Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

Paper Totem! has kicked off! This new paper custom project will bring you designs by artists from around the world, each designing their own piece of totem for you to collect + build + stack ^__^

Together these multi-coloured mascots will make one giant paper totem. Totems support larger groups than the individual. Each animal or spirit carved on the pole represents a distinctive meaning or style. Combined, the different elements strengthen each other forming a larger artwork.

The first carved customs to start of your own Paper Totem! are by none other than Shin Tanaka. Shin is famous for his highly recognizable graffiti inspired paper art. For Paper Totem! he has designed three funky pieces!

They can be freely downloaded at

Have fun!
