Origami Camel by mobii
$3.07


I wanted to try and do another Origami instruction shirt. After seeing a penguin in the palm of a hand done by Mui-Ling, We noticed that the little impressions on the hand looked like waves of snow or sand. We already had a penguin for the snow, and the first thing that came to mind was a camel for the sand. The camel is a bit harder than the penguin, so I can’t wait to see how small Mui-Ling can make one. Have fun.

    That’s so cool.

  • Thanks so much InkRain. I am trying to think of a way to spice them up a bit though. They are so plain. But I haven’t come up with anything that won’t obscure the actual instructions. Any ideas?

    Is there anything you could do with “transparent” hands? Alternately, possibly just a red line , with or without an arrow on the end, dropped behind each row? Or could be one long swoopy line that doubles back and ends at the final camel, with maybe a hollow circle shape behind the camel. In any case, it’s a very good-looking shirt.

  • Susan! Those are both great ideas. I really like the hands idea. Maybe if I take the opacity down to about 50 or something, they will still be seen, but not interfere with the instructions. That’s so cool, thanks! See? This is why the bubble rocks!

    Glad to contribute to the process. I have been wondering if there’s a work in progress group here – that might be helpful for people if not. New eyes always see different things.

    I’m up for the challenge ;)

    Things are just busy at the moment. Thanks for linking me by the way, though people may not be able to find my penguin origami right away, hence they will not really know what you are refering to so I’ll provide a quick link to the image below; hope you don’t mind…

  • Of course I don’t mind. Link a away…

    How is this mobii?

    I actually did this quite a while back but I wanted to try a smaller one. Unfortunately things are getting really busy now and I don’t know if I have the chance to try out a smaller one anytime soon so I’ve uploaded this to my bubble for now,

  • WOW! That’s fantastic Mui-Ling. Sitting on your hand ,makes him look like he is trodding the desert sands. How many mm is he?

    I’ve answered that in the description of the artwork.

  • Yeah, I found it. I missed it the first time. I am getting old I think. Haaa!
