There’s a good reason why I don’t donate to most charities. I don’t approve of how they spend some, if not a good portion, of they money they receive for donations. Exorbitant salaries, luxurious overhead and trips, celebration parties among other parties, etc. You might call me judgmental for it, and I’d come back at you with You’re damn right, I am! And count yourself lucky if I don’t throw some expletives at you to adequately describe how I feel.
This is a center spread for a sketchbook where I combined origami (Japanese paper folding) and drawing (to lay down water coloured pencils) into an art piece. I’m not really good at either origami or drawing, so I made the best of what I had to combine the two into something which’s total was greater than the sum of its parts. It also meets my mandate for origami considering “what will I bring to the game”, with the answer being a “replicable originality”, or new twists to traditional or common origami that others can try or create their own variations.
