Paper Doll/Puppet Thing.




Here's a paper doll/puppet I made on bristol board using prismacolor markers, ink, eyelet setter, and (of course) eyelets. Next one will be a little better crafted, as the legs on this one are a bit weak. I'll post images of the next one when I do it.

What a great toy! I wanna make one--do you own the eyelet setter?

I think you could make a killing selling these at craft shows

Sweet shit!

I love this kinda thing... We should make DOZENS of 'em, make them in limited editions, and sell them randomly, llike bubblegum cards or crackerjack prizes!

Thanks guys! I think if I did several of these, I'd maybe screenprint the parts with the Gocco or something, as this one is all original and took me a while to do. Oh, and Dave - yeah, I have the setter - it's double-ended with one that punches the hole and the other that sets/hammers the eyelet. It's spring-loaded with metal rods on each end, so you just snap the tool and it punches or hammers. Pretty handy.

Sweet, I would like to play with that. How's everything? I get stuck in snow every single day, I love it and am sick of it at the same time.

I'm afraid this little guy will be chasing me in my dreams. First, he'll punch a hole in me, then he'll hammer my eyelets.

Onsmith said...

Thanks Ryoko! Good to hear from you too! And Chris, is it that menacing? Ha!

chris said...

I'm easily menaced.
His sharp fingers & nose are like knives in my nightmare vision, and he's blue (maybe a suffocation victim?), and his face is frozen into that grin, while his limbs move freely, so that's how imagine him running at me, slashing with his nose & fingers AAAAAGGH! Aiiieeeee!!!

If you tossed the seperate parts in a program like Flash, you'd be on your way to animating him.

Onsmith said...

Ha! I gotcha Chris. S'funny, it did kinda turn out to look like a maniacal used car salesman or something.

Bob - I'm a moron when it comes to Flash, but I wouldn't mind screwing around with it someday...
