Thoughts about the Novacon Art Show [Apr. 14th, 2007|05:02 pm]
Douglas Spencer
Prompted by someone else posting pictures of her artwork, and having been thereby reminded that she was in the art show last year, I've been thinking.

I've done origami workshops at conventions before. In fact I'm down to do one at Year of the Teledu. I restocked on paper at the Japanese Shop in Chester during Eastercon, and I've been folding again.

Those models are all folded from squares about two inches on a side, which means they're mostly between a quarter and a half an inch across (say six to twelve mm in the new money).

Questions: Is it worth me putting something together for the Novacon art show? Is it at all likely that anyone would want to bid, on something that I'd routinely give away free in the bar anyway? Should I attempt something particularly complex for the show?

Wow! Those must make you so popular in bars!

Well, in bars (usually at conventions) they're made with flyers for other conventions, so they aren't as small as these ... and they're not that special Origami paper which tends to be plain on one side and patterned on the other, so you can't do clever things juxtaposing the two colours like I've done with the black-and-white fancy box in the centre of the photo, or with the mouth of the fish.

If they were always as good-looking as these, I'd do better.
