738: (188/365) Ya Goose!

Posted by wonko on July 7, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

So it is late, and I am tired, but sometimes I am a silly goose: So what is a goose – long neck, beak, webbed beat, stocky body – this model ticks all the boxes.

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.

721: (171/365) Kythera Dreaming

Posted by wonko on June 20, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, crustacean, geometry, nature |

A colleague recently spent an extended time back home on Kythera, a lovely island in Greece: Returning to work is never easy after such time away, but I can feel and understand her longing to return. This shell is meant to evoke dream memories of Kythera.

706: (156/365) Finger Gyro

Posted by wonko on June 5, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, wtf |

A craze among the young kids at the moment is the “fidgit spinner“, that little toy that … spins, and … well, that is just about it: According to some fairly shady “research”, these toys improve concentration, and that may be correct for a limited number of kids with specific learning issues, but, yeah. Enterprising […]

702: (152/365) Burning Down The House

Posted by wonko on June 1, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

I have been a fan of Talking Heads pretty well as long as it was possible to be one. “Burning down the house” remains one of the great songs of all time: This is Martin Wall’s “Matchbox”, an ingenious model folded from a single, much tortured, piece of paper. A lovely little life-size matchbox, folded […]

699: (149/365) Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty …

Posted by wonko on May 29, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal |

…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 […]

Tomoko Fuse is a living legend in the Origami Community, her designs are numerous, intricate, ingenious and challenging to fold: This is a 12 part modular with double-locks, frilly bits and framed holes in each face.

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: I recognise that part of the pleasure of owning a dog is […]

657: (107/365) Le Chat Noir

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

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 […]

652: (102/365) Sleep In

Posted by wonko on April 12, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, humanoid |

Now you are set to sleep in, for the first time in ages right? Your neighbour, bless him, decides this morning is the time to chainsaw and woodchip the hedgerow: As amusing as this sounds, this actually¬†happened to me this morning. Coincidentally I had just completed Fernando Gilgado’s “Sleeping In” model – seems the universe […]
