Down the Rabbit Hole

Origami really teaches you concentration, patience and controlling the urge to tear the paper to shreds. Over time, it has really become a way for me to channel stress and frustration into something productive. But this was not always the case. There was a time when it was me and the paper locked in a desperate battle and neither of us would come out entirely unscathed.

I once tried my hand at a Robert Lang model. Big mistake.
This bunny may look cute, but it was a nightmare to make. Too many tiny details and annoying folds. In the end, I think I failed quite miserably.

I had to fold a bunch of these simpler rabbit models to make me feel better about myself. One day, Robert Lang, one day...
