From UK-designer Theo Kennedy Cordner comes an upcoming paper toy made in collaboration with another 9 artists from around the world ("who are currently in the digital art culture"). The name of the project is "The Super Transit Series", with participating artists including: Alastair Temple / Anthony Gargasz / Adam Cairns / Stephen Walker / Luca Molnar / Craig Minchington / Samuel Carter Mensah / Parker Gibson / Reichull Rusk and Theo Kennedy Cordner.
PRESS: 'A collaboration between 10 artists with very different styles, on the sides of a paper subway cart, each individual artist's contribution will be released to the public, fully credited and a true showing of the artist's style and medium!'
Slated for a Summer 2012 release (aka end of August), the craft will be available for FREE - with all the links to the PDF files for the finished carts made available via the official tumblr page and Facebook page! Available currently are the Grey Edition, and a Gold Edition which will only be released to 10 people. More to come in time.
STORY: 'Starting from a popping thought in a drifting mind at university, I was heavily inspired after taking a look through the book "We Are Papertoys" and seeing just how brilliant making a papertoy could be both for the creator but mostly for the viewer! I had always been interested in graffiti culture, it being my first inspiration to persue a lifetime of art, so I thought it would be the only best thing to start off with. A few months later, I pitch the idea to some designer friends of myself, and low and behold, we've joined together to form a team, or crew of sorts, to creat a brilliant set of illustrations for my original template!'
