Now I am not so conceited as to think that humans are the only intelligent life in the universe, but the more I understand about humans, the more I am convinced that the sure proof there IS intelligent life elsewhere is the fact that they have in no way attempted to contact us. Nothing. Not […]
When I first saw NeelishK’s fold of this model I was in total awe of the boxpleating skill it showcased: He is part of a shared group on Fakebook and to my amazement shared, via photodiagram, guidelines and folding sequence suggestions.
Now I must admit for model 100 of the current 365, to starting this mode before we went on holidays, but left it barely started as it has taken me an age to decrypt the directions for folding it: This lovely, plucky little dragon needs much bigger paper. Teasing the details and final shaping at […]
The dragon is a favourite subject for origami designers – most have tried their hand at one: This is Joseph Wu’s “Eastern Dragon” – how can we tell it is an eastern dragon? It has no wings and does not need them to fly. It is only us silly westerners that decided to rationalise the dragon […]
Potter Nerds and Minecraft Nerds unite, for I present to you a “Minecraft” style cubey golden snitch: This buzzy little bugger would be difficult to catch in a full on game of Quidditch indeed. This is Riccardo Foschi’s “CuBird”, an interesting little CP that collapses with a little wrangling to make a lovely little cube and […]
I remember as a kid being a fan of most things science fiction, and loving Japanese monster movies particularly: There is something rather charming about a monster, effected by radiation, growing really big then being annoyed by greedy people, subsequently reeking havoc on highly populated areas of Japan.
“Help me Obi Wan Kenobie, you’re my only hope’: This is my second attempt at Tadashi Mori’s “Leia”, a fun fold that does so much with a tortured little piece of paper.
Do or do not, there is no try: This is Stéphane Gigandet’s “Yoda”, a lovely simple Star Wars character fold taken from a video I found on a Chinese version of a ebsite (the English version is here) – try it you should.
…now I am as much a fan of Star Wars as the next browncoat. I loved Orac, thought he was the best little droid sidekick since Starbuck and 7 of 9 was my favourite character in all of the series: This is Tadashi Mori’s “Storm Trooper” – a lovely little clone of a guy from […]
Now it seems Beatrix Potter has gone out of favour in the age of political correctness, but there is no denying the charm of her stable of animal characters as they anthropomorphise through their day: This is “Peter Rabbit” – well, more correctly it is supposed to be the rabbit from “Through the Looking Glass” […]
