689: (139/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Knight

Posted by wonko on May 19, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

…so, in a conventional chess set, the knight is a horsey, but in this chess set the Knight is the rider: Not sure I am really happy with this, difficult to tell with this thick paper, but the head shaping is clumsy because of the layers.

688: (138/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Bishop

Posted by wonko on May 18, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Integral to the war effort, the church remains a dangerous player on the board: This is Max Hulme’s “Bishop” – a lovely little Pontif-ish chap that is missing his golden hook and holy relic.

Posted by wonko on May 16, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

The next few posts will follow a theme, playing with the idea of a classic game, this is the infantry – the cannon fodder, there are lots of these to throw at the enemy: Max Hulme has designed all of the pieces for a paper chess game, seems wrong to split them up.¬†Folded from a […]

Struggling to make it through Friday, I stumbled across Sy Chen’s Hangman: This paper puzzle allows you to gradually reveal parts of a hangman, suitable for a table top game.

678: (128/365) Paper Ninja

Posted by wonko on May 8, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

The internet is an amazing thing, no sooner had I folded a model by Oriole Esteve, then he contacted me via Fakebook and offered me diagrams for a bunch of other folds: This is his Paper Ninja – a cunning little fellow that seems fairly stealthy.

674: (124/365) Red Leader Standing By

Posted by wonko on May 4, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, scifi, vehicle |

May The Fourth be with you. Now I must admit to being one of the original Star Wars nerds, seeing the films when first aired a number of times – they heralded a new style of Sci-Fi, a place where space was common place, space ships were clean and villains announced their evil plans with […]

669: (119/365) Lillian’s Butterfly

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

Dedicated to Lillian Oppenheimer, a luminary in the early ’70s Origami world, this butterfly, designed by Michael LaFosse is pretty neat: Interestingly, not poles apart in technique from “Alexander’s Swallowtail“, I chose different colours and was careful with the wing formation so it was morphologically distinct.

668: (118/365) LaFosse’s Origamido Butterfly

Posted by wonko on April 28, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, creepy crawly |

Continuing my exploration of Michael LaFosse’s Butterfly folds, I present the “Origamido” Butterfly: Named after his signature brand of hand-made paper (of which I have a couple of sheets yet to fold), this little butterfly is lovely – the wings seem delicate and the body seems in proportion and is colour changed.

659: (109/365) I WANT To Believe

Posted by wonko on April 19, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, scifi |

Now I am not so conceited as to think that humans are the only intelligent life in the universe, but the more I understand about humans, the more I am convinced that the sure proof there IS intelligent life elsewhere is the fact that they have in no way attempted to contact us. Nothing. Not […]

648: (98/365) Floral Vase

Posted by wonko on April 9, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, domestic |

It is rare that a simple bit of geometry is so lovely but this floral pot combines glorious proportion and an efficient use of the sheet: A simple(ish) twirl causes the vase shape. I must work out how to fold this without the pre-creasing scars as I think this would look beautiful in large format […]
