Abi Braceros aka Abz
Who Am I
I’m a designer/paper toy artist with a style that ranges from the morbidly strange to cute and cuddly. When I’m not designing paper toys, I draw and occasionally paint. My work is influenced by anything and everything. All it takes is a spark, let your imagination be the gasoline.
I’m a bit of a hoarder. I’ll hold onto anything with a cool design – candy wrapper, clothing tags, chopstick wrapper… I find inspiration in the most mundane things. Dawn of the Dead (2004) is one of my favorite movies.
