692: (142/365) Wu’s Modular Chess Board

Posted by wonko on May 22, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, geometry |

Looking around for a chess board in origami was fun, there seem to be a few out there, including a few that use only 1 sheet of paper and a million creases to perform the necessary colour changes for the squares: I discovered I could not source paper large enough to make a playable chess […]

691: (141/365) Max Hulme’s Chess King

Posted by wonko on May 21, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Head of the house, monarch to be protected, fragile and nearly the least mobile, such is a Chess King: I like this model, the crown is cute, as is his beard and robes – hiding the round figure of a largely sedentary piece.

Behind every good man there is often an even better woman: The Queen in chess is a valuable piece, being the master of all skills, often the most deadly of opponents.

689: (139/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Knight

Posted by wonko on May 19, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

…so, in a conventional chess set, the knight is a horsey, but in this chess set the Knight is the rider: Not sure I am really happy with this, difficult to tell with this thick paper, but the head shaping is clumsy because of the layers.

688: (138/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Bishop

Integral to the war effort, the church remains a dangerous player on the board: This is Max Hulme’s “Bishop” – a lovely little Pontif-ish chap that is missing his golden hook and holy relic.

687: (137/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Rook

Posted by wonko on May 17, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Many battles need castles, chess is no exception: This is Max Hulme’s Castle, one of the few in his series folded from a square and fairly recognisable at a turret.

686: (136/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Pawn

Posted by wonko on May 16, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

The next few posts will follow a theme, playing with the idea of a classic game, this is the infantry – the cannon fodder, there are lots of these to throw at the enemy: Max Hulme has designed all of the pieces for a paper chess game, seems wrong to split them up. Folded from a […]

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.

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.

683: (133/365) Pet Gripe

Posted by wonko on May 13, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, mammal, nature |

Last weekend I mowed the lawn – that is not so much a revelation as a statement of fact – I enjoy mowing, always have. I do not, however, enjoy the “presents” that dog owners allow their pets to leave on my lawn: I recognise that part of the pleasure of owning a dog is […]
