We’re back from GameCity after a fairly intense day of colouring, cutting and glueing things, and we had a great time!
We were there with a big pile of Tearaway papercraft Elk plans, and with the help of the GameCity stewards, we ran a popup papercraft workshop for one day only. We met lots of lovely people, and watched some amazing creativity at work, as you’ll see in the gallery below.
Thanks to everyone who came along, we’ll see you again some time soon!
Sad you missed the Jam? Do not weep! We hope to host more of these in the future, and we’ll let everyone know about them when we do. Besides you can make your own Papercraft Elk at home folks: Simply download the free template and print it out. The ones pictured were printed out onto A3, but at that size you really need to print onto card if you can! Happy glueing people!
Next week we’ll be heading up to GameCity in Nottingham! We can’t show much of Tearaway yet I’m afraid, it’s too early, but as Tearaway’s art style is very papery, we’ve been playing around and making lots of things with paper recently, and we thought you might like to too…
That’s why we’ll be taking up a big bag of craft materials and hosting a Tearaway Papercraft Elk building session!
All day on Tuesday 23rd (10am - 5pm) you’ll be able to find us in the Old Market Square , and we’ll have everything you’ll need to customise and make a Tearaway papercraft Elk, along with some nice scenery to photograph it in too. Hope to see some of you there!
It’s GameCity 5 in Nottingham this week, and as part of the fun, the organisers put up a load of really nice new white walls around the place. They were really shiny and really brightened up the place… Then Rex turned up with some spray paints and pens and ruined them, they aren’t going to be happy about this!
Oh wait, he was meant to be doing it... oh ok… phew I thought we were all going to get in trouble!
I had a couple hours to paint the wall (I was using spray paint so I had to be quick so it didn’t gas the visitors who were turning up to eat Sushi and watch me working). I managed to not kill the Major of Nottingham (the real mayor, not just a FourSquare user). The mad scientist in the upper middle of the main wall, and the pyramid-head-man on the left panel are my favourites.
Other people drawing on the walls to create awesome included Keita Takahashi of Katamari fame, Baiyon of LittleBigPlanet 2 soundtrack fame (oh, ok and PixelJunk Eden) plus
Babsi Lippe, Sarah McIntyre, John Aggs, Daniel Grey and Tom Brown. You can see some of the things they drew over on Sarah McIntyre’s blog.
The fun and games are going on all weekend, so if you are in the area, you should pop along to Nottingham and join in with some Game City Shenanigans!
