624: (74/365) Babe

Posted by wonko on March 15, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

It is rare that with relatively few folds the essence of a 4 legged beastie is so well captured: This is a continuation of the exploration of Eduardo Clemente’s work, his simple pig, charming little critter it is.

623: (73/365) Burro con Carro

Posted by wonko on March 14, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal, vehicle |

Yoshizawa Sensei once said “The Horse and the rider are not one, nor should a model of them be”, or words to that effect and I think this model is an interesting reflection of that sentiment: This is Eduardo Clemente’s “Burro con Carro” which I think means “Donkey and Cart”. Fashioned from a 3×1 rectangle, […]

621: (71/365) Little Mouse

Posted by wonko on March 12, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, mammal |

Under the weather at the moment, folding while suffering a streaming headcold is not much fun. After 2 model fails, I thought I should go simpler: I stumbled across an obscure book by Eduardo Clemente called “Papiroflexia”, it is full of historically revolutionary designs I must try.

616: (66/365) Nollentonk

Posted by wonko on March 7, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

When I was a kid, apparently I used to call elephants “Nollentonks”, not sure why but there you go: This is Chuya Miyamoto’s Elephant, a wonderfully complex fold that, like most folds of this critter, focuses on the head and trunk first then sorts a body out of what paper is left.

601: (51/365) Hideo Komatsu’s “Rhino”

Posted by wonko on February 20, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

I want to pretend that I have the skill level to master a fold first go, but in truth, sometimes it is not as simple as that: This Rhino appeared in the current edition of the JOAS magazine Tanteidan and I was determined to try it – an hour or so and it would be […]

598: (48/360) Neal Elias’ “Rocking Horse”

Posted by wonko on February 17, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, mammal |

This model is testament to the design genius of Neal Elias: Taking the bird base, and a colour change, we fashion a jockey (with the cutest little cap) atop a rocking horse. I love the detail here and will probably fold this again, only with a slightly bigger bit of paper.

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”) […]

569: (19/365) Japanese Macaque

Posted by wonko on January 19, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal, seasonal |

Emergent behaviour is fascinating, apparently where these Japanese Macaque monkeys live gets snowy in winter, they have learned that sitting in thermal pools near bathhouses (Onsen) is one way of staving off the cold: This is Fumiaki Kawahata’s Japanese Macaque – a model I had intended to fold ages ago because it was in a Tanteidan […]

553: (3/365) Yamaguchi’s Giant Panda

Posted by wonko on January 3, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal |

Apparently Pandas are endangered – seems they have lost their mojo (or are perhaps shy and do not like being observed so closely by people): This is Makoto Yamaguchi’s Giant Panda – a lovely 2 part model made for bi-colour origami paper, folded from one of my Tanteidan Magazines. In deciding whether I would attempt […]
