Eugene’s Origami Crane

Origami Crane

My eldest son, Eugene, loves the outdoors like all of us, swims better than the rest of us, and he skates, surfs, sandboards as well as collects fingerboards. He is my more creative boy. He went to the Ilocos Norte National High School Special Program in the Arts and majored in Media Arts in high school. Right now, he is in the third year of his Computer Science bachelor course at the Mariano Marcos State University.  So uniquely him — he  is not scared to wear pink shirts and pastel trousers, he eats only certain foods, and since childhood, he has nurtured a flair for the Japanese art of paper folding called origami. It must be my old collection of DIY books neatly tucked in a book storage beside the kids’ room door that helped rear his creative side.

I unwittingly discovered his talent while at an Asian gathering at the Los Angeles City Hall gardens during an LA trip. All the time he was nowhere to be found,  he was at a Japaneses booth showing off to the Japanese ladies his folding techniques. We got complimented for his little origami show of wildlife and UFOs. A proud mom moment:)

Origami 8 Books In One

Found the Everything Origami book at National Bookstore. I bought it as a present for a godchild in hopes she will like the fascinating Japanese art from the 17th century.

Likewise available at National Bookstore, Über Origami: Every Origami Project Ever!, an instructional origami book that lives up to its title, with new never been seen designs.
