I put together some photos of my origami work and I thought I'd share it here. It includes some information about my mental illness and how I use paper folding to manage it. I hope you enjoy it.

Very nice! When my girlfriend of four years left me I was thinking about taking up smoking but instead started doing Origami. Way cheaper and healthier and a lot more interesting. I'm happy to see that you also get a lot of good from it. Especially the tiniest ones are also rather impressive.

Wow, that is impressively tiny origami! I also love the geometric ones. I'd love to get back into origami - most of my grad work was spent dissecting animals the size of a grain of rice, and I love fine motor skill requiring projects.

Impressive work, Cleverbeans! FWIW, I've folded quite a few flapping birds over the decades, but never any that tiny. (But I do have a cellophane one on my desk that I folded about 20 years ago).
That's beautiful work Cleverbeans, thanks for sharing it. It's interesting... I also have a GAD diagnosis, and independently hit on origami to manage my anxiety, I find it works very well for me. I'm folding a lot of butterflies just at the moment.

We should start a chain origami-er gang, hanging out behind dumpsters showing off art
