920: Koala – A Possible Travel Fold

Posted by wonko on February 24, 2018 in animal, mammal, nature |

As I am about to embark on more world travel (see travelblog), I am on the lookout for a fold I can leave in each of the places we stay. Oddly, it is something I do, often hiding little Australiana figures in out of the way places,  to hopefully provide delightful surprises for subsequent guests: […]

917: Triangular Mouse

Posted by wonko on January 10, 2018 in geometry, mammal |

It is a little known fact that mice used to originally be triangular – the closer to a right angle triangle, the more genetically successful apparently*: This charming model is designed by Makoto Yamaguchi, a quirky fold that I found when browsing Tanteidan 106.

913: (363/365) When you wish upon a Star …

Posted by wonko on December 29, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

So when I asked for suggestions on what to fold, Janet suggested a Starfish which prompted me to try Riccardo Foschi’s model: Made from a pentagon, a lovely little fold that has some charming qualities.

There are many bears out there in the origami design community, and I have folded most of them: This is Robyn Glynn’s “Teddy”, a charming bi-color fold that looks cuddly and seems quite poseable.

905: (355/365) Emperor Palpatine

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

I am sure you remember the good old days, when things were better. In the Star Wars Universe this meant Luke, Leia and Han battling the dark side of the force wearing cheesy costumes, in squeeky clean spaceships, among a rain of pew pew pew: The truth is there were no “good old days”, they […]

900: (350/365) Calamari

Posted by wonko on December 16, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, fish, nature |

I stumbled across a “dollar fold” designed by Daniel Brown and decided to try it: An interesting exercise in sinking, point isolation and layer management, this charming squid looks fresh enough to cook.

894: (344/365) Baby Harp Seal

Posted by wonko on December 10, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal, seasonal |

Sad but true, baby harp seals up until fairly recently were hunted for their pelts – the fashion industry could not get enough of them: While seal hunting still continues today for food, oil and pelts, the clubbing of baby harp seals has largely been banned.

891: (341/365) Drop Box

Posted by wonko on December 7, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, Crease Pattern, domestic, geometry |

Apparently there is a lolly in Holland called “Drop” – it is most likely a salted licorice, must look that up. This box is designed to gift “drop” to friends: When I first saw the model I was sure it was a bomb … I mean, look at it!

880: (330/365) Seated Mother

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

So the challenge to render a more feminine figure, seated, as if tending something was on: Using a variation of the generic judaian I managed to change the head, add knees and change the posture so sitting is suggested.

878: (328/365) Holy Infant

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

So the next challenge was to render a babe, in swaddling clothes: Using principles garnered from an adult fold, I sort of MacGuivered a larger-proportion head, wrapped the body and presto.
