art toy design (week7)
I love candy paper! It’s colorful attractive and interesting. So far, I have probably collected more than 500 pieces of candy paper. I always thought about doing something project with it, now I finally have the opportunity.
The origin of Mr. Candy is a small handcraft that I made when I was in freshman year. I wrapped some toilet paper into a ball and put it in a piece of mint candy paper and drew an eye on it. The combination of sweet candy paper and creepy eyeball is so weird but cute, which is my favorite!
I want to enrich this character and give it its own personality--Not just a little monster that has huge eye and exaggerated eyelashes, but also be delightful and strange. And what can be stranger than putting suits, briefcases, candies and eyeballs together?
my life is too hard
maybe because we are hard candies
A typical Mr. Candy works in a law firm, wears a neat suit and clean leather shoes every single day. He carries an antique briefcase wherever he goes. He doesn’t like laughing (maybe because he can't?) and is very picky about everything. He enjoys spending a lot of time taking care of his eyelashes every day.
