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 ;)
