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 […]

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 […]

707: (157/365) Tumasek Butterfly

Posted by wonko on June 6, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Browsing a BOS convention booklet, I came across a rather nice butterfly designed by Ronald Koh: This is the Tumasek butterfly, I folded it in duo yellow/green paper making it a little like a cabbage white butterfly.

698: (148/365) Cicada

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

I must admit to enjoying the challenge that is inherent in most of Robert Lang’s designs: When the Tanteidan magazine arrived, I saw there was a new version of his cicada, and I knew I needed to try it. Starting with a 35cm square of Daiso washi (that turned out to be slightly rhombic problematically), […]

693: (143/365) Ladybird Wing Hinge

Posted by wonko on May 23, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

I was reading a paper on Ladybirds, and it turns out they have remarkable wings. What makes them truly remarkable is they fit beneath tiny cup-shaped hard wing covers. Until recently, scientists had no idea how that mechanism worked: When ladybirds are about to take off, they lift their wing covers and then inflate complicated […]

685: (135/365) Bug

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

Old-school origami can still be fun, and this model is no exception: Eduardo Clemente’s book “Papiroflexia” contains a plethora of old-style 60’s origami, before the boxpleating, tree-maker days.

680: (130/365) Kade Chan’s Butterfly

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

Continuing my exploration of the butterfly form, I was browsing Kade Chan’s amazing website and came across his design for a butterfly: A relatively simple fold that is really economic in its use of paper.
