Gifties: Cubee Love

25 Nov

I was always torn whether to post gifts I make for people or not. On one hand, they’re personal things that become no longer mine. On the other hand, most of the stuff I make is for other people, so I wouldn’t have much to post if I didn’t share anything. I’ve come to the decision that I think I’ll just use my discretion.

So! In an earlier post, I professed my fascination with paper crafts. One particularly amazing free paper crafts website is cubeecraft.com: Not only are there a bunch of cool artist original designs as well as Cubee’d versions of your favorite pop culture characters for you to download, print, cut out, and assemble (no glue needed! So cool!), but you can also freely download a template to design your own Cubee toy.

Tim and I both love assembling paper toys from this website! So for our anniversary (back in June; yeah, I’m a bit slow in posting this), I thought it’d be brilliant to design Cubee versions of ourselves. Of course summers are super duper busy at work, but I managed to make these in time:

Here’s Tim!

Here’s me!

What the template of Tim looks like.

And this is the me template.

I also made Action Hand-Holding Arms. The arms stick out to the side and hopefully the heart folds up somewhere inbetween. Tim hasn’t made these guys yet… And I haven’t tried it out to see if it would work… It’s part of the surprise Tim will feel when he finally assemble this thing, haha!

If you haven’t already, check out cubeecraft.com for awesome toy designs!!!!!!!!!!!! And try designing one of your own, it’s great!


Self-Portrait: *cough cough*

29 Sep

I love self portraits!! I love seeing what people come up with about themselves. AND I love drawing myself, because it’s so easy! So I’d like to start off my art blog with one of the fave self-portraits I’ve done.

I drew this three years ago, when I was reeeeeeeeally sick!
