Papercraft Superstar


Make paper models with Grant aka Sinner

South Africa
Full time Dad, & amateur Graphic Designer

When did you first start crafting and how did you learn?

I’ve always liked crafting things, but I started with the Models & artwork Projects about 3yrs ago. I learned by trial and error, everything is self taught. It took me a couple of years to get where I wanted to be with regards to skill level, but there is always room to improve.

Can you remember the first thing you made?

The 1st model I made was a replica of the Easter island stone heads. This is still available to download on my own site.

Where do you look for inspiration?

Everywhere. Cartoons, Movies, Comics, Cars, Games, Skateboarding. I try to keep things modern, but anything & everything is inspiration.

What's your craft space like and how do you organize your supplies?

My PC desk is a clutter of notes & sketches, & looks a mess to anyone else, but to me, it’s exactly how I like it

What music/podcasts/TV shows do you love to craft along to?

I don’t really listen to anything when I work, but I have my 3yr old Son close by, & we talk about stuff. Keeps his mind active too.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I have tried modelling with clay, & will probably do some more. I also do a few paintings, but the Graphic Art is my favourite. With regards to hobbies, I like to play online games such as Guild Wars 2, an MMORPG.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Thankyou for asking me to feature as one of your Superstars. Everything on my site is free, & so I do it for enjoyment only. Any recognition makes it all worthwhile.

The things I craft are generally Papertoys, that you can print out & build. The vector graphics used to color the models is something I would like to get into further.

What's your favorite...

TV Show
I don’t watch a lot of TV, but when I do, it’s usually a series. Current favourite is Supernatural
The Prodigy is my favourite music artist.
Rather favourite author, & that would be Clive Barker
Never been, but New York is somewhere I would love to visit.
My favourite movies are the 6 Star Wars movies. I’ve always been a bit of a Star Wars Geek.
Craft Supply
That would have to be Paper, I need this for building the models.

My PC. After sketching out ideas for a model, everything from the 3D model, to graphics, & the final template is all done on my PC.
