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

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.

824: (274/365) White Rabbits

Posted by wonko on October 1, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal, seasonal |

First day of the new month, one superstition seems to be to say “White Rabbits” as the first thing you say that day – not sure why: This is Fernando Castellanos’ rabbit, taken from DOT2, and it seems, designed to be folded on a MUCH larger sheet of paper than this.

823: (273/365) Owl

Posted by wonko on September 30, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Cruising through my copy of Drawing Origami (Tome 1), I noticed a bunch of folds from there that I had not yet tried: This little fellow is a bi-colour owl designed by Juan Hibou. Owls seem popular in origami design and this one cleverly manages layers and colours.

821: (271/365) Satoshi Kamiya’s Ant

Posted by wonko on September 28, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

After re-subscribing to JOAS, in record time my back-issues of the Tanteidan magazine arrived and along with one of them, a really challenging diagram: About 170 steps, extreme paper torture and, as a project, something truly terrifying but I knew I needed to try it.

820: (270/365) Their Lives in Our Hands

Posted by wonko on September 27, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Recently I had the privilege to see Humpback Whales lounging and playing in Hervey Bay: I was determined to fold a Humpback, but only really found one designer that had designed something that even remotely looks like a Humpback. Highly tapered body, hooked dorsal fin, soft bellows-like throat, tail fluke – this model has it […]

819: (269/365) Jassu’s Dragonfly

Posted by wonko on September 26, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

I am finally back up to date with my 365 project after an unavoidable hiatus. This fold is taken from “Drawing Origami – Tome 2”, a charming figurative representation of a dragonfly: I like that the designer has distilled the essence of the critter down into it’s most recognisable features – body, head and wings. […]

818: (268/365) Simple Bat

Posted by wonko on September 26, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Amazed as I was with the postal response rate from Origamishop.com in France, my “Drawing Origami Tome 2” hardcover arrived before I got back from holidays. It is full of models for me to try, this is the first one in the book: A simple bat, made for duo paper, it looks a little more […]

815: (265/365) Pez 3

Posted by wonko on September 25, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

Browsing through Eduardo Clemente’s “Papiroflexia”, I am amazed at how prolific a designer he was, and how many variations on models he published: This is Pez#3 – a rather handsome fish with lovely colour changes.

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.
