736: (186/365) Stoopid Monkey!

Posted by wonko on July 5, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, creepy crawly, crustacean, dinosaur, fish, humanoid, mammal, reptile |

Australian politicians are a weird lot. Not “American” (shoot first then barbeque something) weird, just an odd lurch from crisis to crisis and stab your mate in the back for a shot at leadership kind of weird: A recently deposed Prime Minister (Mr Tony Abott) is being a bit of an arse clown in the […]

735: (185/365) Flipper!

Posted by wonko on July 4, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

What’s that Flipper? Timmy has fallen out of his boat and is surrounded by sharks? You get the coastguard and I will get the anti-shark spray: An irrational tale of a Dolphin and his stupid pet human. I do not know about you but I grew up on cheesy American telly – Flipper, Brady Bunch, […]

731: (181/365) As Quiet as a ….

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

Today’s fold suffers a little from scale, but is none the less a cute little mouse: I must re-fold this model, there is huge potential for modelling, posing and character with this design, a clever little layer manipulation exercise.

726: (176/365) Star Block

Posted by wonko on June 25, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Sometimes a simple crease pattern leads to some interesting emergent geometry: This is Charles Santee’s “Star Block”, a 2 part modular that I found when trolling among Origami USA’s “The Fold” issue #22.

717: (167/365) Michael LaFosse’s Le Papillon de Nuit

Posted by wonko on June 16, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Le Papillon de Nuit translates, roughly as “The Night Butterfly” – a charming fold with a lovely detailed abdomen: Unlike the other La Fosse butterflies, this one works and then re-works layers on the wings, making the finished model smaller but unique in shape.

714: (164/365) Michael LaFosse’s Butterfly for Tony Cheng

Posted by wonko on June 13, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Continuing my exploration of the butterfly form, where better to look than a lovely papillon from Michael LaFosse’s “Butterflies” bible: This lovely little flapper again uses bicolour paper cleverly, has a nice efficiency of final model size for starting paper size and was fun to fold.

709: (159/365) Satoshi Kamiya’s Tsuru Rose

Posted by wonko on June 8, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, geometry |

I am nothing if not determined at times. This  model has beaten me many times but, due to a perfect storm it seemed to just happen in my hands: This is Satoshi Kamiya’s “Tsuru Rose” – an odd but beautiful combination of a Kawasaki rose twist in the body segment of a traditional Tsuru.

708: (158/365) Nollentonk

Posted by wonko on June 7, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

When I was in Japan, I bought 2 origami books and have not really folded much from them to date: The books are totally in Japanese, no English at all so I have NO idea who the designer of this model is. Made from 4 squares of paper (back legs, front legs, head, tusks) and […]

707: (157/365) Tumasek Butterfly

Posted by wonko on June 6, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Browsing a BOS convention booklet, I came across a rather nice butterfly designed by Ronald Koh: This is the Tumasek butterfly, I folded it in duo yellow/green paper making it a little like a cabbage white butterfly.

695: (145/365) Knight in Shining Armor

Posted by wonko on May 25, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

Jono sent me a link to the new trailer for the coming series of Game of Thrones: Seems like big things are set to happen in the seven kingdoms. Knights in shining armor in this series are rarely shiny at all, often dirty, lacking honor and glory – such is the reality of war.
