MARSHALL: First of all I was very honored to be asked to submit material for the show, being in the company of some of the papertoy designers I really admire. The people at the gallery did a great job presenting all our pieces in a very unusual setting. They managed to get hold of two truckloads of paper that was about to send to China to be recycled. Using this material they created the perfect environment for our toys to hang around.
