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.

900: (350/365) Calamari

Posted by wonko on December 16, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, fish, nature |

I stumbled across a “dollar fold” designed by Daniel Brown and decided to try it: An interesting exercise in sinking, point isolation and layer management, this charming squid looks fresh enough to cook.

895: (345/365) Tightrope

Posted by wonko on December 11, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry, humanoid |

Life is a delicate balance, kind of like being on a tightrope way above the ground in the bigtop. Balance is important, lots of things effect balance: Work, life, play, people, things that all take their toll on our balance, and we all struggle to walk the line sometimes, tipping this way and that as […]

894: (344/365) Baby Harp Seal

Posted by wonko on December 10, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal, seasonal |

Sad but true, baby harp seals up until fairly recently were hunted for their pelts – the fashion industry could not get enough of them: While seal hunting still continues today for food, oil and pelts, the clubbing of baby harp seals has largely been banned.

893: (343/365) Teddy

Posted by wonko on December 9, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, mammal |

It has been said that “you are never alone with a rubber duck” – equally true with a teddy bear I suspect: I must experiment with the posture. designed for bi-colour paper, you cannot see the colour changes for eyes and the rest with this fold, but the arms and legs are charming, cutie ears […]

889: (339/365) Sitting Duck

Posted by wonko on December 5, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

There has been a lot of talk in the media about people demonstrably doing the wrong thing, over a really long period of time. Interesting that one of the defences offered was that they were a “sitting duck” in the post-weinstein era. Regardless, a backyard should be a safe place to play: This is Henry […]

887: (337/365) Tree Topper

Posted by wonko on December 5, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, seasonal |

Always looking for a nice Xmas tree topper, this little angel is designed by Leonardo Pulido Martinez and was presented in one of my BOS journals: Had accuracy (and my Spanish) been better, I would also have hands (fingers) on this little model but I started with an almost square and crease drift occurred towards the […]

884: (334/365) Pegasus

Posted by wonko on December 3, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

In my list of “models to try someday” was this model designed by Takashi Hojyo: A complex management of points, this lovely rendition of a Pegasus has much to love. The wings, legs and general morphology are very pleasing to the eye but not easy to achieve as a fold.
