Continuing with my resolution to fold and photograph at least one piece of origami a day during World Origami Days, here is a dragon I designed and folded:

I survived boring management meetings by folding peace cranes. Sometimes secretely, often openly as I was involved in a peace crane project. Have often wanted to do a dragon, but not a top priority. Thank you for this.
I hope you go ahead and fold a dragon someday! There are some nice dragon variations made from the same base as the peace crane.
Great going! Also… I liked the sketch of the Gloucester City Hall bell tower. And thanks for tagging each image, your desk seemed pretty interesting 🙂 Maybe in your leisure, you could post some sketches… or drawings out of the blue…. Have you tried out the iSketch on the iPad? And from where did you get the Desert Roses?
Thanks! Maybe I will post some of my sketches eventually. I don’t really have many, because my free time is mostly taken up with photography and origami. I got the mineral roses from the Sterling Hill Mine in New Jersey. It’s an amazing place to visit! They have a fantastic collection of minerals, have a really neat tour of the old mine, and they sell some mineral samples at good prices. And it’s a short drive from there to the Franklin Mineral Museum, equally worthwhile.
My adult son loves dragons. Do you find instructions somewhere or design them all yourself?
I have invented four different origami dragons, as well as a variation on one by Robert Neale (the one that uses the simple bird base). There are diagrams on the internet for some dragons, and lots in books too. Dragons are a popular theme for origami artists!
