★ Origamic Architecture Instructions & Free Kirigami Templates ★ Architectural origami is the art of paper cutting to create 3D buildings – from just one sheet of paper! The designs range from the simple to the exceptionally intricate, and the subject matter can be anything from a whole city to a famous landmark or even your own house. This page will focus on 90° pop-up buildings and detailed shapes, where the 3D design emerges and is fully visible when the paper is folded to an angle of 90 degrees. That means that this technique is well suited to making impressive pop-up cards as well – although you won’t be mass producing these for all your colleagues at Christmas (unless you start in January!) Below you will find inspirational examples of origami artist’s work, advice for creating your own artwork, plus free online downloads.

He has lived his childhood in the 80′s so we have the same skate graphic inspirations and references. For me it’s a kinda fresh Jim Phillips with a creepy twist! 14 Useful Sites on Paper Folding Instructions and Origami Tutorials Origami is the art of paper folding which originated in Japan in the 17th century. It is now very popular even outside Japan. The term comes from the Japanese word ori meaning “folding” and gami (kami) meaning “paper.” There is a rich connection between origami and mathematics (read Origamics: Mathematical Explorations Through Paper Folding ).
Producing Polar Panoramas This tutorial describes a fun and challenging project for intermediate to advanced Photoshop users, and is not for beginners. Some of the steps below require the creative use of your own Photoshop skills. The steps below show how a Polar Panorama is created. A Polar Panorama can make a 360° view appear to be a separate planet as shown below, or could be created with the sky as the center of the image as shown at the bottom of this page. A Polar Panorama makes a terrific print at any standard dimensions, and avoids the problem of printing and framing long, thin panoramas.
Show & Tell Gallery Cooper Cole Vanessa Maltese April 10 - May 10, 2014 Polyhedra Origami (from one sheet) This page is dedicated to origami polyhedra - paper polyhedron models made from a single sheet of paper. These include 3D geometric shapes such as cubes, tetrahedrons, pyramids and more. Polyhedra made with a single sheet of paper is somewhat more rare and difficult to fold; most are the crease-and-collapse type. In contrast, origami polyhedra made using many sheets of paper is quite abundant. Click here to read about modular origami and here to get free diagrams. Diagrams for Single-Sheet Polyhedra
Metalcore History Precursors  It was a very mixed reaction. Editors' Blog Returning to the New York charity circuit less than a week after the New York collections have ended can feel a bit like returning to school’s varsity sport after just barely surviving pre-season training. Are you ready for your first match? The New Yorkers for Children fall gala Tuesday night was the first in many games to be played this season and a large roster showed up at Cipriani 42nd Street for the event, sponsored by CIRCA and St. John. Modular Origami: How to Make a Cube, Octahedron & Icosahedron from Sonobe Units Modular Origami: How to Make a Cube, Octahedron & Icosahedron from Sonobe Units Modular origami is a technique that can be used to build some pretty interesting and impressive models of mathematical objects. In modular origami, you combine multiple units folded from single pieces of paper into more complicated forms. The Sonobe unit is a simple example unit from modular origami that is both easy to fold and compatible for constructing a large variety of models.
Russ Abbott: Ornamental Archive Book Project By Russ Abbott The first time I can remember drawing an ornamental frame was for a tattoo design. It was a large, realistic rendering of a Merchant Marine ship. My client wanted the tattoo in memory of his Grandfather. We discussed the options and eventually decided on a reference image for the ship The tattoo would span the entire length of his shin and I would need to invent a way to create a border for the piece. I had recently picked up a vintage oval mirror with intricately carved ornaments on the frame and as I was trying to think of a great concept for the client, my eyes settled on the ornamental mirror and I instantly knew what to do.
How to Cut Intricate Patterns in Paper Paper cutting is either done with a craft knife or scissors. Where an intricate pattern is cut out of a flat piece of paper, a craft knife is usually used, but where the paper is folded, small sharp scissors are used instead. Paper cutting most likely originated in China, and Chinese paper cuts are flat (i.e. there is no folding) and are often done in red paper. Japanese paper cutting is called kiri-e, and kirigami is the application of kiri-e to origami i.e. it combines folding with the paper cutting. Kirigami is where cuts are made on a folded base and this often produces a symmetrical pattern as a result.
An Abrupt End: Explosive High-Speed Photos by James Huse Over the past few months I’ve encountered a fair share of high-speed exploding balloon photos, some of which have found their way onto Colossal including the work of Edward Horsford and recently Ryan Taylor. However these magnificent captures by designer James Huse are something wholly different. The surface of these inverted balloon photos flare and whorl like solar flares on the Sun, and yet simultaneously appear cold and frozen, perhaps the result of Huse’s decision to use milk-filled balloons. The project, entitled An Abrupt End was completed as part of his final year at Kingston Upon Thames where he’s studying graphic design and photography. The rest of his work is also impeccable and snagged him a Best New Blood award at the 2011 D&AD Awards. Somebody should hire this guy and pay him lots and lots of money.
Gelli Printing with DIY Layered Texture Plates You can make texture plates to match the size of your Gelli plate, or make smaller plates that can be used as stamps. This technique is especially fun for making custom texture plates designed speciﬁcally for your Round Gelli Plate. Texture plates can be made from many different materials. The material used in the video is...heavyweight fusible stabilizer. It's perfect for making quick layered texture plates that are ready to use right away.I use Peltex 71F (by Pellon) — a heavyweight stabilizer with fusible adhesive on one side. It's a stiff non-woven polyester material about 1/16" thick.
