926: Tiger, tiger, burning bright

Posted by wonko on June 21, 2018 in animal, mammal |

There are lots of origami tigers – few actually look like tigers – you know, the stripey thing. This model is radically different: Using a HUGE square (I hand-made a large piece of double tissue – black and yellow), you start with a birdbase, then torture the paper for 2 days to create a pleated […]

922: Modular Kangaroo

Posted by wonko on March 10, 2018 in animal, mammal, paper |

I am still on the lookout for a nice travel fold – something I can leave as a stealthy “thankyou” to the hosts of places we will stay overseas: This is Seiji Nishikawa’s Kangaroo – an amazing 3 part modular that I decided to try folding using hand-made paper. The model is in 3 parts […]

920: Koala – A Possible Travel Fold

Posted by wonko on February 24, 2018 in animal, mammal, nature |

As I am about to embark on more world travel (see travelblog), I am on the lookout for a fold I can leave in each of the places we stay. Oddly, it is something I do, often hiding little Australiana figures in out of the way places,  to hopefully provide delightful surprises for subsequent guests: […]

918: Procrastination Panda

Posted by wonko on January 10, 2018 in mammal |

Now if we were looking for a mascot for procrastination, I think a panda is the perfect animal because, well, from all accounts, they just couldn’t give a flying f*ck: It seems they are endangered. My guess is it is due to them losing interest in most things (except eating bamboo) including sex – a […]

917: Triangular Mouse

Posted by wonko on January 10, 2018 in geometry, mammal |

It is a little known fact that mice used to originally be triangular – the closer to a right angle triangle, the more genetically successful apparently*: This charming model is designed by Makoto Yamaguchi, a quirky fold that I found when browsing Tanteidan 106.

Riccardo Foschi has a magic sense of design in his models, and this cartoon rabbit is a real charmer: As an exercise in box pleating, this model takes a 12 x 24 square grid and, via a. Are fully designed collapse teases arms, legs, tummy and detailed head while providing enough paper to model those […]

911: (361/365) Tiny Teddy

Posted by wonko on December 27, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

There are many bears out there in the origami design community, and I have folded most of them: This is Robyn Glynn’s “Teddy”, a charming bi-color fold that looks cuddly and seems quite poseable.

908: (358/365) ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas …

Posted by wonko on December 24, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, fantasy, mammal, seasonal |

…and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except for a mouse: Prep for festivities is always fun. Family feast tomorrow, lots to do. I hope you and your families enjoy the prep time as much as the day itself.

894: (344/365) Baby Harp Seal

Posted by wonko on December 10, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal, seasonal |

Sad but true, baby harp seals up until fairly recently were hunted for their pelts – the fashion industry could not get enough of them: While seal hunting still continues today for food, oil and pelts, the clubbing of baby harp seals has largely been banned.

893: (343/365) Teddy

Posted by wonko on December 9, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, mammal |

It has been said that “you are never alone with a rubber duck” – equally true with a teddy bear I suspect: I must experiment with the posture. designed for bi-colour paper, you cannot see the colour changes for eyes and the rest with this fold, but the arms and legs are charming, cutie ears […]
