Everything started when I decided to publish my book in 2017…
Soon after I published “Origami Journey”, I was asked to draw diagrams for a new book by David Gachepaper. After one year of intense work the book “Shaping Paper” was published through KDP platform (Print on Demand service provided by Amazon) in November 2019. The work on this book was challenging as David’s models are very different from mine, they are quite opposite to what one would call geometric. As the title of the book expresses, it’s more about shaping paper than about making sharp creases which are the main “tool” of traditional origami.
If you are interested in learning more about less traditional techniques of working with paper close related to folding, this might be a book for you. David also explains how he treat the paper before and after folding to obtain more artistic results. And there is a big gallery of his models in last chapter of the book.
Origami Modulars for Everybody
PCOC Origami Collection 2021
A Diagram Collection that I prepared for Pacific Coast Origami Conference. It’s a collection of more than 50 models by different origami designers. I helped with preparation of all diagrams, made layout for the book, designed its cover and put everything together.
I met Ekaterina Lukasheva during Italian origami convention several years ago. She is a well known origami designer creating various geometrical models. She was first known for her kusudama models (3D ornamental modular spheres), she published handful of books about modular origami and have a webpage dedicated to her models. She became even more famous when she started playing with curved origami. Her Instagram account is full of such mesmerizing models. When she was searching for somebody to help with the diagrams for her new book about curved origami, we got in touch thanks to Melissa Mo (with whom we worked together on PCOC collection :).
The work on this book was interesting and challenging as we had to find the ways to visually differentiate between different tools/actions in instructions – drawing with pencil, scoring with scoring tool, traditional folding and cutting. It also helps when you see all the interest people pour into the subject. We made a book in around half year from the beginning till publishing it in November 2021.
