760: (210/365) Akiko Yamanashi’s Scallop Box

Posted by wonko on July 29, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, crustacean |

To celebrate the 201st fold in this challenge, I was looking for a shellfish-based fold – not sure why but there you go: Leafing through a Tanteidan Convention book, I came across a “Scallop Box” design designed by Akiko Yamanashi.

754: (204/365) Gaff’s Blade Runner Chicken

Posted by wonko on July 23, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, bird, fantasy |

My top 5 movies of all time includes the Sci-Fi classic “Blade Runner”. A couple of times during the movie, to confirm a character’s opinion of Deckard’s actions, his sidekick “Gaf” left an origami figure: One was actually folded by the actor (Edward James Olmos) – a gum wrapper was fashioned into a Chicken. He […]

746: (196/365) Fairly Bloody Long Walk

Posted by wonko on July 15, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, wtf |

My lovely daughter walked for charity last year and I was so proud of her (secretly regretting not doing it with her). This year, the same walk is on offer at, thankfully, at a much cooler time of year so we are both walking “The Bloody Long Walk” in early August: Today, as part of […]

733: (183/365) Panda

Matt and Alix came over for lunch, so nice to have their company (BLATs and an amazing, experimental chocolate souffle): We ate, talked, played Takenoko – a board game about Pandas and bamboo farming, such cute imagery. I want to say I won, but I played and did my best – that is always good enough.

724: (174/365) School Holidays!

Posted by wonko on June 23, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

After a brutally busy term, it is time to recharge, dance a little, be thankful for the good things that surround you: This is Jeremy Shafer’s “The Dancers” – a charming little pleating exercise that takes a square (in this case a 15cm Japanese foil square) and, via a clever set of collapses, isolates 2 […]

Posted by wonko on June 15, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Yes, I know, it is a day late, but i have been busy marking, so, yeah: This is another Michael LaFosse butterfly – more fancy than most with the pleaty zig zags adding decorative touches.

Cruising teh interwebs for today’s fold, a butterfly design was shared on the Sydney Origami Society’s Fakebook feed: This is Rikki Donachie’s Butterfly, a lovely simple but effective butterfly design.

700: (150/365) Little Bear

Posted by wonko on May 30, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

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.

691: (141/365) Max Hulme’s Chess King

Posted by wonko on May 21, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Head of the house, monarch to be protected, fragile and nearly the least mobile, such is a Chess King: I like this model, the crown is cute, as is his beard and robes – hiding the round figure of a largely sedentary piece.

687: (137/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Rook

Posted by wonko on May 17, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Many battles need castles, chess is no exception: This is Max Hulme’s Castle, one of the few in his series folded from a square and fairly recognisable at a turret.
