607: (57/365) Storm Trooper

Posted by wonko on February 26, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, scifi |

…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 […]

605: (55/365) Starship

Posted by wonko on February 24, 2017 in 365-2017, scifi, vehicle |

Origami, the final frontier. These are the journeys of the paper folder “Wonko”, his ONE YEAR MISSION, to seek out new models and folding techniques, to boldly fold where he has not folded before: This cutie little Trek-inspired ship was hidden away in a Tanteidan convention book I have and all the annotations are 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 […]

525: Tadashi Mori’s Darth Vader

Posted by wonko on February 25, 2016 in fantasy, scifi |

Needing to fold something and having a lovely sheet of Elephant Hide paper means something is going to get creased: I saw this model in a video tutorial just published by Tadashi Mori and knew I had to try it. It reminds me of one of those cute little plastic dolly’s that are all the […]

517: Darth Paper – The Fold Awakens

Posted by wonko on December 15, 2015 in fantasy, humanoid, scifi, seasonal |

I will admit it, I have been a Star Wars fan since it was possible to be one. I saw the original movies many times in the cinema DECADES before my kids thought it would be cool to do the same with the new ones: The original 3 movies were special (well, they WERE before […]

Live Long and Prosper

Posted by wonko on February 28, 2015 in blarg, scifi |

This morning I was greeted with the sad news that actor Leonard Nimoy had passed away. Our universe is a little dimmer, missing a bright and shining star. “It’s life, Jim, but not as we know it”: A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP […]

490: Shake, Rover, Shake

Posted by wonko on January 4, 2015 in scifi, vehicle |

I have been a fan of Star Trek since it was possible to be so, love the franchise, movies, series, the lot. I saw a diagram that resulted in an ATAT (All-Terrain Armoured Transport) – one of many fairly silly designs from The Babylon 5 universe, and with some shaming from a friend (thanks Dodes) I decided […]

427: Geiger’s Xenomorph

Posted by wonko on January 14, 2013 in animal, creepy crawly, humanoid, scifi, wtf |

Anyone who knows me realises I am a huge fan of the Alien movies, the first one is, for me, close to perfect science fiction horror: I had been aware of Kade Chan’s Alien design for ages, had the crease pattern and wrestled many times trying to make it with no luck. I had relegated […]

395: Showing Off

Our local council library has a large glass display case that usually has things on show for a month. I cautiously asked one of the librarians if she thought some origami would interest patrons and she was very enthusiastic: There are around 200 models now on show at Holland Park Library for June and I am quite […]

380: Project Davros

Posted by wonko on March 4, 2012 in amphibian, creepy crawly, crustacean, humanoid, scifi |

I had this idea in my head that is should be possible to fold a DALEK (you know, that improbable plunger-wielding arch nemesis of Dr Who) from a single sheet of paper: I began over a two week period to explore the morphology of a Dalek, to come to the conclusion that it is most […]
