As I am about to embark on more world travel (see travelblog), I am on the lookout for a fold I can leave in each of the places we stay. Oddly, it is something I do, often hiding little Australiana figures in out of the way places, to hopefully provide delightful surprises for subsequent guests: […]
Now if we were looking for a mascot for procrastination, I think a panda is the perfect animal because, well, from all accounts, they just couldn’t give a flying f*ck: It seems they are endangered. My guess is it is due to them losing interest in most things (except eating bamboo) including sex – a […]
It is a little known fact that mice used to originally be triangular – the closer to a right angle triangle, the more genetically successful apparently*: This charming model is designed by Makoto Yamaguchi, a quirky fold that I found when browsing Tanteidan 106.

In my list of “models to try someday” was this model designed by Takashi Hojyo: A complex management of points, this lovely rendition of a Pegasus has much to love. The wings, legs and general morphology are very pleasing to the eye but not easy to achieve as a fold.
