my take on paper

when the paper bug truly hit, and by hit, i mean mack truck impact, i was out of ink. so i did the next best thing which was scour the net looking for the designs and templates that blew me away. i found shin tanaka, boxpunx, horrorwood, castleforte, vin, and nani? bird. i ordered papertoy monsters and waitied for the mail. i looked for more templates. and waited for the mail.


when monsters arrived from amazon, i waited a full two days before i tore out my initial build,…
