Roundup Collection

I’m notorious for multitasking, though I have been known to get stuck in certain loops, like my papercraft obession. I can’t help it, I love making things.

So for all you fine folks out there, I give you a roundup of the latest things I’ve made!

To kick things off, I present you with two more members of Aido’s Monkey Army, complete with personas:

The Mad Scientist

The Mad Scientist

I’m really pleased that I managed to get the lab coat mostly right! Oh, he’s totally crazy.  You should see some of his experiments.

Mutant Monkey

Mutant Monkey

The very first of the Mad Scientists’ experiments. Whether the experiment was successful or not remains unclear, as a 3 tailed monkey could prove to be quite useful for certain missions.

Next, I have some vinyl art for you. Not much but there will be much more on the way!

House of The Rising Sun

House of The Rising Sun

I found a vinyl EP of the Animals singing “House of The Rising Sun” in a charity shop. It’s a track that I’ve always loved ever since I was a kid listening to my Dads’ records but I don’t have a record player so I decided to turn it into art. I painted a (modern) New Orleans skyline against a rising sun. I’m still unsure as to whether it’s finished but I’ll update again if I do “finish” it.

Vinyl Heads

A simple piece but I like it nonetheless.

Next up, still on the stencil theme:

And finally…

In case you’re wondering what this has to do with my blog, I made him play the piano.

See? I’m constantly making things!

Let me know what you think of them in the comments, cheers!

Papercraft

This post is all about papercraft. For those who don’t know me, I spent a year and a half working in IT services in an university . During the summer, exams, mid term breaks and all that sort of thing, the uni gets extremely quiet and there’s very little to do, except make use of full access internet and a colour printer. (My StumbleUpon ratio was ridiculous!)

So, in order to keep my sanity sort of intact, I began making papercraft models with templates I found on the internet.

If you’re interested in making them yourself, there’s LOADS of templates online that are free to print out and make. They can make great little presents for people and I greatly enjoyed making them!

Here’s a selection of my favourites models that I made (links to original sites included):

I made several papercrafts over the space of about 10 months, most of them in work. I gave them away as my final parting gift to my job:

That’s all for now, I’ll update again soon!
