If you look closely at this one, you'll see a familiar video game character. Can you see what it is? Photo: thiomor [Flickr]

I am awed at John McKeever's origami tessellations, some of which look straight out of an M.C. Escher artwork. It seems unbelievable, but the intricate paper sculptures are all made from a single sheet of paper.

See the whole photoset here: Link - Thanks Philip Chapman-Bell! (By the way, Philip himself is a master of origami whose work have been featured on Neatorama twice before)

Eric Gjerde has created Tess, a computer program that can make crease patterns for origami tessellations. It is a very cool tool that he generously shares for free here: http://www.papermosaics.co.uk/software.html
