I had a couple of designs included in the latest NOA (Nipponese Origami Association) magazine #530 – a “Witch on a Broomstick” and “Cheshire Cat”. The latter won a prize in the International Alice in Wonderland Origami competition, run by the BOS in 1992. It’s certainly in a style I haven’t explored for decades.
Working in a school, I cut lots of A4 sheets down to squares and have started to diagram some of the models I’ve devised during idle moments using the leftover strip (rather than waste them!) Here’s the first, an interlocking flower. It should work with US rectangles as well and you can use up to a 2×1 rectangle.
A design from ’86, drawn by hand – I was so pleased when PCs were invented 😉
Thanks to my daughter Daisy, I had a design for a simple cat’s head published in “the Scratching Post” – the magazine of the North Sheffield branch of the Cats Protection organisation 😉
I had a car repair done by the wonderful Derbyshire Lane Service Station, complete in 20 minutes & dirt cheap, so I made them a Max Hulme bugatti by way of thanks 😉

This design was created for a competition at the BOS 50th Anniversary Convention. The original stopped at step 6, but I think the result is more aesthetically pleasing with a few extra folds. Thanks to Edwin Corrie for the very final fold! Deciding when any further steps will detract from the result is always the hardest call for me.
Elephant Hide is a range of paper much sought-after by artistic folders. Thankfully, it’s not made from elephants! Here is the crease pattern for a dish of mine (“Paulo’s dish”) made from the lovely orange variety sold by Color Tree and the resulting model. Can you work it out?
