855: (305/365) White Rabbits!

Posted by wonko on November 1, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

As is customary on the first day of a new month, we say “white rabbits!”: This is an old design, and I am not sure i have the shaping quite right yet. Akira Yoshizawa is credited as founding modern Origami and this is one of his designs.

852: (302/365) Magic Carpet Ride

Posted by wonko on October 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, vehicle |

Go on, admit it. Ever since you saw the “Aladdin” movie you have secretly thought how cool it would be to ride on a magic carpet: This clever model, inexpertly folded, is an exercise in colour management- had I used bi-colour paper, the rider and carpet would be different colours – pretty neat.

850: (300/365) …and now the Penguin on your television set will explode.

Posted by wonko on October 27, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

…how’d he know that then? Being a fan of Monty Python, I find quotes emerge everywhere. What better to celebrate 300 models than a lovely little penguin: Designed by Jun Maekawa, I am amazed I have never folded this little cutie before, such a nice shape and, with presentation paper it would be a great […]

832: (282/365) “Love You Longtime”

Posted by wonko on October 9, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Apparently there is an Origami Olympiad – an annual internet competition where folders are pitted against a collection of challenging folds for points: This model is the first one from the IVth International Origami Internet Olympiad, a publication that contains other things I will try also.

826: (276/365) Pelican

Posted by wonko on October 3, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

What a wonderful bird is a Pelican, whose beak can hold more than it’s belly can: We saw lots of pelicans when on holiday up the mid-north coast in the holidays just ended. Majestic gregarious birds that seem to be an odd sum of parts.

823: (273/365) Owl

Posted by wonko on September 30, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Cruising through my copy of Drawing Origami (Tome 1), I noticed a bunch of folds from there that I had not yet tried: This little fellow is a bi-colour owl designed by Juan Hibou. Owls seem popular in origami design and this one cleverly manages layers and colours.

822: (272/365) Excalibur

Posted by wonko on September 29, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, wtf |

“The Lady of the Lake,… [angels sing] …her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. [singing stops] THAT is why I’m your king!”: “Listen, strange women, lyin’ in ponds, distributin’ swords is no basis for […]

819: (269/365) Jassu’s Dragonfly

Posted by wonko on September 26, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

I am finally back up to date with my 365 project after an unavoidable hiatus. This fold is taken from “Drawing Origami – Tome 2”, a charming figurative representation of a dragonfly: I like that the designer has distilled the essence of the critter down into it’s most recognisable features – body, head and wings. […]

818: (268/365) Simple Bat

Posted by wonko on September 26, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Amazed as I was with the postal response rate from Origamishop.com in France, my “Drawing Origami Tome 2” hardcover arrived before I got back from holidays. It is full of models for me to try, this is the first one in the book: A simple bat, made for duo paper, it looks a little more […]

815: (265/365) Pez 3

Posted by wonko on September 25, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

Browsing through Eduardo Clemente’s “Papiroflexia”, I am amazed at how prolific a designer he was, and how many variations on models he published: This is Pez#3 – a rather handsome fish with lovely colour changes.
