804: (254/365) Daniela Caboni’s Yin and Yang

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

The principle of Yin and Yang is a fundamental concept in Chinese philosophy and culture in general dating from the third century BCE or even earlier. This principle is that all things exist as inseparable and contradictory opposites, for example female-male, dark-light and old-young: Right now I am trying to balance rest with exhaustion due […]

803: (253/365) Roman Diaz’s Owl

Posted by wonko on September 10, 2017 in bird |

There are many approaches to folding owls, all concentrate on the eyes and head structure: This fold takes you on quite a ride. Diagrams taken from “Drawing Origami Tome 1”, the folding sequence is clear and rich, but I am sure my next fold of this model will be better as I now know what […]

802: (252/365) Swallowtail

Posted by wonko on September 9, 2017 in creepy crawly |

Scrambling for a model for the day, and finding time to actually fold it, I found a lovely butterfly by Yoshihide Momotani: This is a Swallowtail, and was designed to be folded in bicolour blue, like this.

800: (250/365) Yara Yagi’s “Menaca”

Posted by wonko on September 7, 2017 in 365-2017, flower |

800 new models … let that sink in … 800 things I had not folded before – wow, just wow: I was looking around, as I do, for a model to fold today, I noticed on Fakebook that Winnie Leung from The Sydney Origami Group shared this photo-diagrammed model.

794: (244/365) From little things, big things grow

Posted by wonko on September 1, 2017 in 365-2017, nature, plant |

September 1 is often trotted out as the first day of Spring in the Southern Hemisphere: Purists will argue that the spring equinox is not until the 21st of September, but with the climate as it is, it has felt like spring for weeks now in Brisbane.

789: (239/365) Trojan Helmet

Posted by wonko on August 27, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern |

While scanning Deviantart for an entirely different reason (replying to comments on some of my works there) it’s algorithm decided I needed to see some of Cahoona’s folds and this delightful helmet was among them: Although it does not appear that way, this CP is deceptively simple. An offset waterbomb base and a colour change […]

784: (234/365) Fold-me Elmo

Posted by wonko on August 22, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Flipping through Tanteidan convention books I have I came across a delightful little figure that was screaming to be folded in orange: This is Riki Saito’s “Mr Puppet Man”, but I reckon he looks a lot like “Elmo” so I am calling it so. (On second thoughts, isn’t Elmo Red? Oh well, never mind)

780: (230/365) Bernie Peyton’s Woman In A Burqa

Posted by wonko on August 18, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Elected members of the senate have a responsibility to represent their constituents: When an elected member plans and then executes a stunt designed to trivialise, demonise and poke fun at an Islamic traditional garment some women choose to wear, I find deeply it offensive.

717: (167/365) Michael LaFosse’s Le Papillon de Nuit

Posted by wonko on June 16, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Le Papillon de Nuit translates, roughly as “The Night Butterfly” – a charming fold with a lovely detailed abdomen: Unlike the other La Fosse butterflies, this one works and then re-works layers on the wings, making the finished model smaller but unique in shape.

716: (166/365) Michael LaFosse’s Mudarri Luna Moth

Posted by wonko on June 15, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Catching up, finally, and continuing exploration of the form, this is a luna moth: apparently the main difference between a moth and a butterfly is that moths typically do not have winds that meet above the body – I may have just made that up: I like the slight “swallowtail” formation here – lots of […]
