Feeling Educated

I noticed yesterday that its been an entire two months since the last time that I've designed anything. For me, thats got to be a record. I've been spending all my time lately running (5th in my region for track and field, alternate for provincials), watching the world cup and finishing up my last year of high school with my last exams. After yesterday, I'm finally done so I decided to celebrate by folding. The fish base challenge on the french origami forum caught my eye, so I decided to see what I could do. Heres what I ended up with:
Snail 2, Ryan MacDonell
A nice simple snail, my second snail in fact. The idea for the snail took only seconds to make, but then I spent hours trying to figure out what to do with the shell. I'm happy with what I ended up with, although I wish that there was slightly more emphasis on the spiral.
Now that I have the summer ahead of me, I decided to try diagramming again. I've had some ideas for my Loon for a while now, and I recently refolded my Rat 2 which I think will now diagram nicely. Lets hope it works out!
