Well, i love toys and i love illustration, and paper toys are a natural fusion of the two. I have always wanted to create three-dimentional object, ideally my own toys, but my crafting skills are very limited. Therefore, paper craft gave me the means to turn my two-dimentional ideas into real world products with ease. I create most of my illustrations digitally, so shifting to creating templates for paper craft was not so hard. Paper craft is great because it brings together art, design, and craft, so i get to do all these things at once, Some time ago, i designed my first paper toys and made them available for download on my website. I started getting very positive feedback, after which i decded to put all of my energy into producing papercraft, and haven’t looked back ever since. This is another great thing about working with paper. Thanks to the internet, you can now easily distribute your artwork to people all around the world. Not only that, but people end up with a physical object in their hands. I can not think of any other medium that works quite like this
Unknowingly, i have found myself in the middle of a real paper boom, A couple of years ago, the papercraft scene began to explode globally, and the community is growing day after day. Everyone collaborates and comunicates, and there is a constant flow of activity and new projects. This is a really exciting time to be a paper artist.
