Tree Elf | I discovered this little tree elf today when creating the post-it-doodle-a-day. He just emerged in a shy friendly way. There may be a story here. He has been playing in my head most of the day.

Origami and Charcoal #002

Folding paper with dirty hands is so much fun. I am sure this is going to be a thing with me. There are several ways that I am considering exploring this process.

Notice that the background has smudges. I did my folding with two pieces of paper. One to fold and one on the table. In the process of folding the paper on the table became smudged. It looks more like a drawing when the two pieces of paper are photographed together.

Doodle Process

Here is a glimpse into the process of creating Post-it-doodle-a-day from 5 February thru 8 May 2016. These doodles were created digitally with an app called ProCreate on an iPad with the Apple Pencil. The process videos are built into the program. It is a long video but I think you will find it interesting if you have been following the daily doodles. Enjoy!

Pleated Round Box

Pleated box from BYU-Idaho Art Dept on Vimeo.

I have Complete Pleats written by Paul Jackson. On page 159 there is a beautiful round pleated box designed by Philip Campbel-Bell. I have tried to make it before and thought I would give it another try. To my surprise it worked out beautifully.

Dirty Hands  


Dirty Hands from BYU-Idaho Art Dept on Vimeo.

I read once on an origami page to always wash your hands. Then this morning as I was considering what to fold it occurred to me that dirty hands might just make folding more visual.

Boths sides of the paper turned out very different. I enjoyed discovering that dome areas on the back of the paper stayed completely clean throughout the process.

Baby Beaver

I am just learning how to connect images from my Instagram account into my blog. Now that I know how to embed images from Instagram how should I use it? I think it would be a good idea to select one or two images each week to connect my blog readers to my Instagram feed. What do you think?

I had no idea what I was going to draw when I started this image. When the big teeth appeared I knew that it would be a beaver. It was holding a pencil through one of the fazes.

Folding pleats are wonderful to experiment with.
