Hey, I'm an origami artist from Germany. I started to fold origami about 14 years ago. Over time I developed my first own models (simple boxes and stars). I joined the virtual origami community on flickr 2008 and tried to create more unique models since then. Today, I fold almost exclusively my own models, which can be seen on my blog or on flickr and also here on DeviantArt. Since 2010 I'm also a member of "Origami Deutschland E.V." (the German Origami Association) and a small group of folders in Frankfurt who meet sometimes just for the fun of folding.
It has been quite a while since my last journal entry but here is something that I just had to post about:

You do not know how to fold you say?...Well this challenge is here to encourage people who haven't done Origami before to try it out.
But it's not just for beginners!You can also participate if you're an experienced origami folder and get creative and have fun.
The challenge is hosted by the lovely synconi who will also give away prices to the winners.So head over to her side for more details:

Looking at the description of the the model it was clear that the person isn't even aware that the Ryu Zin is folded from only one sheet of paper. Besides stealing pictures from Kamiya, he also took most of Won Park's amazing money origami models and posted them as his own (Here is Won Park's Journal
I'm back from the anual German Origami Convention. The journey to Salem, the city were the convention was held took over seven hours with the car. I went there with a couple of friends from Frankfurt (all are Origami folders).
The first evening wasn't that eventful at all. We assembled our exhibition models and went to bed. The Second day was full of different possibilities which whom we could fill the day. There were workshops provided by other folders, several hours of "free folding" and of course breaks. There were also two paper shops, where you could buy a range of different papers, books and folding tools, a heaven for folders so to s
Deine Werke sind echt beeindruckend! Mich wundert nur, dass einige deiner neueren Arbeiten nicht in der Kategorie Featured zu finden sind. Ich weiß aber natürlich auch nicht, nach welchen Kriterien du da gehst. Ich fand die Reihe mit den menschlichen Gesichtern und den kleinen Osterhasen jedenfalls besonderer Aufmerksamkeit wert.
Bleib gesund und munter und weiterhin viel künstlerischen Erfolg!
