Free Papertoy of the Month February: Stubby

Some pencils can just draw, others not so much. I'm not sure how this happens but it does and when you find a pencil that can draw you keep it around. A friend, a collaborator and trusted creative partner. But there is only so much lead a pencil has to give and after many hard fought creative battles it's left short, used up, stubby. So this papertoy "Stubby" is a tribute to those great pencils past, present and future who so proudly sacrifice there graphite soul in service to the higher creative calling!
This is a pretty simple one to build for you who like the easy ones. Hope you enjoy it.
Download him here.
Next month a more challenging build, a collision of robotics and harmonics!

My good friend Castleforte has put together an amazing collection of paper beasties designed by 25 of the best papertoy designers around, and me too. Above and below are my contributions Cab and Lyle and Rottenbottom: The Teacher Creature. All the toys in the book are precut all you gotta do is add the clue. Grab your copy here!

Paper Pop! Free Papertoy of the Month for January.

Happy 2011 everybody!
I haven't posted a lot of new papertoys over the past couple of years due to my crazy schedule and I got to say I've really missed sharing my work with everybody. Sharing my creations worldwide and in a format that just about anybody could participate in for minimal cost and getting to see pics and talk with you guys is the whole reason I got into this crazy papertoy business to begin with. So for 2011 I'm reinstating the free papertoy of the month. So check back every month for a new toy in '11.
First up we have Paper Pop! I created this homage to Warhol for a pop art themed holiday at my day job at C3 as a party favor and decoration. You can download a 2 page pdf here.
Cheers,
Matt
