Sleepy Bunny

Woohoo! I finally finished this Sleepy Bunny paper toy. Actually I have been thinking to make a bunny paper toy since the beginning I started this blog. The thing is my bunny 'Gourmet' always look better than my paper toy design, what a handsome fellow he is...

So here go Sleepy Bunny, he is always sleepy anytime anywhere. The other bunnies often try to wake Sleepy Bunny by bringing him to rock concert, bungee jumping or making him lots of coffee. Pictured here is Sleepy Bunny caught sleeping during dinner.

Where have I been?

Some of you might notice a significant decrease of blog post compared to last year. So, what the heck happened to the industrious Saltnpaper? Where are the fun new paper toys? Was I abducted by gooey alien? Lost in the tropical rain forest?

For these last few months I have been taking a break from papertoy scene, especially the online papertoy scene. Not that I hate it or anything, it's just that I want to be able to see this paper toy world with new perspective in mind. During this break I get to meet people through some events , I would like to say many thanks if you were one of the people that I met. It's really nice to actually talk and know more about what you think of my papertoy characters. Not that I don't like my fellow blog reader, but I have to admit internet is kinda cold and quiet compared to the real world (a simple 'hello you' comment is like a warm sunshine here, please do so to make me smile ;D)

Anyway, after venturing various toy scenes I also met some interesting fellow toy designers. One of them is from Plastic Culture , they are one of the pioneer to introduce designer toys to the Indonesian audience. Being offered to be one of the resident artist for them really pushed me to a whole new world that I have never been to. Doing various paintings, customizing toys, making linoprint... A great deal of experimentation I would say.

Now to get back to this Saltnpaper papertoy blog. After seeing that exciting stuff that have been happening out there, I think it's fair enough to bring the non papertoy related stuff here. I promise to only post the coolest stuff here though...

One last thing, I actually got these halfdone papertoys design in hand. Which one would you like me to upload first? A sleeping bunny, a cape superhero or a sitting mole? Remember, don't be shy to leave a comment ;)
