653: (103/365) Stretching Cat

Posted by wonko on April 13, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

As any cat owner knows, cats seem to be able to tie themselves in knots, and this pose is fairly typical of a stretch pose: Well, I say cat “owners” but in reality, cats own and train us to serve them, it is in the nature of cats really.

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.

604: (54/365) Heart-Shaped Box

Posted by wonko on February 23, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes |

Any self-respecting Nirvana fan is familiar with the song “Heart Shaped Box”: I was listening to some vintage Nirvana on Spotify and that simple song inspired this simple box.

599: (49/360) Jun Maekawa’s Square Donut

Posted by wonko on February 18, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Starting with 2 squares of paper, some simple creasing, an odd thing happens – a solid shape emerges: This squarish donut is odd, it slides together with nearly no folding and creates an interesting geometry.

597: (47/360) Jun Maekawa’s “Gemini”

Posted by wonko on February 16, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Puddling around in an old Tanteidan magazine, I noticed that the first few pages are usually devoted to smaller folding projects – often modular in nature: This 2-part modular is fascinating and initially I found it baffling as the diagrams were not really clear (the illustrator was trying to represent stages that were 3d in […]

596: (46/360) Keigo Matsuda’s “Peter Rabbit”

Posted by wonko on February 15, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, fantasy, mammal |

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” […]

581: (31/365) Brian

Posted by wonko on January 31, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

“He’s not a messiah, he is just a very naughty boy”. “Crucifixion? Good. Line on the left, one cross each”: In my opinion, “Life of Brian” by the Monty Python team is close to perfect, such a beautiful play in an otherwise familiar ancient world, full to the brim with some of their cleverest work.

563: (13/365) Jacky Chan’s Little Chinese Mammon

Posted by wonko on January 13, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Paper dolls are big in Chinese and Japanese culture, this little charmer is a two-piece model from Jacky Chan: Head and body are folded separately from the same size bits of paper and then the head neatly slots into the shoulders of the body. When folding this I started with the head and was convinced […]

544: ‘Ball

Posted by wonko on August 20, 2016 in boxes, fantasy, geometry, paper |

Now apparently, when faces with a wee beastie, you throw a pokeball at it and that, somehow, traps the beastie …inside.. the ball for safe keeping – truly, I cannot make this shit up: This is Jeremy Shafer’s Pokeball – a genius modular fold using 2 bits of paper that interlock at the hinge, forming […]

Double Dragon – Paper Wedding Anniversary

Posted by wonko on May 1, 2016 in dinosaur, fantasy |

When asked by a friend of my son’s if were possible to fold something to celebrate their fist wedding anniversary, which coincidentally is the “Paper” anniversary, I thought why not: The couple are┬ádragon fans, so it seemed obvious to include something from that world. I looked around for something that would present in a shadow […]
