882: (332/365) Brian Chan’s Fiddler Crab

Posted by wonko on December 3, 2017 in 365-2017, crustacean |

…yes, I know I am behind, but I have been busy and my brain is fairly broken. As part of the cleanse I took a 35cm sheet of washi and decided to try Brian Chan’s Super-complex “Fiddler Crab” model, never entertaining the notion that I would achieve the model, but rather just to fold for […]

845: (295/365) Leaf Katydid

Posted by wonko on October 22, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Insects seem to be a fascination among origami designers – at the height of “bug wars” when designers were competing for the most intricate designs that were  complex, had lots of legs, were thin and realistic renderings and really pushed the boundaries of existing techniques: This astonishing model starts as a frog base.

I have these lovely bits of Lotka and was looking for something to be my first fold with this new paper: I chose Brian Chan’s Wolf spider partly because I had not folded it before and partly because the “milk chocolate” fibrous nature of the paper reminded me of the natural colour and texture of […]

If the paper was coloured green one side, red the other, then the way this design […]

There are many of what i would term “legendary” folds in the origami community – few more daunting that Brian Chan’s sculptural masterpiece “Attack Of The Kraken”: I first saw pictures of this model when trolling around the internet looking for paper challenges: one piece of paper, you bend both a masted ship and a […]

Remember remember the fifth of November Gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder, treason Should ever be forgot… As a kid I remember cracker night – well in truth, it was cracker week because you could buy fireworks and we used to spend the week blowing things up. In retrospect, all that […]

295: WALL-E

Posted by wonko on October 22, 2011 in machine, scifi, vehicle |

I am an out and proud Pixar fan, they make movies where animation is almost amazing as the story telling and characterisation: This is Brian Chan’s WALL-E – a lovely model that has taken me simply an age to complete for all sorts of reasons. I started with a 52cm square (yep, over a half […]
