Owl People - Paper Toy with downloadable template

My latest paper toy series is a set of Owl People that have varying degrees of social stature.
This series, is the Owl People Midlings, the trusted servants of the later coming Acolytes,
Shamans, and Warriors. Below are pictured seven of the Midlings in a group.









The Owl People Midlings come apart in several layers. This picture shows the top level headdress off, reveling the secondary headdress. 
Here is the Owl Person fully taken apart. This allows for limitless customization of each paper toy.


Build your own Owl Person here.
(Note: this is the only Owl Person template I have currently available online)
Click the image for the larger .jpg version and print.
The assembly is basically cutting the pieces out and cutting the feathered edges to your liking, then gluing one side to the next in a cone-like fashion.

Icon - Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans - Illustration

At my day job I often create a lot of iconography for various interactive projects. This particular icon was to to be used to identify a specific landmark on an interactive map interface for a civil engineering corridor project. As the project scope evolved, this landmark icon was no longer needed. 

Illustration of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans created in Adobe Illustrator with
textures applied in Photoshop.

Functional size of the icon.
