I am sure dinosaurs were not cute – not even baby ones as they were snappy wild beasts: The little purple beauty is designed by Issei Yoshino and is a lovely exercise in colour management.
Can’t fold, busy: Remarkably I have never blogged this model.
I bought some hand-made paper with inclusions from Daiso and wondered how it would fold, so looked for a punishing model to test it out: This is Jason Ku’s Lizard – a lovely little critter with toes, an elegant tail and a funky face with gaping mouth and bulby eyes.
…now many of you know I am travelling overseas real soon. Whilst in London, we decided to take our pick of shows playing at London’s West End, and decided on “The Lion King”: I then got part way through the fold and posed a development shot on Fakebook for people to try and guess what […]
So I was putting up the tree again this year and remembered we had nothing to put atop it: I remembered an “angel” designed originally by Neal Elias, reworked by gabriel Vong that I had put in the “must try this sometime” pile, so set about folding it. A nice figurative angel, hands clasped in […]
