself, and so here it is, pikabunbun!
head on over here to download your copy of him.
i think, i will also do the female version next and maybe some more pokemon in the future.. so stay tuned. 🙂

the bunbuns. – #EverybodyBoogieNow Edition

the current situation really is no fun, so the amazing BOOGIE came up with a great idea and Quarantime-Killer and thing to do, he started publishing blank sketches from some of the world’s best graffiti artists for you to print out and color yourself or with your kids. And we also added a blank version of my bunbun. design to the mix, which you can also download on his page or here alongside all the other amazing blank versions of styles, characters and everything else – EveryBodyBoogieNow

On my Instagram i was already sent some really nice colorful versions of the boogiebunbun, here are some of them.
(if you have done something with it, i would love to see it too, please show me! :))

#UP17 MBBY – workshop papertoy

the Urban Paper Collective just held its sixth annual workshop and exhibition at the Kunstsommer in Arnsberg. Like every year, we had a little theme for the workshop toys and our part of the festival, and this year it was „Safari“. For my part, i gave the MBBY a safari kind of camouflage look.

Head on over *here* to my portfolio, download and build your own.
