Hoopoe, by Andrew Hudson

Hoopoe, by Andrew Hudson, originally uploaded by Origami Weekly.

It's week 25, and we're doing good-- Now that the spring semester is over, I have some time to do side projects, on top of Origami Weekly. This week's model is the result of a study in imitation, based on the work of Hideo Komatsu, which I've been folding a lot for the past two weeks. It's nonaxial, yet still falls easily on a grid, and the form of the base renders most shaping unnecessary. This model also utilizes color-changes, and is quite foldable from commercial origami paper.

Nonagon Radial, by Andrew Hudson

Week 23, and I've been working on a big project-- designing and diagramming this model. While I did the last couple pages of diagramming a little hastily to get it out on time, I still think this is one of my best posts to date, and i hope you enjoy folding it as much as I did!

Some advice-- fold especially accurately for this piece. It's got some strange symmetry, so make sure what you're doing checks out with what the diagram says to.
