653: (103/365) Stretching Cat

Posted by wonko on April 13, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

As any cat owner knows, cats seem to be able to tie themselves in knots, and this pose is fairly typical of a stretch pose: Well, I say cat “owners” but in reality, cats own and train us to serve them, it is in the nature of cats really.

Currently, in Queensland, there is a project to weave one million stars: This is a Froebel Star, one of the million forming around the state.

620: (70/365) Montroll’s One-Sheet Omega Star

Posted by wonko on March 11, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Modular stars are a thing, there are many beautiful ones including multi-sheet omega stars (8 pointers), but this little beauty is crafted from a single uncut square: From a sunken waterbomb base we tease xyz planes then fashion points from their intersections – genius.

605: (55/365) Starship

Posted by wonko on February 24, 2017 in 365-2017, scifi, vehicle |

Origami, the final frontier. These are the journeys of the paper folder “Wonko”, his ONE YEAR MISSION, to seek out new models and folding techniques, to boldly fold where he has not folded before: This cutie little Trek-inspired ship was hidden away in a Tanteidan convention book I have and all the annotations are in […]

598: (48/360) Neal Elias’ “Rocking Horse”

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

This model is testament to the design genius of Neal Elias: Taking the bird base, and a colour change, we fashion a jockey (with the cutest little cap) atop a rocking horse. I love the detail here and will probably fold this again, only with a slightly bigger bit of paper.

596: (46/360) Keigo Matsuda’s “Peter Rabbit”

Posted by wonko on February 15, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, fantasy, mammal |

Now it seems Beatrix Potter has gone out of favour in the age of political correctness, but there is no denying the charm of her stable of animal characters as they anthropomorphise through their day: This is “Peter Rabbit” – well, more correctly it is supposed to be the rabbit from “Through the Looking Glass” […]

574: (24/365) A Cautionary Tale (Part 2)

Posted by wonko on January 24, 2017 in 365-2017, fish, humanoid |

…you went in, the water was fine. You notice a nice fishy, it seems to want to be friends: This is part 2 of a series by Fernando Gilgado, again, like part 1 it uses bicolour paper and clever colour changes to highlight details.

557: (7/365) Jun Maekawa’s Borromean Cube

Posted by wonko on January 7, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

Most Tanteidan magazines start with a section that deals with modular folding. I was surprised to find a modular cube designed by Jun Maekawa, along with a bunch of variations. With cursory research, it appears “borromean” relates to interlocking shapes, and this cube has “ribbons” of colour that weave in among each other in an […]

406: Zombie Uprising

Posted by wonko on September 23, 2012 in fantasy, humanoid |

Trapped in a particularly uninteresting supervision (I am a teacher, sometimes we have to supervise other teacher’s classes), I began bending paper unsure what I was going to make. First I fashioned a hand, devising some lovely slender (skeletal almost) hands and looked at the paper I had left and then it came ot me […]
