Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

I will keep this dicussion short because I broke my wrist and typing with one hand isn't easy...

I'm right handed, and my left wrist is broken.... so that is a plus.
But creating illustrations on my computer doesn't work.... so creating stuff the normal way is out of the question.

I have some ideas how to keep busy with papertoys and designing papertoys,
but what do you think I should do?

get well soon!!
Breaking your wrist sucks big time, you'd better broken a leg or an ankle-bone like me. That's how I got involved in this paper world. But I don't understand why creating illustrations on your comp doesn't work you're right handed. (but I'm no professional) Keep on designing and let someone else do the building. (I'm volunteering) And get well.
Matthijs: Get Well Soon! (Beterschap!)

Methuup: Matthijs probably uses the shift/ctrl and alt keys a lot on his keyboard while using the mouse. you need your left hand for that. You can still do a lot of things, it just takes ages.

As for suggestions... Hmm. Start painting?
I've seen my lil' brother (he's a pro too) do that in photoshop, leavin' me standin' how does he do that it takes me ages. Thanks Teph.
Like Nick said, get well. While you're doing that, maybe keep busy by doing sketches, mock ups for new paper toys. Perhaps do some writing, jot down ideas for PTs. Read Matt's book or Toy Land or II Love. That's all I can think. :)
Leave it all behind you for a week or two, rest, think about it and come back refreshed with tons of new ideas. Taking some distance always pays off ... just my 2 cents.
man oh man oh man! I am so sorry! Just take it easy! so you will heal faster! Let us make some toys for you! I am working on Nick's custom atm, but as soon as I finish that, I am planing to do one for you... it's been a long time coming, eh? ALL THE BEST! Just don't push yourself... ^^
woo-hooo... me gets kustom, me likes a lot!! (;

are you better yet, matthijs? sure hope so!
get well soon!!
today I was told at the hospital that it would take another 5 weeks
Don't push it, take your time. Coz time is on your side, if you like it or not. (10 months in a wheelchair, I should know). Nogmaals beterschap.
