And just in time for Xmas! What could be better than a bunch of FREE NaniBirds to give away? 40 in fact(!), all amazing designs sent in from all across the globe. There are a lot of great skins and custom designs in Batch Four. Too many for a single page, so remember to click the little "next page" button at the bottom of each page to see the rest. Go to…
Hi all, it's been TOO long between batches… and the world needs more NaniBirds! I really want to get Batch Four released into the world. Some folks submitted designs MONTHS ago and I just never got it together enough to do a Batch release. So I need your help!
I've re-opened the NaniBird shop with a special deal. Just enter the code "4for3" when you checkout to get your free Glueless NaniBird! Visit nanibird.com to check it out! Not sure what Glueless NaniBirds are? See…
And it's full of Glueless NaniBirds. Huh? No glue?!?!... Glueless NaniBirds are exactly what they sound like… you just pop 'em out, fold 'em and stick 'em together! I pretty much completely redesigned the original NaniBird template in order to achieve this tab and slot method of construction.…
The Hoogte 80 festival in Arnheim, Holland was a four day family-friendly festival of theater and art and looked like a lot of freaky fun. But one of the highlights had to be the NaniBird workshop! ^___^ The organizers even made a few giant wooden NaniBirds, including one with a couple of small TV's for eyes. Wish I could have made it there, looks like everyone had lots of… Continue
Yup, it's not a NaniBird...... Presenting Mr. Sanpo AKA Sir Sanpsalot AKA Sanpo-san AKA He Who Walks. He originally made his debut at the Tokyo Urban Paper show, but it's just taken me a while to post him. It's a double-sided design with posable arms so I think it will also lend itself well to customizing. You can download the full version… Continue
NaniBird lover Diane sent me pics of this absolutely amazing custom. I love how far she's taken the "DNA" of the design and tweaked it. It's a really cool mutant!
Diane actually sent this to me a couple of months ago, but I'm just getting around to posting it now (busy, busy, yadda, yadda.... ). If you'd like to see more of her funky creations check out her flickr…Continue
On a whim, I entered "The Dears", a papertoy collaboration I did with Ben the Illustrator, into this year's American Illustration, and it got in(!?!). Onto the website, not the book itself, but still I'm quite pleased. Apparently (from the email they sent out), "it was one of only 583 images from a record-breaking 8,100 submitted" to make… Continue
Yay! At long last Batch Three of new NaniBirds is done and ready for your downloading pleasure. Thirty awesome designs, by thirty awesome (and generous) artists from around the world, just waiting to get hatched. So get out your glue sticks and start hatching!
To all the artists and designers who submitted designs, thanks so much (!!!!) for your… Continue

I recently showed some NaniBirds at the Tokyo Fragment 2008 show. It was a lot of fun, but since I had only a limited amount of display space I had to come up with some way of showing off my NaniDad's and Mommi's. So I came up with the "forest" idea (yeah, those are supposed to be trees). To see build pics of the forest, check out my flickr…Continue
