We watched a fairly depressing live-action film at Anime society last night called Hana-bi (meaning ‘fireworks’), written, directed and acted in by the omni-skilled Takeshi Kitano. I won’t bore you with the details right now but sufficed to say it didn’t have the happiest of endings, but still, a brilliant film.
A little later on a few of us reconvened to practice the ancient art of origami (paper folding) and I got a few pics:

Of course, we couldn’t quite rival the proper Japanese origami masters who can make models like this in their sleep:
…now there’s skill.

how to fold a ” dragon “
Hmm, the dragon was made by a pro – no idea how he did it!!
These guys who make origamis must be very patients, i suppose…
That some complacated dragon, i made an ameture one n it luks more like a think chicken :S
who eva did tht man i wish i was u
Wow!!! Do you know or rather, do someone know where could I get the diagram for that dragon? I love its appearance!!!
dude that was awesome, could i get the instructions on that thing? XD
That man has incredible skill. It must have taken years of paperfolding to be skilled enough to make something like this.
Iam japanise and i love to fold origami

WOW thats soo cool!!! i mean i cant even fold a simple crain!
The expert is Joseph Wu – you can find his website here – http://www.origami.as/
Hi, could you tell me who the origsmi expert is who made the dragon, or could you tell me where I can find more pictures of this identical dragon.
Sweet… i don’t think there would be any instuctions for that because those diagrams were hard to come up with and i doubt that they would want to share the knowledge with you. but there is this one website that can show you…sorry it’s in pdf form…just google ‘dragon in flight’ and it’ll pop up. they have a youtube video for that too.
hey can you please teach me how to make the dradon. i love origami and love to learn more. someday i would LOVE to be an origami pro but i am far from that. please teach me i am a quick learner. Aliya
da? bys mi troche wzorów na sk?adanie np tego smoka lub cos innego?
can someone teach me? i need to know how to fold an origami heart with two birds sitting on top looking at each other. Can anyone help me?
oh using a dollar bill
The dragon, it’s modular. He probably used 30+ pieces of paper for that thing. Japanese people just fold randomly and then put it together. There is no diagram. Unless someone makes one.
cool dragoon.must be a pro
