Arnie for Urban Paper at Subwalk

This is a papertoy I designed exclusively for the Urban Paper show at Subwalk in the Netherlands this August. I named him Arnie after the first boss i ever had. Rough and abrasive on the outside but a a real good guy on the inside. Also Subwalk is in a town called Arnhem so it works as a nod to that too. Soon I'll post some making of photos if your interested on my flicker.

And yes I did lose it once or twice gluing all those damn little spikes together.

Seems my papertoys are always made of flat or curved surfaces. I have be seeing tons of geometric paper folding online. So this idea came about from me trying to incorporate a geometric dimensional texture into one of my goofy papertoys.

Hey guys I don't exactly have a template for this guy I approached this one more as a paper sculpture a lot of the parts were made on the spot. But I do plan on releasing a smaller more manageable version in the future.
