These fun and whimsical paper toys are the creation of Madrid-based illustrator and film maker, Blanca Helga. They are created primarily with found paper and cardboard using a collage technique and can be purchased under the brand, Paper Friends, in her Etsy shop. More of her incredible work can be seen here on Flickr. On an interview with ‘The Tools Artists Use’ she distinguishes her application of digital and non digital tools:
“The starting point is always non-digital. I feel freer and closer to the work, when I touch the paper with my hands. Another reason is that I love the warm, imperfect look of the non-digital materials. But I need most of the time the digital tool to finish the work.”
