Rob is an American origami artist who started designing his own models in 2015. His original origami designs have been published in OrigamiUSA's The Paper and The Fold, the British Origami Society (BOS) magazine, and the OrigamiUSA Origami Collection books. He has also contributed designs to a number of Nick Robinson's books. Rob creates models in the representational style, primarily designing animals, and he’s inspired by the natural world, as well as by depictions of animals in the art of children’s literature, cartoons, and tangrams. You can follow his work on Instagram @robsnyderorigami

Paper needed: A square of paper, at least 15 cm (6 inches). Almost any square of paper will work, though something thicker than standard kami will hold the final shape better. Rob usually folds this model from kraft, Tant, or Canson Mi-Teintes watercolor paper (the models pictured are from kraft and Canson).

Origami Connect (OrigamiUSA’s online classes) is pleased to share this with you free of charge. We also plan to have a full summer session of Origami Connect. Details will be shared soon on our website.
