I was browsing through Eric Joisel's website, when I came upon theis amazing rhinoceros.

Does anyone have information, such as a crease pattern for it?

Yes I agree that this rhino is amazing, Joisel seems to sculpt rather than fold. People have paid money for his work.

I think Joisel planned on publishing a book. This would be a great addition to anybody’s library. Hopefully the rhino will be in that

Of the diagrams amiable I absolutely love Joisel's rat at http://www.pajarita.org/aep/internacion ... ern3-3.pdf
And his cockerel is also amazing. His mask booklet is great for mask technique, but I think its Josiel’s style that radiates from his work and makes it so incredible

The British Origami Society published a booklet with one of his masks a couple of years back. Well work trying to get hold of.

If ever you get the opportunity to see him teach, go for it. He's madder than a box of frogs, but a superb designer.

You'll be surprised just how simple his work really is. At a BOS conference, he told us the theory behind his Pangolin model in about 20 minutes...

As far as I know, the Joisel mask book is out of print; no ideas if it'll be reprinted anytime in the future.

From a technical viewpoint, his mask technique isn't terribly complex - just a handful of creases to form the eyes, nose and mouth. However, it takes a tremendous amount of practice to be able to get everything 'just right'. There's no landmarks, so you're going to have to gauge for yourself where you think the various features of the face should be. And even so, 99% of the time, you'll end up with something that looks just slightly off, in an undefinable sort of way.

Since we are basically on this topic and I didn't want to start a new one:
I've heard that Josiel's cockerel model is diagramed in "BOS Magazine 202 June 2000 ". Does anyone know where to find this book? I couldn't find it on the BOS site. Please don't tell me its out of print! [-o<

If you're a member of the BOS, you can order back copies, or some from the library to borrow.

The rooster is a lot more simple than it looks. It is basically a bird base, with one flap for the tail, one for the head and two for the legs. The centre of the bird base becomes the wings, body, etc. To create the detail, the four edges have been folded in to create four preliminary bases at the corner, before the bird base is folded. These bases are shaped to form toes, frills, etc.

Regarding the masks - The booklet shows one such mask. He has several other staple designs, with which he creates faces. One of which was from a water-bomb base, using the centre to form a nose. I havent seen this one diagrammed anywhere. However, it was taught at a BOS convention a few years back.

It takes away a lot of the magic to know this beforehand, but the rooster is made from a blintzed frog base with a border graft.

It is such a brilliant model.

It does? :roll:

The real magic lies in being able to turn such a simple base into something truly impressive.
