Morning Light with Dragon Head

Posted by wonko on December 11, 2017 in blarg, fantasy |

Revisiting a fold I achieved 3 years ago, I was struck with the dramatic lighting caused by an accidental reflection on our wooden floor and resultant shadow: You know when you see something amazing and cannot quite believe it was you who made it? I seem to be surrounded with such moments.

887: (337/365) Tree Topper

Posted by wonko on December 5, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, seasonal |

Always looking for a nice Xmas tree topper, this little angel is designed by Leonardo Pulido Martinez and was presented in one of my BOS journals: Had accuracy (and my Spanish) been better, I would also have hands (fingers) on this little model but I started with an almost square and crease drift occurred towards the […]

862: (312/365) The Night King

Posted by wonko on November 8, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

Now I am as much a fan of Game of Thrones as the next person, but I do like a good ice zombie as a baddie: This is Nick Robinson’s “Hairy Man”, but I think it is much more demonstrative of an icy undead monster.

854: (304/365) … you make One Fairy Cry …

Posted by wonko on October 31, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, seasonal |

Australia does not really have a tradition of Halloween, it seems to me a cultural import that encourages the worst sort of excesses – a point I tried to explain to a small halloweenie dressed as a fairy who came knocking on my door on this day a few years back: It did not go […]

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.

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 […]

755: (205/365) Gaff’s Blade Runner Unicorn

Posted by wonko on July 24, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, mammal, wtf |

Returning to Blade Runner, there has historically been much discussion about the humanity of the central protagonist, Deckard:Ridley Scott has recently confirmed that Deckard is a Replicant, a point visually reinforced by his recurring dream of “Unicorns” (unreal beasts). Near the end of the movie, an origami Unicorn is left at the door of his abandoned […]

754: (204/365) Gaff’s Blade Runner Chicken

Posted by wonko on July 23, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, bird, fantasy |

My top 5 movies of all time includes the Sci-Fi classic “Blade Runner”. A couple of times during the movie, to confirm a character’s opinion of Deckard’s actions, his sidekick “Gaf” left an origami figure: One was actually folded by the actor (Edward James Olmos) – a gum wrapper was fashioned into a Chicken. He […]

744: (194/365) Wizard’s Hat

Posted by wonko on July 13, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, geometry |

Anyone who has seen any of the “Lord of the Rings/Hobbit” movies will recognise the profile of this hat: Gandalf the Grey wore a wondrous felt hat like this, Mike Luo’s “Witches Hat”.

727: (177/365) Anibal Voyer’s Pegasus

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

I am Pegasus, my name means “horse”: I have had this “must try someday” pile for ages, thought I would give it a go. The fold sequence is tricky and that was not helped but the fact that the square I started with was not .. actually … square.
