So wait, does that mean that by extension God is the best at origami? :D

Also, first post in a while, yay! Feel like I've been away for years.... oh, wait..... :shock:

@ origamigeek and his comment on the last post by harpseal:
actually he (harpseal) means "jozsef zsebe" and not master wu - about whom you've probably thought. jozsef is not that famous but a very kind and skilled folder with - in my eyes - a quite unique style of folding. i once met him at a convention at dresden city - my very first one at all - and it was really fun to fold with him.
if you're going to visit my little flickr_gallery, please leave a comment - a critical one is welcome, too, if necessary: http://www.flickr.com/photos/57625237@N02/

I have decided that joszeph zsebe is now my second favourite origamist (2nd to Robert Lang)

Like akugami said, he has a very unique style, which is very sleek and does unnatural things with the paper that looks more like he's carved it rather than folded.

Unnatural? sleek and clean - yes, unnatural - no. They are elegant and uncluttered. It's almost as if he's applied fen shui to his designs.

Are you saying something about my folds? :)
gecko_vn seems to have folded the ancient dragon better than satoshi did.

Which of those things has he invented himself? To be anywhere near best or good, he's got to be as good at inventing as he is copying or following.

You mean Le Tuan? He created the Slardar and the Guardian, and he has a werewolf published in 50hrs+.
