835: (285/365) Coyote

Posted by wonko on October 14, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

It is a full moon, 24 miles south of the OKish Corral, and the local Coyotes are howling:

This rather cute wolf/dog/coyote…thing is a rather nicely structured quadruped that I think is a useful base for modelling other such critters.

It is part of a collection of wolves/howling things I looked out for when a particular house at school decided to use a howling wolf as their mascot this year. Read more…

834: (284/365) Swallow

Posted by wonko on October 14, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

I know, I am behind, but have been inexplicably tired of late, time to catch up: This is a swallow, or more correctly a mud lark, but is a fun fold from DOT1 that I was going to try.

833: (283/365) Porous

Posted by wonko on October 10, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

It is interesting how things sometimes just work themselves out: Here was me, panicking because I had nothing ready or in mind for today’s fold, came home and the latest Tanteidan Magazine was in my mailbox.

832: (282/365) “Love You Longtime”

Posted by wonko on October 9, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Apparently there is an Origami Olympiad – an annual internet competition where folders are pitted against a collection of challenging folds for points: This model is the first one from the IVth International Origami Internet Olympiad, a publication that contains other things I will try also.

831: (281/365) Swimming Fishie

Posted by wonko on October 8, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

Perusing my copy of Tanteidan Magazine #163, I came across a cute 2-part model that I thought I should try: Using orange for the fish and blue for the waves seemed to make sense at the time.

830: (280/365) Crab

Posted by wonko on October 7, 2017 in 365-2017, crustacean |

Exploring Drawing Origami Tome 2, I found this lovely little crab: Designed by Fernando Castellano, it cleverly divides up a waterbomb base into legs and nippers, isolating them from the body.

829: (279/365) Kablang!

Posted by wonko on October 6, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Leafing through my copy of Drawing Origami Tome 2, I noticed a spectacular modular designed by Francesco Mancini that I knew I had to try: Modules folded from 2×1 rectangles lock together really nicely, creating clusters of 3 and 5, forcing the megastructure to curve gently into a spikey ball.

828: (278/365) Spaniel

Posted by wonko on October 5, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Busy week, nearly at the weekend, this lovely little fold is a perfectly adorable spaniel: Designed by Patricia Kunz Tomic, in DOT1, I like the use of paper, general proportions and general spanielity.

827: (277/365) Metamorphosis

Posted by wonko on October 4, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Few things can compare to the biological miracle that allows a caterpillar to become a chrysalis, inside of which it’s body chemistry and morphology transitions from grub to soup to butterfly: Few models try to capture the whole journey. This set, designed by Fernando Gilgado  is an exception.

826: (276/365) Pelican

Posted by wonko on October 3, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

What a wonderful bird is a Pelican, whose beak can hold more than it’s belly can: We saw lots of pelicans when on holiday up the mid-north coast in the holidays just ended. Majestic gregarious birds that seem to be an odd sum of parts.
