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.

850: (300/365) …and now the Penguin on your television set will explode.

Posted by wonko on October 27, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

…how’d he know that then? Being a fan of Monty Python, I find quotes emerge everywhere. What better to celebrate 300 models than a lovely little penguin: Designed by Jun Maekawa, I am amazed I have never folded this little cutie before, such a nice shape and, with presentation paper it would be a great […]

849: (299/365) Squirrel!

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

It is well known that dogs and middle school – squirrel! – children are easily distracted – Squirrel!: I am reminded of Doug the dog from the movie “UP” every time I see my students trying to focus but being unable to notice everything else around them but what they are asked to notice.

847: (297/365) Tigger

Posted by wonko on October 24, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Perusing my copy of Drawing Origami – Tome 2, I noticed a lovely little tiger designed by Oriol Esteve: This teensy weensy tiger is very cute, has resplendent stripes and terrific proportions from paws to tail.

846: (296/365) Peacock 1

Posted by wonko on October 23, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

I gotta learn to be more careful, the previous post (which I removed the number from) turned out to be a refold from my first 365 (years ago) that I had forgotten about (I got the fold sequence from somewhere else and did not twig to the duplication … so sue me 😛 ) Fortunately […]

Triceratops

Posted by wonko on October 23, 2017 in dinosaur |

EDIT: as a kind reader pointed out, I have already folded this model, so it cannot count as one of the current 365. It is a relief on 2 fronts (1) Someone is reading and (2) This fold of this model is vastly superior to the original Some call me a dinosaur, they may be […]

845: (295/365) Leaf Katydid

Posted by wonko on October 22, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Insects seem to be a fascination among origami designers – at the height of “bug wars” when designers were competing for the most intricate designs that were  complex, had lots of legs, were thin and realistic renderings and really pushed the boundaries of existing techniques: This astonishing model starts as a frog base. Through a […]

840: (290/365) Gaff’s Electric Sheep

Posted by wonko on October 17, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Origami has featured in cinema in many ways. The Blade Runner franchise uses origami figures to accentuate certain story points and the most recent movie features an elderly “Gaff”, in a retirement home, folding a sheep: After some research it seems the model was a tweaked Jun Maekawa model. tweaked because the original has curled […]

839: (289/365) Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport!

Posted by wonko on October 16, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

I am always on the look out for well designed Kangaroos: Interestingly, the best ones are often designed by people who do not have them around. This delightful 2-part model is designed by Kunihiko Kasahara, from the book “Origami Made Easy”.
