Now I’m ready! Tomorrow morning I take the origami train to travel to the OUSA convention in New York. Yay!🙂
I plan to teach some origami models. I had this idea for a composition-assembly using Román Díaz’ origami frog, Angel Écija’s origami fly and an origami frog tongue of my own creation. The result was this “Frog feeding on a fly”.
I committed a little “origami sin” as I made a small cut in the mouth of the frog to insert the tongue, but the idea seemed so much fun that I went for it. And no glue is used!
I will also teach a snail by Robert Lang shown in a previous entry of this blog.
Teaching is the best way to learn. Now I know these models inside out, by heart.
I used a simple owl model by Robert Neal. Diagrams for this owl are found in a book by Gay Merrill Gross called “Zoorigami. The background was made using photoshop and printing it out on the cards. The moon was colored by hand.
