New Rock N’ Roll Origami

As promised, I’ve been delving through the plethora of CD booklets I recently inherited, constructing more music-inspired origami.  I’ve found the most difficult part is finding enough booklets  similar enough conceptually and graphically to assemble an entire 24- or 30-unit piece.  Some of the cubes in particular become a mismatch of loosely associated bands, tied by concepts like make-up or big hair.  But they look great!   ^_^

It seems that as I’m sprting through the collection, many hard rock and heavy metal albums have longer than average CD booklets, so my work has gravitated in that direction due to availability of supplies.  The contrast and images on these cubes really make them stand out, and they (obviously) cast a whole different feel than some of the more colorful examples (like the Pink Floyd or Offspring pieces).

Luckily, I previously owned plus inherited several booklets from Offspring CDs, enough to make this spectacular icosahedron!  Folded from 30 pieces, using the traditional Sonobe design, this piece spans the history of the Offspring’s major releases, from Ignition to Splinter.  The vivid graphics common to Offspring albums are ideal for modular origami, and the rainbow of images has really made this one of my favorite pieces.

In contrast to the heavy metal cubes, I made this for Ramon, since he so graciously donated so much material to me!  Similar to the Offspring sphere, this cube features fthe booklets of four Clarks CDs, along with a scattering of images from Sugar Ray and Modest Mouse.  This piece was made by custom request, and if you have the books, I can make the art!  Or, if your favorite band is already represented here, be sure to pick it up in my Etsy shop before someone else does!
