Check out Castleforte.com for new posts

Hi gang, I'm sorry I have not updated here in so long. I just have too many places to post to these days, with much going on. Don't worry, there is still much NiceBunny to come. I have plans. Big plans! Muahahha. But for now, I am focusing on my paper toy network, NicePaperToys.com, my soon to be released book, "Papertoy Monsters", and my soon to be released Iphone app, "Wack in the Box". I will also be doing the DesignerCon in November, at the Pasadena Convention Center, to kick it all off.

So I have decided to start consolidating. So from now on, or at least until further notice, I will be posting to my main site, castleforte.com. Please check it it out. I would love it if you would continue to follow me there.

Thanks for your continued support. I promise you all many good things still to come from me, and NiceBunny! :)

Featured in the new book "Papercraft"

I am very proud to have been included in this amazing book of paper craft. If you enjoy art or paper craft of any kind, which I know you do because you are on my blog, then I highly recommend this book. It is loaded with so much good stuff.


Papercraft
is an extensive survey on the insatiable trend of innovative art and design work crafted from paper. It explores the astounding possibilities of paper and gathers the most extraordinary creations – from small objects and figures to large-scale art installations and urban interventions as well as three-dimensional graphic sculptures from a vast spectrum of artistic disciplines ranging from character design, urban art, fine art, graphic design, illustration, fashion, animation and film. The book also includes a DVD with fun DIY printable templates for creating your own paper characters and toys as well as a curated selection of the best stop-motion animations.
