909: (359/365) The Real Present is your Presence

Posted by wonko on December 25, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

Christmas is many things to many people. For me it is another chance to get together with family and catch up over a shared feast:

I hope that wherever you find yourself, you stay safe and look after each other, share some joy, love, hugs and laughter. Merry Christmas, ho ho ho and all that humbug. Read more…

908: (358/365) ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas …

Posted by wonko on December 24, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, fantasy, mammal, seasonal |

…and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except for a mouse: Prep for festivities is always fun. Family feast tomorrow, lots to do. I hope you and your families enjoy the prep time as much as the day itself.

907: (357/365) Mr Origami

Posted by wonko on December 23, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Always on the look out for a model that somehow incorporates traditional cranes (Tsuru), I stumbled across this design and knew I had to try it: A clever pre-folding sequence caches paper that later emerges as “bird-baseable” end points you can locate at the ends of arms.

906: (356/365) Top of the Food Chain

Posted by wonko on December 22, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, fish |

As custodians of this planet, we do a pretty lousy job overall at looking after it. We see apex predators as threats and demonise them for acting naturally in their own domain: In Australia, we employ shark nets which each year kill more OTHER things things than keep out sharks – time to think more […]

905: (355/365) Emperor Palpatine

Posted by wonko on December 21, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, scifi |

I am sure you remember the good old days, when things were better. In the Star Wars Universe this meant Luke, Leia and Han battling the dark side of the force wearing cheesy costumes, in squeeky clean spaceships, among a rain of pew pew pew: The truth is there were no “good old days”, they […]

904: (354/365) Caterpillar

Posted by wonko on December 20, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, geometry |

When looking for a simple fold, one’s attention naturally falls on a torturous corrugation-based model that takes an age to fold (not): This is Maarten Van Gelder Caterpillar – an exhaustive corrugation executed on an 8×1 rectangle (although I think it would be more effective on even longer paper).

903: (353/365) Slippery Little Sucker

Posted by wonko on December 19, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, creepy crawly, nature |

I must admit to being a bit of a fanboy when it comes to the works of Satoshi Kamiya. His designs are genius, fabulously complicated to fold and make good use of the sheet: This is his Octopus – an amazing fold from an octagon that yields lovely little legs, a beady set of eyes […]

902: (352/365) Satan

Posted by wonko on December 18, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

So apparently a symbol of the festive season is a portly old beardy man in a red suit that gives presents to kids who have been nice (and not naughty): This is Steven Casey’s “Santa”, a lovely exercise in colour change and layer management.

901: (351/365) Little Bird

Posted by wonko on December 17, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

On my “must fold” for some time has been this design bu Hideo Komatso: Entitled “little bird”, I folded it in black to make an obese crow. A deliciously complex fold that ends up being a 3d representation of a robin-like bird.
