763: (213/365) There’s a Fly in my …

Posted by wonko on August 1, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Looking for something to fold that was vaguely “insecty”, I stumbled across a lovely box-pleated fly mangled from a 2×1 rectangle: Based on a 16×32 grid, we isolate head, legs, lovely plump abdomen and leave the back flap for a lovely set of wings.

762: (212/365) Free Hugs

Posted by wonko on July 31, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, crustacean, fantasy, scifi, wtf |

Anyone who knows me realises I am a HUGE Alien fan (well, except for Alien 4 – The Apology) so I find it irresistible when I find an Alien-related fold: This is Makoto Anzai’s “Face Hugger”, a snarly hand-inspired ovipositor that is the precursor to a chestburster. Similar to Fernando Gilgado’s model, this one has a different […]

751: (201/365) Pushing Shiz Uphill

Posted by wonko on July 20, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, creepy crawly |

Sometimes work can be busy. When spares are sparse, classes all doing new/complex things and physical exertion hit their peak, sometimes you can feel like you are pushing shiz up hill: This is a lovely little dung beetle, coveting it’s little ball of dung. It is a charming fold that I was unsure if I […]

736: (186/365) Stoopid Monkey!

Posted by wonko on July 5, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, creepy crawly, crustacean, dinosaur, fish, humanoid, mammal, reptile |

Australian politicians are a weird lot. Not “American” (shoot first then barbeque something) weird, just an odd lurch from crisis to crisis and stab your mate in the back for a shot at leadership kind of weird: A recently deposed Prime Minister (Mr Tony Abott) is being a bit of an arse clown in the […]

717: (167/365) Michael LaFosse’s Le Papillon de Nuit

Posted by wonko on June 16, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Le Papillon de Nuit translates, roughly as “The Night Butterfly” – a charming fold with a lovely detailed abdomen: Unlike the other La Fosse butterflies, this one works and then re-works layers on the wings, making the finished model smaller but unique in shape.

716: (166/365) Michael LaFosse’s Mudarri Luna Moth

Posted by wonko on June 15, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Catching up, finally, and continuing exploration of the form, this is a luna moth: apparently the main difference between a moth and a butterfly is that moths typically do not have winds that meet above the body – I may have just made that up: I like the slight “swallowtail” formation here – lots of […]

715: (165/365) Michael LaFosse’s Butterfly for Russell Cashdollar

Posted by wonko on June 15, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Yes, I know, it is a day late, but i have been busy marking, so, yeah: This is another Michael LaFosse butterfly – more fancy than most with the pleaty zig zags adding decorative touches.

714: (164/365) Michael LaFosse’s Butterfly for Tony Cheng

Posted by wonko on June 13, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Continuing my exploration of the butterfly form, where better to look than a lovely papillon from Michael LaFosse’s “Butterflies” bible: This lovely little flapper again uses bicolour paper cleverly, has a nice efficiency of final model size for starting paper size and was fun to fold.

Flight, Wing or Swarm

Posted by wonko on June 10, 2017 in creepy crawly, nature |

As I continue to explore the butterfly form, I am amazed by the similarities and differences in approaches taken by origami designers: It seems the references are firmly divided on what the collective noun for butterflies is. Some say swarm, some flight, others wing. What do you think? I am on the lookout for others […]

711: (161/365) Rikki Donachie’s Butterfly

Posted by wonko on June 10, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Cruising teh interwebs for today’s fold, a butterfly design was shared on the Sydney Origami Society’s Fakebook feed: This is Rikki Donachie’s Butterfly, a lovely simple but effective butterfly design.
