how i discovered paper toys? that's your question?
well, that's pretty simple:
me and my dear were searching for a picture of a mexican with a moustache to illustrate a playlist on deezer, and we found a pic of sergeant pepper beatles by toyaday, and then, i found marshall alexander's easy leastening which kick me in the ass.then, Touguy, Shin Tanaka, Greenelf's awesome optimus...
most of them are taken from wallpaper books. i don't know how it is in U.S. but here in france, you can go to an upholsterer (hope that's the good name...) store and ask him for them. Most of them would agree to give you their last years collection books. some doesn't want.
And we also got some real vintage 60 and 70's rolls of wallpaper we found at carbootsales. I have to find some others cos i begin to think these are allways the same backgrounds on my pics.
