In the design mode....



I've just started a new pop-up card design for someone who needs a card for a bicycle refurbisher. From top to bottom: First comes my mock-up of the wheel. I decided to lose the white in favor of the metallic silver paper. The metallic thread as spokes worked out well. The second pic is where I draw out the rest of the bike based on the size of the wheels. I've used several sketches of single gear bikes to come up with a frame I liked, and then produced a pattern for future use. The third pic is the bike almost finished; it needs handlebars, a seat and the front wheel center.

Next up is to design the handlebars so that they attach and hinge the bike to the card. More to come...

Your cards are THE BEST. Robert Sabuda, look out!

Now when people say to me, "You should sell these" I will point to you and say, "This is why not." :) Sigh.
