871: (321/365) Little Pig

Posted by wonko on November 18, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Always on the lookout for a cute model, I saw this design shared freely on Fakebook by it’s creator: This is “Little Pig” by Hung Cuong Nguyen, a lovely rich and complex model that seems to eat paper like … well, like a pig. Lovely round body, beautiful ears and a tail I decided needed […]

868: (318/365) Memory Like A Goldfish

Posted by wonko on November 14, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

It is a commonly held belief that Goldfish have a short-lived memory: I have no idea if this is true, but suspect it is complete bunk.

867: (317/365) Not Drowning, Waving?

Posted by wonko on November 13, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, humanoid |

This time of year is horrible. The plain truth of it is that, for a teacher, we have more marking than a reasonable person can do, and deadlines that seem impenetrable: I guess it is why teachers in Australia are payed the big bucks, right?

866: (316/365) Iris Butterfly

Posted by wonko on November 12, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

The online Origami community is rich and supportive. Last night Kade Chan shared his publicly diagrammed “Iris Butterfly” diagrams via Fakebook and  knew I had to try it: I used a fake US dollar bill, but it is actually designed for a Hong Kong dollar (which I think is a little less long and a […]

862: (312/365) The Night King

Posted by wonko on November 8, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

Now I am as much a fan of Game of Thrones as the next person, but I do like a good ice zombie as a baddie: This is Nick Robinson’s “Hairy Man”, but I think it is much more demonstrative of an icy undead monster.

859: (309/365) Jumping Frog

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, amphibian |

The traditional world of Origami has many classic folds, it is constantly amazing to me how few of them I have actually folded: This is a traditional jumping from – well, at least one version of it. The mechanism is simple and relies on paper thickness to provide a spring on the back legs. You […]

858: (308/365) Pollywog

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, amphibian |

Sometime a simple model has a charm of its own: This tadpole is a relatively simple exercise in box pleating to isolate tail and back legs but the shaping is lovely.

855: (305/365) White Rabbits!

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

As is customary on the first day of a new month, we say “white rabbits!”: This is an old design, and I am not sure i have the shaping quite right yet. Akira Yoshizawa is credited as founding modern Origami and this is one of his designs.

853: (303/365) Genie in a Lamp

Posted by wonko on October 30, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

…so if you found a magic lamp, rubbed it and a Genie appeared, granting you 3 wishes, what would you wish for?: It is an interesting, vaguely existential question that is remarkably difficult to answer with any certainty.

852: (302/365) Magic Carpet Ride

Posted by wonko on October 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, vehicle |

Go on, admit it. Ever since you saw the “Aladdin” movie you have secretly thought how cool it would be to ride on a magic carpet: This clever model, inexpertly folded, is an exercise in colour management- had I used bi-colour paper, the rider and carpet would be different colours – pretty neat.
