Flock of Origami Seagulls...A 1980's flash back!
Or Origami Terns. Although I do think they look a little like Seagulls. The forked tail is the distinguishable characteristic in my opinion. I had this concept for a while, and then found a Lafosse version that looked better than the origami swallows I was trying to make work. the pattern is essentially the same, until the end. A simple fold and the tails look different...and , I believe, better this way. I n debated whether three birds was enough, but ultimately settled on five. I still might mess around with the placement to make them look a little more like they are in flight. We shall see.
In addition, the title brought back a moment from the '80's. And as this is New years eve, I thought that I might bring back the memories of 1982 with the Flock of seagulls...the group and their one hit wonder..." I ran" ( Ok, if you are a fan...perhaps you know more of their "hits" than I do...but this is the only one I ever heard them sing) Enjoy the video....and if you are younger than 30....perhaps you will like hearing a golden oldie that you may have never heard before.
