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.Â More of her incredible work can be seen here on Flickr.Â On an interview with â€˜The Tools Artists Useâ€™ she distinguishes her application of digital and non digital tools:
â€œThe 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.â€
