im just a fan of papercraft...lol....ive tried making a few paper toys but im not too good as i dont have that many skills and don't have very good software either...:P.... i only really have one design that i think is good and worth maybe uploading....but im still experimenting.
im not an artist but i love to just draw and sketch and muck around with different "artistic" ideas..
im seriously considering a career in concept design for like games and movies...dont exactly know what those people are called, but whatever you call them, i wanna be'em.:)
I have a day job as staff Illustrator/Designer. I mostly design for kids which is a lot of fun. I also get the chance to do a lot of paper toys at work for our restaurant clients, the kind you'd find in a kids meal. The paper train I posted in the pics is one I did for work. I'll post some more soon. It's really pushed my work more to the paper engineering side of things than I would have ventured on my own, which has been a cool challenge and can be applied to the paper stuff I do outside of work. I feel super fortunate to work at a place that lets me do what I love to do. I also do a lot of freelance paper, illustration and design stuff at night after the kiddos are in bed.
I am a freelance motion graphics designer. Before that I was a graphic designer. My work is often creative, but not always, but it's never really "art". I have a serious need to create constantly, and I have the most fun when I'm creating paper toys. And I'm just getting started. ;) But I have yet to create them for my job. But maybe one of these days.
I'm a real "Renaissance Man"! I'm currently working for a advertisement company as an designer/developer/animator. My specialty is Flash. Before my career in webdesign, I studied graphic design. And before that I studied to be in construction.....
So I know all programs used in (web)design and I have no problem visualizing stuff in 3D (in my head, not in the 3D programs).
To get back at the question: I do create art for a living, but it's mostly animation (and code) and the skills I use at work is not really used when creating papercraft.
I use papercraft (and other stuff) to create balance: when I program a lot at work, I build/design papercraft at home.
But I have never used papercraft at work.
Designer , Animator and Director kind of thing... I love motion graphics and mainly work in that realm , but I love the idea of toys, and am totally fascinated, even they do come in the form of paper =)
