Thank you all for your help in getting the message to the guilty party.

He claims that he was hacked, I don't really buy that but oh well.
At least the stolen art has been removed.

I did receive an apology, most likely from all the pressure he received from all you to do so.

I just want to relay my gratitude to all you guys who went and fought for me, you guys are the best.

Many thanks,

Won Park
Unbelievable!... Thanks to the watchful eye of deviant member "enginemeister" I have been notified about a new deviant who is literally stealing other peoples artwork and is posting it as his own. This culprit's name is "princeoflosthearts" here is the link to his page princeoflosthearts.deviantart.…

Please help me out and go to his page and see if you recognize any of the artwork there and notify the original creators of the art, Besides mine of course. I have already reported all of my works.

Also get this, this guy has the audacity to offer prints FOR SALE. He is not only stealing the artwork from the original artists who worked hard on them, but is also trying to profit from them.
I want this guy banned from deviantart.
Can we all rally to do something about this!

Thank you for letting me rant, I will feel better when this guy is booted out here.

Hello,

Won Park here, There has been an email going around the internet and it says that I live in a Garbage Truck that has been converted in to an RV.

I find it very funny because I live in Honolulu, Hawaii.

I have a one bedroom Apt. I wish I could travel around in a RV and not pay rent. That would be fun.

Hello everyone,

First of all I would like to say "Thank you" for all your support.

Also I would like to give a "BIG THANK YOU" to my good friend Michael Sanders for putting together the video tutorial.

I finally have a video tutorial made. Before you can begin you will need a set of my Koi diagrams.

I would also like to say that if you are a beginner in Origami that this may be to hard for you. Start with something a little easier first.

In the tutorial I will teach you how to fold the "Koi" the way I fold it. I will not be following the diagrams normally, but you still need them for the beginning.

You can get a set of the diagrams here: www.origami-resource-center.co…

After you have the diagrams you can go to my friends blog site here for the tutorial.

Response to Copyright Infringement

Sat Jan 31, 2009, 5:11 PM
We did it!!!!

The Ipod app. has been taken down by Apple until the copyrights issue is resolved and proper credit and payment plans are established for the artists that are represented.

I cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for all of you who helped me and grieved for me in this matter. To everyone who sent an email thank you. As artists we all know what it feels like when someone or some entity steals our work. Our works of art that we spend countless hours on and to have it stolen is such a sickening feeling. Let's hope that this example show these people that we artist will not tolerate such infringements on our works of art.

Thank you all for your overwhelming support,

Won Park

ATTN: Copyright Infringement

Sat Jan 31, 2009, 1:21 AM
Deviant Artists, this is a call to arms!

I recently discovered a new iPhone app called "Dollar Origami", from the guys at NexStudios.jp, and I was surprised to find that a picture they were using to advertise their product was none other than my TIE fighter.  My TIE fighter, lifted directly from this Deviant account. I know, right? It gets worse. Not only did they steal my TIE, but they blatantly stole the diagrams AND picture for my Dollar Koi! I'm not the only one who has been wronged by these thieves. Included in this travesty are the original instructions from both Fumiaki Kawahata(yoda) and Charles Esseltine(tank). We weren't credited, acknowledged, or even mentioned. Now this might seem rather selfish of me, but if I could ask a favor of everyone. Please, send an e-mail to info@nexstudios.jp to let them know exactly what you think of their copyright infringement. Don't swear or be vulgar, please; I really want this to be professional. I fully intend to take this up with their lawyers, because I haven't been more enraged about the theft of my work before. I really appreciate your support, and I know that together we can do something about this.

Michael Lafosse is in Hawaii!

Sat Jan 24, 2009, 5:22 PM
Spending time with the Master

This past week I have been spending time with one of the great Origami masters of our time. His name is Michael Lafosse and in the Origami world he is considered one of the best. Michael is one of the very few Origami artists, if not the only one to make his own paper for folding Origami. He just recently opened his "Origamido" studio here in Hawaii for a limited stay with his partner Richard Alexander. The Original "Origamido" studio was opened in 1996 in Haverville MA.

Here is a link for more information:
www.origamido.com/who-we-are/i…

Michael and Richard make hand-made paper specifically for use in Origami. They have made paper for master Origami artists such as, Robert lang, Satoshi Kamiya, John Montroll, Brian Chan, and many,many more.

Here is some of his work,

Talking with Michael gave me a lot of insight in world of Origami. His years of experience with paper folding and paper making give him a unique advantage of knowing exactly what he needs to accomplish his goal. Knowing that I'm a dollar bill artist he gave a piece of red speckled paper that had very similar qualities to the dollar. I used that paper to fold him a Koi and it came out beautifully.

Tomorrow morning we will be going to have Dim-sum at a very famous Chinese restaurant here in Hawaii.

Also I told him about Deviantart and I think he's going to join our community. Is that not cool or what.

Just wanted to share the news,

Won Park

Serenity and Transformers costume.

Fri Oct 31, 2008, 5:11 PM
Happy Halloween

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to let everyone know that I haven't forgotten about Serenity. It's a very tricky model and I still need to work on it. I was recently featured on GIZMODO and now it seems I need to get into high gear. People are expecting to see it soon.

Also because of Halloween, which by the way if you haven't already guessed is my favorite holiday of the year. I am going to be wearing my girlfriend's Transformers Bumblebee costume this year.
I have modified and upgraded it to fit me better. Also the Costume has more added details than last years. Example, the left hand is not static anymore, it has moving fingers, also the cannon makes sound effects and lights up in the barrel.

I will take some pictures for you guys after Halloween.

Have fun and Happy Halloween!

Won Park
