It seems that almost every compilation book or convention pack I read has a diagram by Stephan Weber in it. This is his personal website, and there is a nice gallery of his work, from classic to recent.
Nicolas Terry's monster website has everything that a paper folder could wish for - lots of diagrams, galleries of work from a number of origami artists, and a link to his Origami Shop, an online resource where I buy a lot of my paper and books from.
Welcome to my Origami blog. Click here for site updates and for bits of random information from the world of origami.
Double tissue paper

I've discovered this rather useful video by Sara Adams on Youtube showing how to make Sirgo Paper / Double tissue paper. Where she uses the term 'plaster', I think she means wall-paper paste, although Methylcellulose would also be great to use.
Joseph Wu on ADHD, depression, origami creativity, and happiness

Here is a video from Creative Mornings Vancouver, showing a fascinating presentation by Joseph Wu. Here, he talks frankly and bravely about his mental health, and how he relates some of this thoughts to principles of paperfolding.
And as the end of the year approaches, I've posted another couple of my models in the Mammals and Birds gallery. One is a mammal, one is a bird. The chicken model was designed in Spain, and is derived from a fish base. The Japanese dog model is folded from a complex base, and is one of the most tricky models I've yet devised.
Congratulations to my mother, and to Mr Clive England, who got married on the 4th October. As part of the wedding decorations, I designed and folded 80 or so 'twirl stars', a simple decoration based on a traditional bird base. I've created diagrams for this, which may be found here.
