Got nimble fingers that can fold, cut, and shape a simple sheet of paper into something that will make people go “Wow!”? I sure don’t, but that does not mean I cannot appreciate the art of papercraft, which I seem to be seeing a lot these days. I think the spread of papercrafting has a lot to do with the exposure of the art on blogs and the willingness of people to grab a pair of Fiskars scissors and try it out. Just very recently, I shared what is being dubbed as the future of food: papercraft hamburger.
Today, I found something even more fascinating: a collection of geeky papercraft. These works of folded paper can be credited to ~homestah of DeviantArt, who seems to have a propensity for fiddling with paper to create gifts for friends. I wish I were his friend!
First up, we have a giraffe. Okay, it might not really be considered geeky papercraft by some, but it is still pretty impressive, isn’t it?
This is the piece that actually caught my attention.
It’s a cute little dragon – a little too cute for my personal preferences, actually, but I still like it! Unfortunately, the friend who got this geeky papercraft piece doesn’t have it anymore as his dog tore it to pieces. :S
Another dragon, which comes from that wonderful animated movie I can watch over and over and over again! ((How to Train Your Dragon))
This is from Howl’s Moving Castle, a Japanese animation movie which I have not seen, but of all the geeky papercraft pieces in this post, I think this one is the most striking.
Agree or not?
Anime enthusiasts will also love this geeky papercraft rendition of Inuyasha. Again, ~homestah made this one for a friend’s birthday. What a lucky girl!
I saved the best (for me) for last.
