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 […]

Not sure if Australia has any native species of Hummingbird: Some “sunbirds” look similar but are not closely related species.

738: (188/365) Ya Goose!

So it is late, and I am tired, but sometimes I am a silly goose: So what is a goose – long neck, beak, webbed beat, stocky body – this model ticks all the boxes.

737: (187/365) Penguin

Posted by wonko on July 6, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Reading through Origami Bygota, I stumbled across Ma Yong’s charming penguin: Clever use of colour change goes part way to defining a penguin, but proportions and general morphology also helps.

723: (173/365) Feathered Tsuru

Posted by wonko on June 22, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, Crease Pattern, Traditional |

Few would argue that the Tsuru (crane) is the quintessential origami figure. Everybody starts there, the form is so familiar and the skills necessary to fold it form the backbone of so many models: While I have tried many variations of this model, few compare to Riccardo Foschi’s “feathered Tsuru”, a glorious and complex variation […]

719: (169/365) Jason Ku’s Duck

Posted by wonko on June 18, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck, it probably is a duck: This is an intense little model that eats paper like few others. The body is heavy and shaping I found difficult because of the many layers.

709: (159/365) Satoshi Kamiya’s Tsuru Rose

Posted by wonko on June 8, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, geometry |

I am nothing if not determined at times. This  model has beaten me many times but, due to a perfect storm it seemed to just happen in my hands: This is Satoshi Kamiya’s “Tsuru Rose” – an odd but beautiful combination of a Kawasaki rose twist in the body segment of a traditional Tsuru.

684: (134/365) Wise Owl

Posted by wonko on May 14, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Cruising Fakebook, as you do, it is often that you stumble across interesting folds (well, in my circle of friends it is): This is “Owl” by¬†Angel Jacobo Figueroa Arriola. I spotted it as a photodiagram sequence in one of his galleries.

645: (95/365) Peacock

Posted by wonko on April 8, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

A model I had mastered as a child was the only Peacock I had seen folded until fairly recently: This is Edwin Corrie’s Peacock, a magic little model that makes a tight efficient little body out of one corner of the square leaving lots of paper for the fan-shaped tail.

641: (91/365) Sparrow

Posted by wonko on April 8, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

I recently was on holiday in regional Victoria, and have a few models as “catch-up”: Our holiday digs were near a lake, rich in bird life.
