Oh, Spanish Ewes

French, actually, but the pun wouldn’t have worked. I saw this at the Exposition of Paper-folding History at El Escorial, set in a fabulous lower room of the ancient building. There was a lot of quality work I was familiar with, but the name of Victor Coeujolie was new to me. For more of his work, check out his (short) page on CRIMP and (thanks Francesco) his FlickR page.

He had made several amazing designs, including this sheep. Some unkind person suggested it could be the wig for a model of myself. As a member of CRIMP, the influences are clear, but he’s applying them to animate subjects to great effect! I’m sure we will see more stunning work from him in the future.
