JulieAnne's Dragon

Greetings all, It's been quite awhile since the last update. I've been super busy working on new projects, work, my yoga... you name it. But I've finally found the time to sit down and complete the final touches on the Creating Origami blog which will serve as central location for all of the various posts, diagrams, updates etc around my origami work and related activities.

A Couple of Holiday Toots!

A couple of announcements for your post-turkey pre-holidaze preparations... The first is a very late announcement that "Tom Stamm's Origami Dragons" is finally available in book form. It contains Tom's original "Sea Serpent Dragon" model which was released in booklet form from OUSA way back in the day... but also contains several other of his dragons including his charming "Multi-Piece Sea Serpent" and a few others which have never been diagrammed before.

OUSA Annual Collections Paperbacks!

OUSA Origami Collection Covers

Secondly and probably most exciting is that the newly restored and updated versions of the entire 30 year history of the FOCA/OUSA Annual Collections are now available in the same beautiful paperbound versions that the past two years of the OUSA Origami Collection (2013/2014).

Mooser’s Train book!

Mooser's Train Cover

Inspired by the work I've been doing with OUSA with Pubs/Archival, I decided to create a special "extended" version of the Mooser's diagrams I did earlier this year for the 2013 Annual and put them in paperback form for the holiday season. I thought that they might be a fun gift this year to inspire that "special kid" in your life (even your inner kid ;-) Read more about Mooser’s Train book!

AWESOME Origami!

Hey All,

Just wanted to give you a heads up that my other book Awesome Origami VI and II is (are?) finally available as well. The book is quite cool in that every model in it has been designed by kids… or at least kids under the age of 18. Back in the “day” when I created it I was inspired by the idea of creating passion in young folders to design new models and for that reason pulled the designs from contributors to OUSA’s Origami By Children (OBC) program as well as students I’d taught as well.

Creating Origami LIVE!

Lost Diagrams Ready!

Hey all,

Again, I want to thank you for all the wonderful feedback that I've been getting from all over the world. I can't really tell you how much it means to me to be able to get a sense of how much joy this project is generating for people. Today I shipped 50 copies to a dealer in France and a teacher in Japan wants to use it as a text book for an upcoming course. It feels so good to know that all the attention and care I put into the project is really having an impact. Read more about Lost Diagrams Ready!

Kickstarter Live!

The Kickstarter campaign to raise money for the re-release of “Creating Origami” is live. I wanted to make it about three-weeks long as kickstarter recommended that shorter campaigns do better. So I checked the lunar calendar, occurrence of weekends, time differential in Munich and decided to have it end on the first Monday in June — right on the night of the full moon. Yeah, sorry, I live in California… I can’t help but have the culture rub off on me! Read more about Kickstarter Live!
