There are many bears out there in the origami design community, and I have folded most of them: This is Robyn Glynn’s “Teddy”, a charming bi-color fold that looks cuddly and seems quite poseable.
Anyone who knows me realizes the terror I experience when visiting the dentist: Don’t get me wrong, our dentist is awesome, and very aware that I have an irrational fear that I cannot control when being worked on. A red frog (chewy lolly) was the latest culprit, taking away most of a huge filling on […]

Thanks for the suggestion Simon, this little “Reaper” does not look so grim: A relatively simple fold, few features, suggestive of form, I like it. Looks a little like a Dementor from Harry Potter’s world (except it is carrying a worrying scythe). Why a Grim Reaper? One computer dies, another is built to replace it, […]
