I have been making cubeecrafts since 2008, when I was first introduced to an awesome papercraft in the shape of a Stormtrooper. From then on I was in cubeecraft heaven.
At first I sent several requests, asking for characters that I desired, but I quickly found out that Chris Beaumont, the creator of Cubeecraft.com was a very busy person and could only complete a few requests at a time. That is when I decided to create my own cubeecrafts using his template.
It started out slow as I learned how these are put together and how it looks flat vs 3D.
Eventually I completed a couple and sent them in to be displayed. But sadly mine were never accepted. I never did let that discourage me and I continued to create. Eventually I started this website, joined facebook, and even created a deviantArt page to share my creations. I started taking requests and watching fans create my cubeecrafts.
I continued to follow cubeecraft.com, and as time went by my house has slowly filled up with some of my favorite characters, including many of my own creations and those of Star Wars.
A couple of months ago, right before the holidays, I received an email from Chris Beaumont. He had seen my cubeecraft of T-Bone from The Swat Kats and wished to display it on his site. My heart fluttered and I began dancing around my room (so glad this was not video chat hahaha).
I had to quickly compose myself and send back an email giving my permission to display. It was very difficult to not sound like a giddy little school girl with statements like, “OMG, I like think like that like would be totally awesome…like” or, “Yesyesyesyes you can post that I love your site so much!”
I am pleased to announce I was able to compose a rather simple message giving my permission to display my cubeecraft, “Thank you so much for your comment. You are more than welcome to post it on your site. I would be honored!”
While it may be a simple message, it was one of the most difficult to write. In my mind I was screaming with excitement. My finger trembled as I pressed each key, and I often pressed the wrong key spelling words so wrong that even spellcheck was dumbfounded. It took me near 30 minutes to compose the email, read through it several hundred times, and finally click send.
Two months later I get an email from Chris Beaumont getting one last permission to post T-Bone and (to my surprise) Razor. Of course I agreed.
And now, in all their Swat Kats glory, T-Bone and Razor are proudly displayed on Cubeecraft.com.
Honored and Extremely excited,
