Marshall Alexander – Easy Listening

After doing a lot of single models the last couple of years, I’m now moving into new territory, experimenting with simple papertoy scenes consisting of a character and some props. The end result should be something that feels like a 3D illustration, but made with real-life materials instead of CGI. This model, Easy Listening, is the first attempt, and I’ve got a couple more lined up. You can download the model at my recently restyled website in the ‘free toys’ section. And while you’re there feel free to subscribe to my RSS feed, follow me on Twitter or Facebook to keep up-to-date about any new models I release for free.

Marshall Alexander

Growing up in the seventies and eighties, my childhood memories basically consist of videogames, bright plastic toys and TV cartoons. Any time that was left I spent drawing and programming games for my Commodore 64. At a later age a few of my childhood dreams became a reality when I temporarily moved to Melbourne, where I worked as a videogame programmer, did oil-painting in a studio and had my work displayed in one of the local galleries. After a course in Graphic Design I made a career-switch and became a graphic designer/illustrator. Currently back in The Netherlands I work at a small design company and spend my spare time illustrating my childhood memories and designing papertoys. I specialize in one-piece papertoys that consist of a single flat piece of paper, which by intricate folding is transformed into a 3-dimensional model.
