"Study break"

Birthday present for a friend, who drowns in study work and can hardly make time for a relaxing cup of tea. Hopefully the Japanese tea set that went along with it can help.

A bit smaller than 30x20cm. The frame is one piece cut out of dense cork. (References for foreground and background were used, see thread.)

This is an model I've been working on recently.

It was intended to be a human. However, the model decided to rather become a goblin. We are both fine with this development.

More in the thread.

Needless to say this wasn't the first time and the webcomic will probably never happen.

Here's my fist bump to all of those who keep trying, striving for the best that one has within, and to keep fighting even if there are disadvantages.

Keep going, we don't know what will we face in the future, but there are endless possibilities 🔥

The whole channel is pretty crazy. This is Lego-blasphemy, but so beautiful and clever, I'm sold.

Happy #MakeMusicDay / #WorldMusicDay!

Do any #MusicMakers have anything planned, or simply some music to promote?

Maybe you fancy having a go at a #MastoRemix (or have some some source material)?

No need for polish, just have fun! Check my silly go at a @MalteHollmann's #SixtySecondsSounds piece at where we discussed the idea.

Whatever it is, I'd love to see my timeline filled with great #music today ! 🔈 🎶


#MusicProduction #music #MastoMusicMakers

Our timeline is filled with people celebrating that #adobe plans to offer a freemium version of #Photoshop for the browser.

Just in case you didn't know:
#GIMP, #Krita @krita, #Inkscape @inkscape, #Scribus and many other great graphics tools are already available - free/libre to use, free to improve, free to share. Check them out! 💙

That's one way to see plastic arts nowadays ;)

Here are video instructions for folding the Mermaid by Sakurai Ryosuke.

This was surprisingly hard to find. Happy folding!

@joel I can also recommend the Rabbit by Jun Maekawa.

It's a popular model afaict. It felt very origami when folding. :)

The internet has instructions abound, for example here:

I can recommend the whole book the model is from! Feels less like a book of instructions and more like a text book that teaches origami theory and practise. :)


Some for !

Model "Mermaid" by Sakurai Ryosuke.

Folded together with a nephew excited about origami, which was a lot of fun. :)

More info on the model:

Folded from two sheets (2:2 and 1:2) coloured on only one side. Instructions in the book Origami Planet. About 60 steps, excluding symmetrical repetition.

This wasn't the easiest model, but also not the hardest. The instructions are clear and have a great quality IMHO.
