Today we've added an origami doodle to the fold in a tribute to Akira Yoshizawa, considered the father of the modern origami art form. Yoshizawa pioneered many of the artistic techniques used by modern-day origami artists, most notably the technique of wet-folding, which created soft curves, gentle shapes and rounded, organic forms. He also developed a notation for origami that has been the standard for origami instruction for more than 50 years.

Our doodle was folded by origami artist Robert J. Lang, who wrote about Yoshizawa and the process of creating the doodle on our blog. He also provided patterns for each of the letters, so you can try to create your own origami doodle at home: http://goo.gl/5vVrc
