Guardians Of The Galaxy Cassette Player Papercraft

Guardians Of The Galaxy Cassette Papercraft

Here is fun and simple papercraft project for GOTG fans: the cassette player from the film. This isn’t the walkman Peter Quill carries, rather the deck that is embedded into the wall of his ship, and is featured as the soundtrack cover.

I designed this to be life-size and to hang anywhere like a clock. Here it is by my desk:

Initially this was more ambitious — the player had extruded buttons and a more detailed cassette, but I decided to keep it simple so kids can take a crack at this (you just need scissors and tape). It does feature a removable cassette if that’s any consolation.

After the jump you’ll find the templates and directions. Read the rest of this entry

Breaking Bad Money Bed Sheets

Breaking Bad Money Bed Sheets

Here is a design for your bed sheets that will make them look like stacks of money, specifically the large pile of cash that Huell and Kuby famously laid on top of in Breaking Bad.

There are a million places where you can get custom-printed bedding. Unfortunately a lot of the places I found online look sketchy, or they have production limitations (more on that in a second), or they don’t reply to my email inquiries. I was hoping to make this design a reality, but so far no dice.

The main limitation is that most places will project a single image onto the top of a bed sheet. I want to go a step further and project images onto all sides of the sheet, so you can see the sides of the money wrapped around the sides of the mattress.

If you know of a reputable custom bedding place that can do a “wrapped graphics” approach like this, please let me know in the comments. My goal is to make one for myself and share the art (in several bed sizes) with everyone.

Notes: above is a queen-sized bed, with life-size bills. If I was able to get this made I would include Breaking Bad characters on the bill faces too.

Punch-Out!! Wallpaper

Punch-Out!! Wallpaper Running In New York

This wallpaper features Little Mac and Doc Louis training in Hoboken, New Jersey, getting ready for the big fight against that no-good Soda Popinsky.

It’s a combination of 3D (foreground), photo-editing* (background), and of course pixel art.  You can find 16:9 and 4:3 sizes after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

Meridian Trench

Meridian Trench Dave Delisle

My latest art print is a 27″ x 40″ one-sheet of a famous scene. It’s not available to buy just yet, I’m gauging interest first. So if you like what you see, please like, tweet, or comment. I’ll update this post should it go on sale.

If there is zero interest then that’s cool too. It’s a portfolio piece/separate project I am working on.

If you like Star Wars I have a few more posts here.

Donkey Kong Country Papercraft

Donkey Kong Papercraft

It’s been awhile since I posted a papercraft project (of my own making), so I’m happy to share these crates from the first Donkey Kong Country game (SNES). All 5 “animal buddies” are accounted for. Also I made a crate for Smash Brothers too.

I recommend you use Card Paper, which makes for a very sturdy crate. After the jump you’ll find all the templates. Read the rest of this entry

Star Wars Pub Sign: No Droids Allowed

Star Wars Cantina Sign

I mentioned on Twitter that I was surprised that no one opened a real-life Mos Eisley Cantina for geeks like me. In fact there seems to be a complete absence of geeky bars and pubs, which is an untapped market in my opinion.

One thing bars could do is hang a geeky sign like this No Droids Allowed notice at their entrance to greet customers. Nothing like a display of intolerance towards robots to endear your establishment to customers.

Notes: It could also say “We don’t serve their kind here!”, which was the phrase spoken in the film; I just wanted to be direct to those no-good robots. There is the Storm Crow Tavern in Vancouver BC that is very geeky, which is why I gave them a shout-out here.

IKEA Ribba Papercraft Part 3: Metroid

Metroid Diorama

Part 1: Super Mario 3   Part 2: Super Mario   Ikea Ribba Frame 

Today I am very happy to share another Nintendo diorama for IKEA’s ubiquitous Ribba frame, this time a scene from Metroid (NES).

This design was created by Slawikaruga, who was generous enough to share his creation here with all Metroid fans. Thank you Slaw!

Metroid diorama papercraft

I’m very happy to see this template, not just because I’m a huge Metroid fan, but due to it being the game that inspired the whole “diorama in a shadow box frame” idea to begin with.

After the jump you can find the template to build your own. Read the rest of this entry
