Overall Impression

buy from origam-shop.com

Katsuhisa Yamada has a unique style. His models tend to be very angular, and sometimes look a little unrefined. Still, his creations have this certain "cuteness" that has some appeal. They all start from the traditional bird-base, manipulated in strange and original ways to create all flaps needed.
