Super Secret Papertoy #3 Goe N. Green

Here is a custom I did of my Shelf Sitter papertoy, Goe N. Green. It's for a papertoy art initiative spearheaded by Stand Up Art and will debute as a print on recycled paper at LoveFest in San Fransisco. The project is to incourage DJs and other promoters to use recycled paper for thier flyers, postcards and handbills and add a papertoy to the back of these things and you have a collectable that won't just be instantly thrown away. So if you happen to be at Lovefest this weekend keep an eye out for Goe and his paper friends. Pretty soon he will be available for download from the Stand Up Art site here.
