Paper toys

January 29, 2011

I’ve been applying for every available multimedia position, unfortunately at this time of year there isn’t alot available and the ones that are i’m fighting it out against every other 2010 graduate. I have been shortlisted a handful of times, just last week i made it to the final 4 out of 97 applicants so i’m doing something right and know a full time gig isn’t going to be to far away. Fortunately i’ve had a few of freelance jobs come my way to keep the mortgage repayments ticking over.

So what have i been doing with my free time?

Well apart from playing Black Ops i have been inspired by Horrorwood, Macula, Cubeecraft and Matt Hawkins at CustomPaperToys to try my hand at designing paper toys. Using the free blank templates from Horrorwood & Macula as a guide i created a Storm Man paper toy with a ride-on quad bike for my first effort. I have presented it to Melbourne Storm’s marketing department and i am awaiting a response back on whether they would like to use it. I have offered it as a freebie so i can’t see why they wouldn’t. Would be great exposure so fingers crossed.

My second attempt was for my nephews who i’ve got addicted to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They love Michealangleo & Leonardo so imade them a papertoy of each and a mask. They loved them and it was so much more gratifying than just buying them a generic store brought toy.


If you would like to make your own Storm Man or TMNT leave a comment and if there is enough demand i might put up a .pdf of the design for you all to download.

Cheers!

I don’t know how it happened but i am living the dream. I am in a band, a real band. We played our first gig on the weekend, a real gig at the Arthouse in Nth Melb. It was AWESOME… for us, not so much for eveyone else. To make up for the lack of musical talent i designed a bunch of band merch to make us look good. Check it out.

Why Dogs Wag – book & animation

May 24, 2010


Have you ever wondered why dogs wag their tails?

Is the best you can come up with is “Because they’re happy”? Well then, of all the creatures with tails in the world why is it that the dog and only the dog seems to wag its tail when it is happy?

For my minor i have illustrated a children’s picture book written by Patrick Guest aka Bluey Brookes & produced an animated short titled Why Dogs Wag… very exciting stuff. Unfortunately at this stage all i can give you is some sneaky sneak peaks as we are shopping it around to find a publisher.

For both my graphic design and flash classes i am required to design and build a game. I have used my pet dog Nugget as inspiration for this assignment. Nugget is a 4 year old Shit-poo (shitzu X minture poodle) who loves eating, pooping, walks along the beach and basking in the sun.

I have a dedicated blog for this assignment at – nuggetthedog.wordpress.com
