So you wanna make a Foo Foo Paper Craft...

Well here's how you can! Below you will find the pages to click on and print out to make your very own Foo Foo paper craft! Isn't that exciting!?

I recommend printing the 2 pages for his body on card stock or some other heavyweight paper. Print the directions on regular copy paper as it will keep the ears lightweight.

Have fun!

The Foo Foo Paper Craft (And the Process)

"So Mike, how'd ya make your paper craft?" Well, here's your answer in photgraphic evidence. I decided to sort of record the process of putting Foo Foo together. The 3rd time was a charm. I like the way he came out this time and I think the change in head size helped to make him more like his drawn self. Well Foo Foo, welcom to paper craft world! Maybe it will be the first thing in your life to put a smile on your face. Then again...maybe not.

Some Accents from my Internship

Today I've been designing some calligraphic accents at the Paperie. It's been pretty fun. I love the combination of illustration and graphic design into one art form. Here is what I've come up with.

It's a Foo Foo Papercraft! (Almost...)

This is attempt number 2 at assembling a Foo Foo papercraft. Let's just say that attempt number 1 ended in a lot of crumpled paper and steam rising from the top of my head. Anyway, this go around went much smoother and there are now much less kinks to work out. I forgot to completely readjust his head so I had to tape it together because of a few extra pieces. It's actually a quick fix. Also, I think his ears will need to be printed on a different stock than his body in order for it to not tip him over. I'm glad that the mallet did exactly what it was supposed to do, and that's keep him upright, because last time he toppled over so, so many times. I hope the 3rd time is the charm and no more revisions will be needed after that. We shall see.

Demon Project: Box and Card Back

So coming down the home stretch on the 52 Demon project, here are a couple of designs for the box and my design for the back of the cards. I decided to lay in a pattern behind the design of the back of the card to kind of give it the feel of a traditional playing card. The two boxes have different textures on them. I am kind of leaning towards the top one. I've almost finished coloring the demons (12 to go). I have put Photoshop through basically everything it can do. I can't wait to see the final product.
