The days from October 24 to November 11 are World Origami Days (WOD)! I don’t know who made that decision, but I’m good with it.
I don’t have much time to fold nowadays, but I love doing it. Maybe I’d have more time for origami if I weren’t hooked on “4 Elements”, a great iPad game by Playrix… and before that, “The Rise of Atlantis”, which is like Bejeweled on steroids. I got both games for free on Free App a Day, a dangerous website if there ever was one. It should be illegal to give away addictive video games when people have work to do!
Anyway, my resolution for WOD is to fold at least one model a day. Here’s the first – a lobster, from Montroll and Lang’s book “Origami Under the Sea“:
Folded from one uncut square of foil paper. I decided to make it blue, because blue lobsters are rare, and blue origami lobsters are even rarer. For the following days, I hope to fold mostly my own designs. However, since I arrived to Gloucester where fish and lobster are such a part of the economy and culture, I wanted to start with this leggy little critter!
Happy World Origami Days!
