604: (54/365) Heart-Shaped Box

Posted by wonko on February 23, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes |

Any self-respecting Nirvana fan is familiar with the song “Heart Shaped Box”:

I was listening to some vintage Nirvana on Spotify and that simple song inspired this simple box. Read more…

603: (53/365) Tsushima Cat

Posted by wonko on February 22, 2017 in 365-2017 |

I have had this lovely little feline on my “must fold” list for ages. Found in a cursory scan of a Tanteidan convention book, the folding sequence was fascinating:

I waited until I had the right paper – in this case another sheet of hand-made Daiso paper with fibre inclusions in a rusty red. Read more…

602: (52/365) Jason Ku’s Lizard

Posted by wonko on February 21, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, reptile |

I bought some hand-made paper with inclusions from Daiso and wondered how it would fold, so looked for a punishing model to test it out:

This is Jason Ku’s Lizard – a lovely little critter with toes, an elegant tail and a funky face with gaping mouth and bulby eyes. Read more…

601: (51/365) Hideo Komatsu’s “Rhino”

Posted by wonko on February 20, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

I want to pretend that I have the skill level to master a fold first go, but in truth, sometimes it is not as simple as that:

This Rhino appeared in the current edition of the JOAS magazine Tanteidan and I was determined to try it – an hour or so and it would be done – right? Read more…

600: (50/365) A Shedload of Models

Posted by wonko on February 19, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, wtf |

For those of you keeping up, you will notice SOME of the posts on this blog have numbers. The first number (in this case 600) represents a catalogue of sorts – it documents the number of new models that I have never folded, before documenting it here:

Jo Nakashima’s “6” is new for me, the “0” is a refold but, yeah, 600!!!! Read more…

599: (49/360) Jun Maekawa’s Square Donut

Posted by wonko on February 18, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Starting with 2 squares of paper, some simple creasing, an odd thing happens – a solid shape emerges:

This squarish donut is odd, it slides together with nearly no folding and creates an interesting geometry. Read more…

598: (48/360) Neal Elias’ “Rocking Horse”

Posted by wonko on February 17, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, mammal |

This model is testament to the design genius of Neal Elias:

Taking the bird base, and a colour change, we fashion a jockey (with the cutest little cap) atop a rocking horse. I love the detail here and will probably fold this again, only with a slightly bigger bit of paper.  Read more…

597: (47/360) Jun Maekawa’s “Gemini”

Posted by wonko on February 16, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Puddling around in an old Tanteidan magazine, I noticed that the first few pages are usually devoted to smaller folding projects – often modular in nature:

This 2-part modular is fascinating and initially I found it baffling as the diagrams were not really clear (the illustrator was trying to represent stages that were 3d in 2d line drawings) and the instructions are all in Japanese. Read more…

596: (46/360) Keigo Matsuda’s “Peter Rabbit”

Posted by wonko on February 15, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, fantasy, mammal |

Now it seems Beatrix Potter has gone out of favour in the age of political correctness, but there is no denying the charm of her stable of animal characters as they anthropomorphise through their day:

This is “Peter Rabbit” – well, more correctly it is supposed to be the rabbit from “Through the Looking Glass” but the colouring I used is more Peter that White Rabbit in my opinion. I have never really understood the Victorian tradition of partially clothed animals (he is wearing no pants, right?) but that is carried over to cartoon characters also which is a little odd.

595: (45/360) Valentines Day

Posted by wonko on February 14, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Now I know there are those who say that Valentines Day is a Hallmark business opportunity, but I happen to think that celebrating someone you love is a good thing:

My valentine loves to read, so I thought a pair of Washi Deluxe bookmarks would not go astray. Read more…
