Paper Totem! has kicked off! This new paper custom project will bring you designs by artists from around the world, each designing their own piece of totem for you to collect + build + stack ^__^

Together these multi-coloured mascots will make one giant paper totem. Totems support larger groups than the individual. Each animal or spirit carved on the pole represents a distinctive meaning or style. Combined, the different elements strengthen each other forming a larger artwork.

The first carved customs to start of your own Paper Totem! are by none other than Shin Tanaka. Shin is famous for his highly recognizable graffiti inspired paper art. For Paper Totem! he has designed three funky pieces!

They can be freely downloaded by clicking on the links below:

Summer's here so time for some funky badges! Which type of weather it 'll be is up to you ^__^ You can choose between rocky rainbows or cloudy skies...

They're now available in my bigcartel shop. What? Bigcartel you say? Yes yes besides my etsy shop for plush I have now opened a bigcartel shop for small goodies like badges and paper toys.

There's lots of new stuff happening at the Dolly Oblong "factory" at the moment :) More coming soon!

16 April 2009

Sooo some time ago I received a message by the editor of the Portuguese magazine Smash! if I was interested in teaming up with them for an exclusive Smash! paper toy design for their first issue. The result? Smasher! A big-mouthed feisty but friendly green little creature ^__^

So for all the Portuguese people out there, Smash! is now in stores! So buy one, or three...and build a totem ;)

PS No my copy of the mag didn't arrive wrinkly it's just the background of the template :D

Ramalama Bang Bang

12 April 2009

Look who I found rummaging around the local fishmonger in search of some salty snacks...

It's Bang Bang!

This ginger kitty cat loves getting into all sorts of mischief. Besides climbing the tallest trees and chasing dogs, Bang Bang is bonkers 'bout watching cartoons. Inspector Gadget is his favourite ^__^

Bang Bang is waiting for adoption in my etsy shop *SOLD*

Enjoy your weekend! :)

Spring has sprung so time for a fresh new website look! So let me know what you think :D

I've also jumped aboard the fast moving twitter train, so ehm... let's tweet?
