918: Procrastination Panda

Posted by wonko on January 10, 2018 in mammal |

Now if we were looking for a mascot for procrastination, I think a panda is the perfect animal because, well, from all accounts, they just couldn’t give a flying f*ck: It seems they are endangered. My guess is it is due to them losing interest in most things (except eating bamboo) including sex – a […]

916: Zhen Xian Bao (Traditional Chinese Thread and Needle Book)

Posted by wonko on January 7, 2018 in boxes, domestic, geometry, Traditional |

Interestingly, paper folding developed independently in most countries that made paper. In China, traditional folding included objects like this: This is a modern interpretation of a Zhen Xian Bao – a traditional thread case. Even cursory research on teh interwebs reveals astonishing combinations of these little compartments, nested in other compartments. This fold was designed […]

907: (357/365) Mr Origami

Posted by wonko on December 23, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Always on the look out for a model that somehow incorporates traditional cranes (Tsuru), I stumbled across this design and knew I had to try it: A clever pre-folding sequence caches paper that later emerges as “bird-baseable” end points you can locate at the ends of arms.

902: (352/365) Satan

So apparently a symbol of the festive season is a portly old beardy man in a red suit that gives presents to kids who have been nice (and not naughty): This is Steven Casey’s “Santa”, a lovely exercise in colour change and layer management.

893: (343/365) Teddy

Posted by wonko on December 9, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, mammal |

It has been said that “you are never alone with a rubber duck” – equally true with a teddy bear I suspect: I must experiment with the posture. designed for bi-colour paper, you cannot see the colour changes for eyes and the rest with this fold, but the arms and legs are charming, cutie ears […]

843: (293/365) Origami Architecture

Posted by wonko on October 21, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I was doodling with a 17cm square, divided into an 8×8 grid and collapsed, via a photodiagram (and a bit of wrestle-magic) into a curious but possibly useful surface corrugation/tessellation: With an exercise in patience, fold accuracy and layer management, a “swastika”-like collapse becomes a sunken 4 segment recess, then the edges tidy up with […]

807: (257/365) Won’t you come and fly ….

Posted by wonko on September 14, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, vehicle |

…in my beautiful balloon: This is an 18 section balloon made from 6 modules that overlap and interleave, edge locks that secure the geometry, no glue, no cuts etc. I can see it decorating a small kid’s bedroom, surrounded by planes and rocket ships. Who wants it?
