Foldskool heroes

Marshall Alexander grew up in the seventies and eighties, his childhood memories basically consist of videogames, bright plastic toys and TV cartoons. Any time that was left he spent drawing and programming games for my Commodore 64. At a later age a few of his childhood dreams became a reality when he temporarily moved to Melbourne, where he worked as a videogame programmer, did oil-painting in a studio and had his work displayed in one of the local galleries. After a course in Graphic Design he made a career-switch and became a graphic designer/illustrator. Currently back in The Netherlands he works at a small design company and spends his spare time illustrating his childhood memories and designing papertoys. He specialize in one-piece papertoys that consist of a single flat piece of paper, which by intricate folding is transformed into a 3-dimensional model.
