To see more of Watabe's work, visit his site at kamimodel.com ('kami' means paper in Japanese).
Stay tuned for more paper toy art on the blog this week - and look out for the new December issue of CR in the shops which will feature a bound-in 170gsm blank custom Tougui toy template (in association with Arojowiggins Creative Papers) so you can make your own (blank version shown above). The best customised toy will win prizes! Full details to follow later in the week.
Some of these are like sculptures. Really impressive.
Wow! Still baffles me every time I see this type of work.
WOW, that's art. Great job with the paper.
