After several weeks of searching I finally managed to get in touch with Takayuki Hori the creator of the Oritsunagumono endangered animal origami collection that I posted here a while back.

If you’re in LA you can see Tim in his show ManCamp at the Improv Space, or you can catch him in the upcoming comedy series Veep which was just picked up by a little network called HBO. He also plays a great Abraham Lincoln. Is there anything this man can’t do? And what strategically placed artwork he hangs on his wall.
