Old-school origami can still be fun, and this model is no exception:

Eduardo Clemente’s book “Papiroflexia” contains a plethora of old-style 60’s origami, before the boxpleating, tree-maker days. Read more…

Cruising Fakebook, as you do, it is often that you stumble across interesting folds (well, in my circle of friends it is):

“Beyond The Folded Edge” – by Jonathan Baxter

Posted by wonko on May 14, 2017 in blarg, geometry |

It is rare, in Brisbane, to get to see Origami displayed at all, let alone an exhibition by an accomplished folder such as Jonathan Baxter:

His display at the Richard Randall Art Studio, Mt Coo-tha Botanical gardens was a rare treat.

His folding displays showcased numerous forms of origami including delicate unit work  like intricate spheres and torus from “Phiz” units, garlands of interlocking cubes and many variations. Read more…

683: (133/365) Pet Gripe

Posted by wonko on May 13, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, mammal, nature |

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:

681: (131/365) Tim Rickman’s Xenomorph

Posted by wonko on May 11, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, humanoid, scifi |

I am so excited that there is a new Alien Movie out today – Alien Covenant. Although I would dearly love to see it right now, I will have to wait until I am less busy and tired:

Having already folded both Kade Chan‘s Xenomorph, Fernando Gilgado‘s Alien and Face-Hugger I was struggling to find something Geiger-related.

I was browsing google imaged and came across Tim Rickman’s “comic” alien and knew I needed to try it. Read more…

Continuing my exploration of the butterfly form, I was browsing Kade Chan’s amazing website and came across his design for a butterfly:

679: (129/365) Scorpion

Posted by wonko on May 9, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Cruising through my copy of “Origamania” by Lionel Albertino, I came across a little creepy crawley I had not folded:

This scorpion is pretty clever – remarkably (by other scorpion standards) simple really for the effect, it efficiently creates the legs and leaves a nice body that can be made into a tail. Read more…

678: (128/365) Paper Ninja

Posted by wonko on May 8, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

The internet is an amazing thing, no sooner had I folded a model by Oriole Esteve, then he contacted me via Fakebook and offered me diagrams for a bunch of other folds:

This is his Paper Ninja – a cunning little fellow that seems fairly stealthy. Read more…

677: (127/365) Hung Coung Nguyen’s Butterfly

Posted by wonko on May 7, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Continuing my exploration of origami butterfly form, I realised there were a bunch of folds from the book VOG2 that I had not attempted yet:

I tortured a thin bit of hand-made washi for 2 hours, turning it inside out, backwards and every which way but the resultant form is lovely indeed. Read more…
