840: (290/365) Gaff’s Electric Sheep

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

Origami has featured in cinema in many ways. The Blade Runner franchise uses origami figures to accentuate certain story points and the most recent movie features an elderly “Gaff”, in a retirement home, folding a sheep: After some research it seems the model was a tweaked Jun Maekawa model. tweaked because the original has curled […]

836: (286/365) Pteranodon

Posted by wonko on October 14, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

I for one think collectors of fossils need to be really careful piecing together extinct animals from scant remains. Many a time illogical collections of bones have been cobbled together to bamboozle the public and, at first glance, a Pteranodon seems about illogical as a platypus.

831: (281/365) Swimming Fishie

Posted by wonko on October 8, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

Perusing my copy of Tanteidan Magazine #163, I came across a cute 2-part model that I thought I should try: Using orange for the fish and blue for the waves seemed to make sense at the time.

826: (276/365) Pelican

Posted by wonko on October 3, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

What a wonderful bird is a Pelican, whose beak can hold more than it’s belly can: We saw lots of pelicans when on holiday up the mid-north coast in the holidays just ended. Majestic gregarious birds that seem to be an odd sum of parts.

823: (273/365) Owl

Posted by wonko on September 30, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Cruising through my copy of Drawing Origami (Tome 1), I noticed a bunch of folds from there that I had not yet tried: This little fellow is a bi-colour owl designed by Juan Hibou. Owls seem popular in origami design and this one cleverly manages layers and colours.

816: (266/365) Spring Solstice

Posted by wonko on September 25, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, seasonal |

For purists, today marks the Spring Solstice, the “official” first day of spring (as per lunar cycles).  As a member of OUSA, I was asked to participate in the “Annual Gift”, which consists of contributing a fold to be used as a Xmas tree decoration at The American Museum of Natural History. Apparently this has […]

815: (265/365) Pez 3

Posted by wonko on September 25, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

Browsing through Eduardo Clemente’s “Papiroflexia”, I am amazed at how prolific a designer he was, and how many variations on models he published: This is Pez#3 – a rather handsome fish with lovely colour changes.

PART 2: THE LLAMA, LIVE FROM GOLDERS GREEN The llama is a quadruped which lives in big rivers like the Amazon. It has two ears, a heart, a forehead, and a beak for eating honey, but it is provided with fins for swimming. Llamas are bigger than frogs.

812: (262/365) Tiny T-Rex

Posted by wonko on September 24, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

This rather adorable tiny dino is designed cleverly by Eduardo Clemente: I am so impressed with the body morphology of this model, position and proportion of limbs seems really well considered.

811: (261/365) Stink Bug

Posted by wonko on September 24, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

My citrus trees have a problem that starts about now in the season: Infestations of stinkbugs arrive and soon they are thick with debilitating sucking insects. It would not be so bad but I seem allergic to their secretions, making getting rid of them difficult. I have tried garlic, chilli spray, soapy water, using an […]
