Here are some folds I've created over the past few years. Having
started off favouring
complex work, I now try to create simple, elegant designs. Those who think
simple to create should have a go!
There is a fairly complete listing of diagrams I've
had published (excluding origami convention books, where there are simply too many
designs to list). Here are some photos of my designs that I've published in books.
I have several paper plane designs on the Guardian newspaper site. These include Triplane / Little Nicky / Space Shuttle / Hawkeye / Gomez / Locked / Delta / Needle
Click on the pic/title below to view diagrams. There's one vintage hand-drawn set (for the Cheshire Cat),
the rest are either GST Designworks, or the more recent ones are produced using Adobe Illustrator.
I freely admit to being rubbish at creating expressive hands for my diagrams. I'd dearly love to be able to produce hands like those drawn by Mugumi Biddle! However, kunz-meister Paulo Mulatinho kindly drew one or two for me and I've added them to the library of symbols I regularly use.
These designs are all copyrighted and I'll protect
The spirit of origami (as I
see it) is about sharing, but also about common courtesy, so please ask before
reproducing them in any format. If you see any of these for sale in an e-book,
please let me know. They are the curse of the creative world.
