Nature's Rancher

My dear friend and owner of Stolz-Mead Global Advertising Agency David Stolz kindly offered me a couple of spots on the web site of his recent venture called, "Nature's Rancher". He started this new line of organic meat products a year or so ago and he is doing really well with this brand. His products are sold at Whole Foods all over the US and Canada. I recorded a couple of short videos of me making paper animals from my book "Kirigami Menagerie" and uploaded them for kids to see so that they can learn how to make paper craft projects (after they eat delicious meat products of Nature's Rancher, of course). When you click on the menu that says, "Kidz Zone", you get a video on how to make a cow, and when you click on menu that says ,"Pork", you get to see me make a piglet.


Kirigami Animals review video

I came across this You Tube video someone posted reviewing my Kirigami Animal kit.

I appreciate that this boy did a really good job making the animals following the instructions. Here is the link.



Kirigami Animal kit available!

My publisher Sterling recently released a new edition of Kirigami Animal kit based on my book Kirigami Menagerie. It is an exclusive edition only sold at Barnes and Noble book stores and their online store. Here is the link. This kit includes the book Kirigami Menagerie, pre-cut templates of all 38 animals and one almost completed giraffe. For some strange reason the price of the kit is less than the price of the book...


A new book of paper animal sculptures out!

I have recently published a book of paper animal sculptures. Each of these animals was designed to be constructed, without the use of glue or adhesive tape, out of one continuous sheet of paper (except for the large ones like elephants and alligator, they simply didn't fit in single pages and I had to design them in sections). You copy the template on a sheet of card stock paper (there are many colors and textures available at craft stores), score the folding lines, cut the templates out and turn them into 3-D sculptures. Kirigami is a combination of 2 Japanese words "kiri" (cutting) and "kami" (paper). My designs are a kind of hybrid kirigami that involves a lot of origami techniques.
The whimsical limericks on the photograph pages were written by Erik Johnson.
The book is available through Amazon, Barnes And Noble and through the website of my publisher Lark Books.
