680: (130/365) Kade Chan’s Butterfly

Posted by wonko on May 10, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Continuing my exploration of the butterfly form, I was browsing Kade Chan’s amazing website and came across his design for a butterfly: A relatively simple fold that is really economic in its use of paper.

667: (117/365) Alexander’s Swallowtail Butterfly

Posted by wonko on April 27, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, creepy crawly |

I must admit to never having folded any of Michael LaFosse’s designs, not sure why: I found a few designs that I thought I would like to have a go at – all butterflies, and this is one of them.

664: (114/365) Compact Cow

Posted by wonko on April 24, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

  This is a simple water-bombic critter, from a family of compact animals designed by Perro Cerdito: I decided to fold the cow, from a collection that contained a dog (thing) and a cat-ish thing.

663: (113/365) Lil’ Lion

Posted by wonko on April 23, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal |

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 […]

661: (111/365) Multiple Rippling Deltoid

Posted by wonko on April 21, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I have passed this model many times, thinking “not sure what that is, maybe later”, but decided to give it a whirl tonight: What a curious object. Designed by Jeremy Schafer, from his book “Origami to Astonish and Amaze”, this odd ripply mathematical conundrum hurts your brain to look at. A fun paper manipulation first […]

660: (110/365) Riki Saito’s Alien

Posted by wonko on April 20, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, scifi, wtf |

It is late, I am tired, the first week back at the start of the term is exhausting but this little alien is looking after me: Folded from Japanese foil, it compliments yesterdays model. Incidentally today is a few days after the 56th anniversary of humans in space as Yuri Gagarin first left our atmosphere

658: (108/365) Yoshizawa’s Goldfish

Few origami masters did more for modern origami than Yoshizawa Sensei: With delightfully few folds, his models evoke shapes, creatures and personalities.

643: (93/365) Square Bear

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

Australia do not really have bears, well, nothing that is actually a bear but this charming model needed to be folded so folded it I did: This is Edwin Corrie’s Square Bear, a charming model that is relatively simple but demonstrative of form.

642: (92/365) No Luck Involved

Posted by wonko on April 8, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

This fold was folded on our 34th wedding anniversary, chosen because a long and happy relationship is not reliant on luck: This dice is clever is a little obscure – rather than traditional dots each face has a partial coverage of colour.

641: (91/365) Sparrow

Posted by wonko on April 8, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

I recently was on holiday in regional Victoria, and have a few models as “catch-up”: Our holiday digs were near a lake, rich in bird life.
