Preview - Cubicle Farm

My wife and I are visiting some great friends in SF for the weekend. It's going to be a busy and fun filled time. Unfortunately, I won't be able to post photos of my cubicle I made for the letter C. But here's a quick shot to hold you over until next week when I can post more.

Big Bully

I love bullies! I have two of the fattest, smelliest and noisiest cuddle monsters ever (boy, that's a lot of "ests"). So, for the letter B I really couldn't think of anything better to make other than a big bulldog. I'm incorporating the corresponding letter in each paper kut, sometimes obvious, sometimes not. The bulldog's insanely good crop dusting ability became the perfect place for the letter B.

Captain Accordion

The letter A starts this project off and with it, this accordion. Looking at the accordion after printing and trimming it, I realized it remind me of something. The blue and red, the big A on the front... this thing totally reminded me of Captain America (all that's missing is a bunch of stars). I guess subconsciously I had Captain America on the brain (I had recently seen a trailer for the new movie, while watching Transformers 3). So given that the new movie looks pretty dang awesome, I think I'll be embracing the Captain and his new found love for polka music.

Hello & welcome

Choice Kuts is a paper kraft initiative created by designer Tommy Perez. Starting in July of 2011 a paper kraft inspired by, but not limited to the alphabet (other ideas may pop in) will be posted as frequently as possible.

This project was inspired by the overall lack of creative inspiration at work. I felt I needed an outlet to recharge my creativity and release the stress of the daily routine. Having always had a love for cutting, folding and working with paper it seemed to be the appropriate fit.
