"Eyeball" series

Starting out, I did not intend this to be a self-portrait. But I'm told now that this is not a conclusion I can exactly avoid....

You be the judge.

Anyway. So, I figured out how to do eyeballs properly from origami, and now am going crazy putting eyes on everything.

Note the magnets--the lozenge-shaped thingies. I use those on the 3D surface in places where clips can't reach, to hold layers together as the misted paper dries. (The paper is pre-treated with methyl cellulose and a light ink rub, so it stiffens up nicely.) --Anybody else do this?

the first chameleon I've ever seen in the wild in Beersheva, I saw this morning climbing the Etrog tree in my garden

a healthy young specimen---

naturally I confronted him with an unfair comparison

he was utterly speechless
