I would like to let you know about a lovely project that I'm working on.
Maybe some of you have already checked the last post I made at the ultimate website about papertoys.
I speak about MyPaperFace!

Indeed, I work on this new concept of online papertoys customisation.
I worked on the papertoy template, the illustration of the DIY module and on the web design.
We were on fire last months and right now we are so happy about the result!

More pics and infos on

For sure I will tell more infos about the website soon so stay tuned and…

Tougui x Youko

One year ago I was contacted by Youko a new bag brand to make a design for the first artist serie.
I've received few samples and the product is really dope!
You can get one of mine on the web store.
(take a look to the others designs they are great!)

Tougui x Night of the Exquisite Corpse

The Night of the Exquisite Corpse opening reception is this Friday, August 17th, from 7–10 p.m! Stop by Light Grey Art Lab to see a horde of mini-zombie papercraft toys! We'll also have refreshments, free DIY zombie templates, and an interactive display letting you swap the head, torso and legs of the zombies to make some truly bizarre combinations of creatures!

Artoyz Fake-stival / NEWS!


Long time without posting!
Shame on me...
But no worries, I'm still alive and I work a lot on different kind of projects.
I will add some informations later.

But right now, let me introduce on new exhibtion! the ARTOYZ FAKESTIVAL!

The main theme was to create a fake festival (with the line up we want) and of course create the poster of this festival!

Check the real guest list of the exhibition!
That's sound real good!

After « School’s Out » (2010), where a selection of artists have illustrated a remembrance of their school time, then « Blockbusterz » (2011), where illustrators were challenged to reinterpret the blockbusters of those past 30 years, here is the new group exhibition for this summer 2012: Artoyz Fake-Stival.

Summer is definitely the music festivals period: from Glastonbury to Eurockéennes, from Route du Rock to Vans Warped Tour or Primavera, Sziget and many more. Each festival has its own Line-up and its visual identity, one managed by the programming team and the other by a graphic designer or an agency.
The idea of Artoyz Fake-Stival is offering to artists and illustrators the opportunity to do the programming AND the poster!
A fake festival for a real show.

Here is the list of the participating artists
Atomike Studio, Auregrafik, Denis Carrier, Craiion, Cuypi, Førtifem, Georges Le Mercenaire, le crew des Haterz, Horsujet, ILK, Mega, Alexander Nacache, Niark, Frank Pellegrino, Sang noir Studio, Short, Theoze, Tougui

The artists’ creations will be printed in limited edition Giclee print and display for all summer in the gallery Artoyz.

what THE FUCK??!

Like I said in one of my last mail. The world of Papertoy is soiled by people who totally rip the spirit of sharing and the work of Papertoy makers.

The following words tell the story of Christopher aka CubeCraft - one of the most important and creative Papertoy designer that I known...
it's totally scandalous...


Here is an e-mail exchange I just concluded from over the last hour with "Romain M (" His is RED mine in BLUE.


I am a French dealer, I sell your creations on french websites.

I sold about 100 of your productions since the beginning of 2012.

Do you have Disney characters? My clients want Disney characters.

Thank you for your response.

Best regards.


What is your website?



I give the templates away for free, they are not to be resold!

You are just taking my work (and the work of others from the looks of it) and profiting off of it? And then you have the audacity to tell me and request more?
Rare et limité? LIES!

You are ripping me and these other artists off and conning your customers!

Yes, "rare et limité" because I'm the only seller with these products.

Do you have Disney characters?

Thanks you.

Best regards.

I have notified ebay about your infringements of my work and are letting the other paper toy artists know as well so they can do the same.

You have no copyright on these paper toys.

Well, you don't want to provide me the Disney characters, I'll look elsewhere.

But if you change your mind, you can send me samples printed to my address.

Vivacti Services
31 Rue du President Wilson

Thank you.

Best regards.

I absolutely do, they are my artwork. You took them from my site, print them and sell them. You are now asking me for more.

It is you who have no rights to them. You think you can just find other peoples work online to sell for yourself?

Ok I'll find other peoples, don't worry.

You are the worst.

I've contacted ebay's Vero program on my own behalf but I cannot on behalf of the other paper toy artists he is ripping off. If you see your stuff on his page you can contact ebay here:


What the fuck!??
Who're those guys??

Please don't buy this products.
If you see something be sure that's the original work of artists...
