Torsobot 9000

As many of you know, the amazing, Mad Matt Hawkins is putting together an awesome papertoy book, featuring a whole bunch of papertoys by as many artists, including myself. :) There are also plans to include a giant, collaboration toy, made up of ten (I think) separate toys by as many artists, each one being a different body part that when put together, will make one super mega toy. Sweeeet! So I was asked to do the torso. And Matt has encouraged me… Continue

Paper Riot Cop for Atlas Gallery

I recently made this Giant Riot Cop papertoy for Peel Magazine's, "Sold Out" show at Alias Gallery. He stands 13 inches tall and carries a big stick! My original design is improved here, with his shield window and visor made of transparency film, so he can clearly see who he's beating. ;) I have included a pic of it next to the smaller original version, as well as one of me holding it, so you can get a feel for… Continue

Check out my portfolio, it's up + Toy prototyping

Hi guys,

1) At the advice of some friends/clients, I've put together a simple portfolio of my works @

Do let me know what you think of it!

2) If you're interested in converting some of your toy sketch ideas to actual sculpted prototypes, for your own delight, or for mass production, do drop me an email as well.

Grim Grinning Grunt - a HedKase custom

This is a first for me: I finished a custom design!

And what fun I had doing that:

and I call him/it Grim Grinning Grunt

I have a very bad habit of starting something, but never finishing it... I think I have about 6 custom toy designs (from different designers) laying around that need just a little attention and then they’re done.

Without knowing it, NiceBunny made me realize that when someone does me a… Continue

I got this pic recently from *Kat* who made some of my NaniBirds using something called CraftRobo. It's a kind of die cutting machine for all kinds of flat materials. Using it she made tiny versions of the birdies... you can see the size comparison to the envelopes in the background.

At $300 the CraftRobo is waaaaay too rich for my… Continue

This piece of software is not freeware: Test it for 15 days, buy it for 49.95 USD
