Ta-dah!! Say Hello to Elebot! She's the mini project I've been working on this past week! She's oh so cute! I am very glad I 've gotten the chance to work with Speakerdog on their 5th Speakerdog Paper Toy series! I had so much fun designing it, it was hard to stop!
Here's a little background on Elebot, she's a mechanical elephant operated & run by mice. I decided on playing with the old elephant-mice stories of how gargantuan elephants are terrified of teeny tiny mice. The mice spend their lives, pleasing their Mouse King by making sure Elebot runs smoothly. She's sort of like a caravan or huge bus, bringing them wherever they please.
Elebot has all sorts of compartments inside ranging from the engine room, the control room right up to the supplies & storage dept! Each mouse can be seen running around inside, working on their individual duties making sure she is working up to speed! It was tremendous fun working on the miniature canvas of Elebot's interior! I just kept adding more & more rooms to her till it all filled up!
Have attached several photos of Elebot (its exterior & interior) I hope you'll have fun checking them out as much as I had such fun designing them! If you like her, she's here for your papertoy making pleasure, DOWNLOAD Elebot here!
Speakerdog not only designs their Speakerdog paper toys, they also have a wide array of graphic designers, graffiti artists & illustrators from around the world
to help them!
