759: (209/365) Takashi Hojyo’s Dragon

Posted by wonko on July 28, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

Leafing through the Tanteidan Convention book #5, I came across an early Dragon design by Takashi Hojyo: This model is a modular – 3 parts (head/tail, body/legs and lovely wings) made from the same sized square, it needs glue (shhhh, I used a couple of nubs of double-sided tape) to keep it together but has a […]

755: (205/365) Gaff’s Blade Runner Unicorn

Posted by wonko on July 24, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, mammal, wtf |

Returning to Blade Runner, there has historically been much discussion about the humanity of the central protagonist, Deckard:Ridley Scott has recently confirmed that Deckard is a Replicant, a point visually reinforced by his recurring dream of “Unicorns” (unreal beasts). Near the end of the movie, an origami Unicorn is left at the door of his abandoned […]

742: (192/365) Chicken or the Egg

Posted by wonko on July 11, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

The age old questions, “what came first, the chicken or the egg” can be best answered with available fossil records as Dinosaurs came first: Waterproof eggs, such a step forward, liberating egg laying critters from having to deposit precious and defenceless young in pools, streams or wet places and allowed full colonisation of the land.

719: (169/365) Jason Ku’s Duck

Posted by wonko on June 18, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck, it probably is a duck: This is an intense little model that eats paper like few others. The body is heavy and shaping I found difficult because of the many layers.

718: (168/365) Nosy Cat

Posted by wonko on June 17, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal |

Pressed for time, I folded a model I had meant to fold a month ago: This is Oriol Esteve’s “Nosy Cat” – a lovely little cat that in my first fold looks more like a kitten.

713: (163/365) Roman Diaz’s Goat

Posted by wonko on June 12, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, mammal |

Scrumbling through my “must fold list” I came across a curious hand-drawn diagram set from Spain and decided to give it a whirl: After much torturing (I started with a 35cm square) the result is a rather lovely goat. I think this is my favourite farmyard animal so far – lovely proportions, fantastic modelling potential.

712: (162/365) Hojyo Takashi’s Dragon

Posted by wonko on June 11, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur, fantasy |

Dragons are an origami staple (although using staples is cheating!): I am always on the lookout for a nice design and Hojyo Takashi’s Dragon is no exception.

696: (146/365) LED Display

Posted by wonko on May 26, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Scratching around for something to fold, I stumbled across a 2-part modular that I had filed in the “must try” pile: LED displays are part of my past, little blocky symbols that were all the rage before screens went pixels and graphical.

693: (143/365) Ladybird Wing Hinge

Posted by wonko on May 23, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

I was reading a paper on Ladybirds, and it turns out they have remarkable wings. What makes them truly remarkable is they fit beneath tiny cup-shaped hard wing covers. Until recently, scientists had no idea how that mechanism worked: When ladybirds are about to take off, they lift their wing covers and then inflate complicated […]

679: (129/365) Scorpion

Posted by wonko on May 9, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Cruising through my copy of “Origamania” by Lionel Albertino, I came across a little creepy crawley I had not folded: This scorpion is pretty clever – remarkably (by other scorpion standards) simple really for the effect, it efficiently creates the legs and leaves a nice body that can be made into a tail.
