I know artists aren't magicians, but sometimes it really does seem as though there's magic at work. For instance, origami. How can a single piece of uncut piece of paper be turned into so many amazingly complicated things? I don't know. But check it out:

Rattlesnake, opus 539

Organist, opus 363

For more origami magic, Brian Chan has a fun video of him folding Wall*E. I loved Brian's Kraken.

If you'd like to try to fold your own origami, visit for models and for info on how to make folds, visit Fishgoth's Origami basics.
