786: (236/365) Beth Johnson’s Hex Owl

Posted by wonko on August 24, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

I cannot believe I have not tried this before: A lovely hexagonal tessellation in one corner of a hexagon becomes the fluffy tummy, collapsing the body makes for lovely eyes and a pair of crenellated wings.

782: (232/365) Wedge Flex

Posted by wonko on August 20, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, wtf |

Topologically convoluted geometric modulars confuse the brain – shapes that morph into different shapes in stable but seemingly unpredictable ways are fascinating: This is a wedge-flex – a modular hinged construction of a series of triangular prisms (wedges) that fold, bend, twist and re-align in interesting configurations.

730: (180/365) No Frills

Posted by wonko on June 29, 2017 in 365-2017, reptile |

Exploring Tanteidan Magazine 138, I noticed a rather lovely Frill Necked Lizard that I had not yet tried: This is Gen Hagiwara’s Frilly, a torturous fold that spends lot of time isolating legs and tail from the large corner that would become the frill and head.

698: (148/365) Cicada

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

I must admit to enjoying the challenge that is inherent in most of Robert Lang’s designs: When the Tanteidan magazine arrived, I saw there was a new version of his cicada, and I knew I needed to try it. Starting with a 35cm square of Daiso washi (that turned out to be slightly rhombic problematically), […]

681: (131/365) Tim Rickman’s Xenomorph

Posted by wonko on May 11, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, humanoid, scifi |

I am so excited that there is a new Alien Movie out today – Alien Covenant. Although I would dearly love to see it right now, I will have to wait until I am less busy and tired: Having already folded both Kade Chan‘s Xenomorph, Fernando Gilgado‘s Alien and Face-Hugger I was struggling to find something […]

676: (126/365) Stellated Octahedron

Posted by wonko on May 6, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I am always on the lookout for a striking modular to fold when I am idle at work. This beauty – two tetrahedrons mating, was an obvious choice: I have folded much more complicated versions of things like this – made with lots of little pieces each having different angle connectors. Ilan Garibi appropriates Francis […]

592: (42/360) Sooo…Mr Whitehouse, Can you Fold a Paper Plane?

Posted by wonko on February 11, 2017 in 365-2017, vehicle |

I have lost count of the times I have been asked this by students, presumably based on the assumption that because I fold paper I must make a mean paper plane: Truth be told when I make simple paper darts they fly terribly, not sure why. Many of the worlds great origamists started with paper planes […]

542: ‘Chu

Posted by wonko on July 31, 2016 in animal, fantasy, paper |

Pika, Pika, PIKA! Pika, Pik Pik Pikachu, pikachu? Pikachu. Pika? Pikachu. Such is the scripting necessary for a Pokemon standard character’s dialogue. Yeah, but…? So I have started to fold again, I need to bend paper and finding models I am interested enough to fold seems to be an issue for me at the moment. In […]

The Gardener

Posted by wonko on July 16, 2016 in blarg, humanoid |

People with “green thumbs” are a treasure to behold. As someone with a not-quite-green, more of a dirty yellow thumb I am in awe of people who delight in growing things. Our College gardener/groundsman John has retired, while I am as jealous as anything, I know he will have a fabulous time. Ever friendly, it […]

532: A Krafty Little Fokker

Posted by wonko on May 22, 2016 in vehicle |

Manfred von Richthofen, AKA “The Red Baron” flew a TRIPLANE – I know, right! Now a Triplane makes no sense to me, but using it, von Richthofen shot down his last 19 enemy planes, and subsequently crashed himself (you win some, you lose some): I have lost count of the times students have asked if […]
