Mar 9, 2009 Author: Raphael | Filed under: Call For Artists, ciah-ciah, Paper Toys


Our good friend Ciah-ciah from Poland, sick who has also been featured here on the blog sent us an e-mail a few days ago calling for artists looking for a neat project to work on appropriately titled PYRA:MI[N]DS.

Originally the deadline for this project was March 1, clinic 2009, but luckily it’s been extended until March 31, 2009, so get cracking while you can!

PYRA:MI[N]DS Series 2 Description:

SERIES 02 is going to be a new step for the PYRA:MI[N]DS project. The toy is still a pyramid made of two parts but that’s pretty much all that connects it with previous one. Hope you will like the new design and turn it once again into a bunch of great and creative pieces.
