This adorable cheeky monkey is a masterpiece of design: Using the back colour of the paper to highlight the face and ears, then working a nice body, lovely long tail and all.
Trolling through the interwebs, as you do, you oft come across things that you save for later: This “Little Bear” is a simple model (I have little time today) that I had saved for later but do not know who the designer is, sorry.
…little ball of fur! Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr purr purr: When I saw this model, I was fascinated by the whiskers, and wondered if I could fold it at the scale I had origami paper for. After finger-nail breaking manipulations, I managed to form the head complete with colour changed whiskers and was happy […]
So it is Wednesday, ‘Hump Day‘: Silly season in the assessment calendar, lots happening and a 2do list from hell. This is Eduardo Clemente’s ‘Camel’ – a dromedary or bactrian (who knows the difference?)
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 […]

If you have not seen the movie “Lion” starring Dev Patel, you really should, it is a wild ride, lovely story and contains reference to an Indian name that means “Lion”: I have been looking for nice lion models and a friend on Fakebook (Oriol Esteve from Spain) graciously shared a recent design. I knew […]
I have had this model on my “must try” list for ages but there was something about the fold sequence that made me uneasy, couldn’t put my finger on it: I decided to fold it in black, because…reasons. faithfully following the folding diagrams unexpected things began to happen – layers on the wrong side, meridians […]
Having folded Robert Lang, Jun Maekawa and Ronald Koh’s Rabbits, I feel I have been a bit spoiled in terms of “best” rabbits out there: Always on the lookout for something new, and given that it is Easter Sunday, a rabbit seemed appropriate and this rabbit gave me an interesting challenge.
Those who know me realise I am mostly a “cat person” but my parents used to have Bassets, lovely dogs that were low to the ground, long ears and seemingly wearing a skin that was 5 sizes too big: I have been looking for a good Basset hound model and, up until now, have not really […]
