Some recent paper engineering and book update.


Holy cow! It's been a long time since I've posted something on this blog. I've been super busy the last couple months working on the papertoy book and some super cool freelance projects that I can't let out of the bag yet.
The book is getting closer to done all the time. I think the marketing folks decided on "Urban Paper" for the title I really wanted to call it "Cut Fold Glue: the papertoy revolution" oh well ya can't win 'em all. The pic above is of Oliver Ollie my papertoy that will be in the book.The release date is late March 2009! Yikes! That's a long time to weight but I'll be glad when all the work is done.
Here is some recent Paper Engineering I've done at my day job at C3.
The Super Man is a paper bobble head. The fire engine ladder swivels and extends. These are all diecut toys with glueless construction. You'll find these in kiddie meals at your favorite fast food places soon.
Also Comic Monkey is sold out so I'll get on Comic Monkey #2 here in the next couple months.
More soon...

i think Matt said that the pirate ship would be at sonic. This link appears to show you what toys are coming up soon. http://www.sonicdrivein.com/kids/wackyPackToys.jsp

I's also like to know where I can expect to find these!

Hey guys!
I'll post all these again individually when they are actually available.
The Pirate ship is indeed for Sonic. It will be sometime in 2009.
Superman and the fire truck are for Arby's in 2009. Superman is one of six Justice League bobbles.
(We always do presentations this time of year for the next year)
Mr. Nibbles however will be available from Del Taco in a month or two.

Snap! No Sonics, Arbys, or Del Tacos around here!

I'll have to get someone to pick one up and mail it to me.

That's so awesome!

By the way, I ordered Comic Monkey + the letterpress Mechanical Man recently and the payment went through, so does that mean I will still get Monkey?

Hey David,
Sorry I can't distribute the pirate ship.I did it for a client at work. They won't be available until the late part 2009 at Sonic (a restaurant chain here in the states. I've been thinking of doing a pirate themed papertoy for the blog here. It's been so long since I made a free toy I have a huge backlog of ideas.
