As is customary on the first day of a new month, we say “white rabbits!”: This is an old design, and I am not sure i have the shaping quite right yet. Akira Yoshizawa is credited as founding modern Origami and this is one of his designs.
First day of the new month, one superstition seems to be to say “White Rabbits” as the first thing you say that day – not sure why: This is Fernando Castellanos’ rabbit, taken from DOT2, and it seems, designed to be folded on a MUCH larger sheet of paper than this.
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.
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” […]
Every so often a model emerges that has such a naturalistic form that so perfectly represents the subject. This lovely rabbit, designed by Ronald Koh is one such “must fold” figure: This lovely model is a dense fold (the hind quarters are necessary layer-dense to form the necessary flaps for the head), so thin paper is […]
A pinch and a punch for the first day of the month: This is Jun Maekawas Rabbit, a lovely 3d head and body and an interesting development – some precision needed in the early stages else it catches up with you later on. This is my LAST first day of the month – woo hoo! […]
Now I know it is not the start of the month, and I missed out on the pinch and the punch because of a horsey thing, but thought I should get in on the act of start of month eventually: A nice, compact and fairly poseable rabbit. Quite happy with this, although I seem to […]
The beginning of another month, and I am finding it difficult to find rabbits to fold: This is Stephen O’Hanlon’s rabbit – a simple figurative fold that is suitably rabbitty for the “pinch and punch first day of the month”. I cannot believe this heralds the last quarter of this project (10th month starting).
A Pinch and a punch (well, more correctly a sink, pleat and reverse fold – lol, origamist joke there) for the first of the month: This nice little rabbit is a clever use of a 2×1 rectangle and has a pleasing shape – heaps of modelling potential beyond the base fold. Designed in 2008 by […]
I like this model – a rabbit sitting atop a dice (white spots on the white die – totally Zen) Made with a 2×1 rectangle, containing a waterbomb and crafting the rabbit from what was left is neat I like the ears, nose and posture of the rabbit, and the fact that the waterbomb base […]
