913: (363/365) When you wish upon a Star …

Posted by wonko on December 29, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

So when I asked for suggestions on what to fold, Janet suggested a Starfish which prompted me to try Riccardo Foschi’s model: Made from a pentagon, a lovely little fold that has some charming qualities.

904: (354/365) Caterpillar

Posted by wonko on December 20, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, geometry |

When looking for a simple fold, one’s attention naturally falls on a torturous corrugation-based model that takes an age to fold (not): This is Maarten Van Gelder Caterpillar – an exhaustive corrugation executed on an 8×1 rectangle (although I think it would be more effective on even longer paper).

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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.

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. […]

811: (261/365) Stink Bug

Posted by wonko on September 24, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

My citrus trees have a problem that starts about now in the season: Infestations of stinkbugs arrive and soon they are thick with debilitating sucking insects. It would not be so bad but I seem allergic to their secretions, making getting rid of them difficult. I have tried garlic, chilli spray, soapy water, using an […]
