650: (100/365) Mi Wu’s Dragon

Posted by wonko on April 10, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur, fantasy |

Now I must admit for model 100 of the current 365, to starting this mode before we went on holidays, but left it barely started as it has taken me an age to decrypt the directions for folding it: This lovely, plucky little dragon needs much bigger paper. Teasing the details and final shaping at […]

639: (89/365) Baby TRex

Posted by wonko on March 30, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

I am sure dinosaurs were not cute – not even baby ones as they were snappy wild beasts: The little purple beauty is designed by Issei Yoshino and is a lovely exercise in colour management.

630: (80/365) Eastern Dragon

Posted by wonko on March 21, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur, fantasy |

The dragon is a favourite subject for origami designers – most have tried their hand at one: This is Joseph Wu’s “Eastern Dragon” – how can we tell it is an¬†eastern dragon? It has no wings and does not need them to fly. It is only us silly westerners that decided to rationalise the dragon […]

618: (68/365) Plesiosaurus

Posted by wonko on March 9, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

Prehistory must have been an amazing time, evidence of such fantastical beasts continue to boggle the mind. The air was full of ferocious snappy things, land was populated by ferocious snappy things and the oceans were the same: This is Lu Hao’s “Plesiosaurus”, a rich, dense and interesting fold that results in a serpentine necked […]

611: (61/365) Pocket Godzilla

Posted by wonko on March 2, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur, fantasy, reptile, scifi |

I remember as a kid being a fan of most things science fiction, and loving Japanese monster movies particularly: There is something rather charming about a monster, effected by radiation, growing really big then being annoyed by greedy people, subsequently reeking havoc on highly populated areas of Japan.

568: (18/365) TRex

Posted by wonko on January 18, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, dinosaur |

Working in the same school for 28 years makes me feel a little like a dinosaur at times: This is Jo Nakashima’s TRex – a lovely little cartoony Trex that is fun to fold and simple enough to do with smaller coloured squares. I followed along with the video tutorial on Jo’s Youtube channel.

559: (9/365) Shuki Kato’s Western Dragon V3.1w

Posted by wonko on January 9, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur, fantasy, reptile |

In a true testament to sheer bloody-mindedness and perseverance, I present to you for my self-satisfaction my first SUCCESSFUL attempt at Shuki Kato’s “Western Dragon”: Some explanation: This is a western dragon because it has wings (westerners reason that to fly it needs wings). Potter nerds would naturally recognise that this is a “Hungarian Horntail“. […]

554: (4/365) Shuki Kato’s Simple Dragon

Posted by wonko on January 4, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur, fantasy, paper, reptile |

There are many subjects for origami models that are sort of a “holy grail” of folding, dragons are one such thing: This is Shuki Kato’s “Simple” Dragon – the term simple is a relative term, naturally, as most of Shuki’s models are not for beginners and this little charmer is no exception. I decided to […]

No Dragon, Just Head

Posted by wonko on December 20, 2016 in dinosaur, fantasy, geometry, paper, reptile, wtf |

Determined not to let Shuki Kato’s “Western Dragon” beat me, I decided to isolate the part of the model that I had failed on each of the 4 times I have attempted this nightmare of bent paper – the head: Using the crease pattern, I isolated the corner that is the head and made that […]


No, They Do Not All Workout As Planned.

Posted by wonko on December 13, 2016 in dinosaur, fantasy, reptile |

I _want_ to pretend that every bit of paper I touch turns into a magnificent model that everyone gasps at, but that is FAR from the truth.¬†This is my FOURTH attempt at Shuki Kato’s “Western Dragon”. It joins a LARGE collection of landfill (discarded unsuccessful models) and was responsible for many BAD WORDS but I […]
