756 757 & 758: (206..8/365) Cat, Mouse, Cheese

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

So I have been really busy, with meetings and … stuff, so I fell a little behind. Looking to catch up, I noticed a lovely group of folds designed by David Brill: This is Cat, Mouse, Cheese – a naturalistic composition with a pair of lovely fold-related critters and a lovely wedge of cheese.

755: (205/365) Gaff’s Blade Runner Unicorn

Posted by wonko on July 24, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, mammal, wtf |

Returning to Blade Runner, there has historically been much discussion about the humanity of the central protagonist, Deckard:Ridley Scott has recently confirmed that Deckard is a Replicant, a point visually reinforced by his recurring dream of “Unicorns” (unreal beasts). Near the end of the movie, an origami Unicorn is left at the door of his abandoned […]

743: (193/365) Sleepy Cat

Posted by wonko on July 12, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Origami cats are hard – their soft elastic ways are difficult to depict artistically with a medium as stiff and uniform as paper: This is Christophe Boudias’ “Sleepy Cat”, a lovely model that I think manages to capture the posture of a cat that is cuddling up ready to sleep, tucking it’s little pawsies under its […]

739: (189/365) “Shoulda’ bought a Squirrel”

Posted by wonko on July 8, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal |

Cautionary advice indeed for anyone who has seen the movie comedy “Rat Race”: We saw our first live squirrels when we first travelled to the UK, in a lovely park in Holland Park (interestingly the same suburb name we live in now here in Australia). Lovely little grey filly, impossibly fluffy tail, cutely flitting around […]

Australian politicians are a weird lot. Not “American” (shoot first then barbeque something) weird, just an odd lurch from crisis to crisis and stab your mate in the back for a shot at leadership kind of weird: A recently deposed Prime Minister (Mr Tony Abott) is being a bit of an arse clown in the […]

733: (183/365) Panda

Posted by wonko on July 2, 2017 in mammal |

Matt and Alix came over for lunch, so nice to have their company (BLATs and an amazing, experimental chocolate souffle): We ate, talked, played Takenoko – a board game about Pandas and bamboo farming, such cute imagery. I want to say I won, but I played and did my best – that is always good enough.

731: (181/365) As Quiet as a ….

Posted by wonko on June 30, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Today’s fold suffers a little from scale, but is none the less a cute little mouse: I must re-fold this model, there is huge potential for modelling, posing and character with this design, a clever little layer manipulation exercise.

727: (177/365) Anibal Voyer’s Pegasus

Posted by wonko on June 26, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, mammal |

I am Pegasus, my name means “horse”: I have had this “must try someday” pile for ages, thought I would give it a go. The fold sequence is tricky and that was not helped but the fact that the square I started with was not .. actually … square.

718: (168/365) Nosy Cat

Posted by wonko on June 17, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal |

Pressed for time, I folded a model I had meant to fold a month ago: This is Oriol Esteve’s “Nosy Cat” – a lovely little cat that in my first fold looks more like a kitten.

713: (163/365) Roman Diaz’s Goat

Posted by wonko on June 12, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, mammal |

Scrumbling through my “must fold list” I came across a curious hand-drawn diagram set from Spain and decided to give it a whirl: After much torturing (I started with a 35cm square) the result is a rather lovely goat. I think this is my favourite farmyard animal so far – lovely proportions, fantastic modelling potential.
