Urban Paper show and book give away!



Hi all-

If you're going to be anywhere near L.A. this Saturday, May 2nd then be sure to swing by the Mobius Gallery to check out the Urban Paper show, a papertoy exhibition and release party for Matt Hawkin's amazing "Urban Paper" book ( Amazon link ).

I'm really pleased to have been invited to participate in both the book and the show. My contribution to the book was a custom design I did (below) of my NaniBirds called NaniDad and the Peeps.



I normally sell sets of NaniDad and the Peeps, printed out on archival quality card stock, on my Etsy site but for the first 100 folk to comment on this post I'll send along the complete pdf of NaniDad and the Peeps.

In further celebration of the book release and show, I have 3 copies of the Urban Paper book I'd like to give away. But you'll have to work a little for this one ^__^ .... I'm hoping to make Batch Four of NaniBirds released the best batch ever. So I'm hoping the offer of a free book will get your knives and glue sticks out.

Using a complex algorithm of date submitted times complexity of design squared by what I ate that day divided by my mood and employing the completely undemocratic method of what I like best, I'll send three lucky designers a copy of the book.

So if you're in the L.A. area this weekend, be sure to check out the show at Mobius and if you'd like a free copy of the Urban Paper book, get out your knives and glue and send me your birdies! Oh and if you need the template again you can find it here.

Let's get hatching!

Josh

So stoked to have another set of your awesome birds. Can't wait to see Batch 4. I'm still finishing up making that last ones. I would have loved to have been at the show but had to work, that and I live in BC Canada.

Thanks for the free NaniDad and the Peeps as well.

Cheers!

I've been interested in origami and model making for some time but have only recently realized that paper is my favorite material for building.
My 3-year-old is fascinated and some of my high school students are as well!
I'm really going to appreciate your blueprint, and I'm going to search out the Urban Paper book...
Thanks!

I bought the book, but I cannot print the pdf, I mean, the colors don't print! I wanted so much to make Nanidad and the Peeps

mckibillo said...

J5ff-

mckibillo said...

Andrew-
Thanks! glad you're digging my little birds. Email me at josh(at)nanibird.com and I'll send you a link.

firetiger said...

I have to say, the nanibirds are made of awesome. We have a small collection of them throughout the house...both our workplaces...the dashboard of my car... You get the idea.

I've been searching for the blank template, and the link here doesn't seem to be working for me - if I beg nicely, is there an alternative way for me to get a copy?

mckibillo said...

firetiger-
Hey weird, yeah it wasn't working... thanks for letting me know. Well it's fixed now, so please download away!
Thanks again

Janet said...

Thank you so much for the NaniBirds on your site. They are great fun as art projects for my daughter, who I homeschool (on a budget!) The blank templates are fun to color and put together. Your NaniBird daddy, mommies, and peeps are excellent; I really love the Japanese elements. Thank you again for your generosity!

mckibillo said...

Janet-
I'm really glad you and your daughter are enjoying them! It really makes it worth it when I get comments like yours. Thanks.
