556: (6/365) Tiny Cobra

Posted by wonko on January 6, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, reptile |

In exploring the “Tiny Snek” interwebs phenomenon, I stumbled across a money fold that resulted in a simple cobra: This is a variation on Vu Dung’s Cobra, folded from a 2×1 rectangle. Although relatively simple it was made more difficult by the size of the fold – this is tiny but still has a recognisable […]

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 […]

527: Gargoyle

Posted by wonko on April 18, 2016 in creepy crawly, dinosaur, fantasy, reptile |

I often fold for relaxation and therapy, this design “Gargoyle” by Alessandro Beber is a fold I took up to keep my mind busy during some tough times near Easter: I find folding calming, and I started this to keep mentally busy as my Dad got sicker and sicker in hospital. He passed before I […]

449: Chuka Ryu

Posted by wonko on August 18, 2013 in dinosaur, fantasy, reptile, wtf |

I stumbled across low res hand-drawn diagrams of a Ryu (Chinese dragon) and with a cursory glance said “why not give that a go”: Two weeks later and a whole bunch of improvising helped me realise that may not have been a wise choice but I have something that is at least based on Hoang Trung […]

442: Ryuzin 1.0

Posted by wonko on June 10, 2013 in animal, dinosaur, fantasy, reptile |

Satoshi Kamiya’s Ryuzin series is legendary in the Origami Community. Starting at the relatively simple 1.0 (folded here),  the next iteration is 2.1 culminating in the insane 3.5: Whilst I am not sure I have the time nor skill to even attempt 2.1 (let alone 3.5), my attempt at 1 is chronicled here. After finding […]

At Loggerheads

Posted by wonko on May 17, 2013 in nature, reptile |

I have been a little down, sick and my hands are not working as well as they should be so needed something to boost my spirits: I took a sheet of 35x35cm Olive Tant and decided to try and re-make a model I have only ever achieved once, much much bigger. Logic would suggest, in […]

423: A Diskworld

Posted by wonko on December 29, 2012 in fantasy, mammal, nature, reptile |

Sir Terry Pratchett, one of my favourite authors, imagined a world like no other, a “disk” world, held aloft on the back of 4 gigantic elephants, standing on the back of a giant star turtle called “Great A’ Tuin”: The breadth of imagination, depth of character, intricacy of story arc and obvious love he lavishes […]

422: Loggerhead Turtle

Posted by wonko on December 29, 2012 in reptile |

When our kids were little tackers, we went on a summer holiday to Mon Repos, North Queensland, to see the turtles laying and hatching: During the night, exhausted loggerhead, green and leatherback turtles haul themselves out of the surf, up the beach, gig holes and lay eggs – on the same beach they, themselves hatched […]
