DIY Printable Paper Desk Calendar
Here’s a quaint little 3D Paper Desk Calendar for your mantelpiece, table-top or shelf… in the form of a typewriter, with 12 month cards with dates. The body of the typewriter has been lovingly illustrated with intricate patterns and details.
Ready-to-print on an A4 size printer, and easy to cut and assemble, with just scissors and glue.
Also printable in LETTER size, by just ‘fitting to page’ in your printer settings.
Finished size of the typewriter body: about 10 cm width, 9 cm depth and 6 cm height. Please add 10 cm for visible height of the date cards. (Before closing the body of the typewriter, please insert some small heavy objects like pebbles, gravel, sand or coins, to make the body heavy and stable.) – read more over on ETSY.
All these expertly-constructed 3D objects are made almost entirely out of paper by LA-based artist, Vincent Tomczyk. All these 3D objects made from paper are hand crafted by Vincent and then painted after they’re formed.
This kind of paper art is way different to works undertaken by, Stephanie Wiehle, for example. As can be seen in the example images below, they’ll have taken hours and hours to complete! I don’t think I would have the patience! What about you?
Vincent Tomczyk: My art centers on objects to stimulate visceral connections. These compositions represent biographies of people, experiences and interpretations of intangible ideas. Although my work can be categorized as realism, my intention is to distill the emotion of an object, then through expression, reconstruct it into my view of its essential self – free of function. [...] As an artist working primarily with paper, my art requires me to be part craftsman and part engineer. I learned a lot about how to construct things by working at my father’s side, in his workshop. I’m compelled to produce work that is visually poetic by using a medium that defies perceived limitations.
