The USS Sharkette

was built by Paul Csonka, Kseniya Charova, Cameron Schaeffer, Jane Huang, and me in April 2011. The photos here were taken by Paul Csonka and Lewis Hom.

The Sailboat Challenge

was a friendly challenge given to designers attending the 2006 Origami USA Convention in New York City. I’ve exhibited at the Origami USA Convention every time that I have attended, as well as participating in the Sailboat Challenge.

 

Here are some photos of it, including my sailboat (the one with little people in it) and those of other people attempting the challenge. The particularly epic sailboat with the kraken is by Brian Chan. All models are out of a single sheet.

Sailing on Lake St. Clair

is fun. We have two boats, a Thistle and a Laser. 

The first two images are of me – first sailing the Laser in to dock (although I’m on the wrong side of the boat), then skippering the Thistle (taken from within the Thistle). 

The second two show the Thistle from far away, and my brother sailing the Laser.
