I’m a proud Momma


My son Ty has been published again. Last year he was hired by Time Out Chicago to design an origami cocktail ring from a ten dollar bill for the cover of their issue on cheap deals in the city. Last month they contacted him to do a feature in their kids issue.

Over the last couple years Ty has gotten several jobs designing origami models for ad agencies, so in addition to the article the Time Out editors asked him if he could make two models to coincide with local museum exhibits. You can see the article and photos of some of his origami here.

    I know you have a very talented daughter too. Are there other Perez children who are following in the footsteps of their artistic mother?
