Dear Donald, Kim, Vladimir and others, I am writing to your parents regarding the bully tactics and macho posturing you seem to be engaging in while playing in the sandpit. This unacceptable behaviour has to STOP before someone gets hurt. It seems to me that the sand pit is large enough for you and all the other […]
Dedicated to Lillian Oppenheimer, a luminary in the early ’70s Origami world, this butterfly, designed by Michael LaFosse is pretty neat: Interestingly, not poles apart in technique from “Alexander’s Swallowtail“, I chose different colours and was careful with the wing formation so it was morphologically distinct.
Continuing my exploration of Michael LaFosse’s Butterfly folds, I present the “Origamido” Butterfly: Named after his signature brand of hand-made paper (of which I have a couple of sheets yet to fold), this little butterfly is lovely – the wings seem delicate and the body seems in proportion and is colour changed.
I must admit to never having folded any of Michael LaFosse’s designs, not sure why: I found a few designs that I thought I would like to have a go at – all butterflies, and this is one of them.

This is a simple water-bombic critter, from a family of compact animals designed by Perro Cerdito: I decided to fold the cow, from a collection that contained a dog (thing) and a cat-ish thing.
If you have not seen the movie “Lion” starring Dev Patel, you really should, it is a wild ride, lovely story and contains reference to an Indian name that means “Lion”: I have been looking for nice lion models and a friend on Fakebook (Oriol Esteve from Spain) graciously shared a recent design. I knew […]
It is late, I am tired, the first week back at the start of the term is exhausting but this little alien is looking after me: Folded from Japanese foil, it compliments yesterdays model. Incidentally today is a few days after the 56th anniversary of humans in space as Yuri Gagarin first left our atmosphere
Now I am not so conceited as to think that humans are the only intelligent life in the universe, but the more I understand about humans, the more I am convinced that the sure proof there IS intelligent life elsewhere is the fact that they have in no way attempted to contact us. Nothing. Not […]
