Looking for a nice, rich, challenging fold for the day, I knew I needed to try a model from Robert Lang: This is his model “Jackson’s Chameleon” – a deliciously complicated model with all the chameleonic bits you expect. Working with a slightly un-square square of light green washi, the pre-folding is fascinating, layer management […]
PART 2: THE LLAMA, LIVE FROM GOLDERS GREEN The llama is a quadruped which lives in big rivers like the Amazon. It has two ears, a heart, a forehead, and a beak for eating honey, but it is provided with fins for swimming. Llamas are bigger than frogs.
Exploring Facebook, as one does, a delightful little sea turtle was posted in a group I am a member of by Migue Crm: A simple 16×16 grid, some lovely waterbomb collapses for shell scales and some lovely flippers make this a fantastic model all round.
I went looking for something reptilian to fold today (not sure why) and found this little charmer designed by Marc Vigo: Using a series of rabbit ears on a 2×1 rectangle, you isolate legs, head and tail rather cleverly.
Australian politicians are a weird lot. Not “American” (shoot first then barbeque something) weird, just an odd lurch from crisis to crisis and stab your mate in the back for a shot at leadership kind of weird: A recently deposed Prime Minister (Mr Tony Abott) is being a bit of an arse clown in the […]
Exploring Tanteidan Magazine 138, I noticed a rather lovely Frill Necked Lizard that I had not yet tried: This is Gen Hagiwara’s Frilly, a torturous fold that spends lot of time isolating legs and tail from the large corner that would become the frill and head.
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.
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.
Over the holiday break I have taken up swimming laps again. The aim was to be a little bit fitter and a little less fatter – it is sort of working. Naturally I wanted to choose a model for my last day swimming that itself swam, and a turtle/tortoise (who knows what the difference is) […]
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“. […]
