I was making puppet versions of Trip and I looked at various Toy designs to help me with the practical functions. I also looked at some paper-toy designs that inspired me to make my own, as a bit of an additional Trip giveaway. This was just a quick idea for one! There’s a really interesting book on paper toy design in the library called “We Are Paper Toys”
So this is Pepsi. Remember her from before? She’s changed a bit… she’s got some tattoos. She’s bad-ass. I was looking back at pictures of Mexican cholas that inspired me at the beginning of the project, they’ve got wicked style. Pepsi has serious LA street-cred. don’t mess with her.
