Welcome to another edition of This Week in Origami where we feature the most awesome new origami that I saw uploaded to the Internet over the last week.  The most recent issue of the Japanese Origami Tanteidan magazine came out recently and featured instructions for Satoshi Kamiya’s Japanese White-Eye bird model.  Lots of people have been folding this model and I saw it several times this week.

Firstly though we have a couple of awesome looking animals by Shuki Kato.  He designed a new giraffe for 2015 and further perfected his bison model.
