596: (46/360) Keigo Matsuda’s “Peter Rabbit”

Posted by wonko on February 15, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, fantasy, mammal |

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” […]

576: (26/365) Ornithorhynchus

Posted by wonko on January 26, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, Crease Pattern, fantasy, mammal |

It is a little known fact that people will believe just about anything. Tell them that a furry, egg laying, duck-billed, webbed footed, egg laying, pouch carrying mammal that lives in burrows underwater and protects itself with poisonous spines … and they believe it: There are few things more distinctly Australian then the Ornithorhynchus (colloquially called a “Platypus”) […]

559: (9/365) Shuki Kato’s Western Dragon V3.1w

Posted by wonko on January 9, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur, fantasy, reptile |

In a true testament to sheer bloody-mindedness and perseverance, I present to you for my self-satisfaction my first SUCCESSFUL attempt at Shuki Kato’s “Western Dragon”: Some explanation: This is a western dragon because it has wings (westerners reason that to fly it needs wings). Potter nerds would naturally recognise that this is a “Hungarian Horntail“. […]

554: (4/365) Shuki Kato’s Simple Dragon

Posted by wonko on January 4, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur, fantasy, paper, reptile |

There are many subjects for origami models that are sort of a “holy grail” of folding, dragons are one such thing: This is Shuki Kato’s “Simple” Dragon – the term simple is a relative term, naturally, as most of Shuki’s models are not for beginners and this little charmer is no exception. I decided to […]

No Dragon, Just Head

Posted by wonko on December 20, 2016 in dinosaur, fantasy, geometry, paper, reptile, wtf |

Determined not to let Shuki Kato’s “Western Dragon” beat me, I decided to isolate the part of the model that I had failed on each of the 4 times I have attempted this nightmare of bent paper – the head: Using the crease pattern, I isolated the corner that is the head and made that […]


No, They Do Not All Workout As Planned.

Posted by wonko on December 13, 2016 in dinosaur, fantasy, reptile |

I _want_ to pretend that every bit of paper I touch turns into a magnificent model that everyone gasps at, but that is FAR from the truth. This is my FOURTH attempt at Shuki Kato’s “Western Dragon”. It joins a LARGE collection of landfill (discarded unsuccessful models) and was responsible for many BAD WORDS but I […]

549: Fluffy the Cerberus

Posted by wonko on October 30, 2016 in animal, fantasy, mammal |

Fans of Harry Potter will recognised “Fluffy” the 3-headed dog, Hagrid’s pet (oops, just outed myself as a Potter nerd). This is Satoshi Kamiya’s “Cerberus”, a rendition of a mythical beast that is an amazing design that in the end is really really fiddly.

544: ‘Ball

Posted by wonko on August 20, 2016 in boxes, fantasy, geometry, paper |

Now apparently, when faces with a wee beastie, you throw a pokeball at it and that, somehow, traps the beastie …inside.. the ball for safe keeping – truly, I cannot make this shit up: This is Jeremy Shafer’s Pokeball – a genius modular fold using 2 bits of paper that interlock at the hinge, forming […]

542: ‘Chu

Posted by wonko on July 31, 2016 in animal, fantasy, paper |

Pika, Pika, PIKA! Pika, Pik Pik Pikachu, pikachu? Pikachu. Pika? Pikachu. Such is the scripting necessary for a Pokemon standard character’s dialogue. Yeah, but…? So I have started to fold again, I need to bend paper and finding models I am interested enough to fold seems to be an issue for me at the moment. In […]

541: Charizard – GO!

Posted by wonko on July 19, 2016 in animal, blarg, dinosaur, fantasy, paper, scifi, wtf |

Now I am not of the generation that grew up with Pokemon, but seem surrounded by adults that were. Fandom/enthusiasm takes many forms and the latest augmented reality game “Pokemon GO!” is so hot right now I felt I had to fold a poke-thing because…reasons I had seen a video tutorial from Tadashi Mori on […]
