645: (95/365) Peacock

Posted by wonko on April 8, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

A model I had mastered as a child was the only Peacock I had seen folded until fairly recently: This is Edwin Corrie’s Peacock, a magic little model that makes a tight efficient little body out of one corner of the square leaving lots of paper for the fan-shaped tail.

639: (89/365) Baby TRex

I am sure dinosaurs were not cute – not even baby ones as they were snappy wild beasts: The little purple beauty is designed by Issei Yoshino and is a lovely exercise in colour management.

626: (76/365) Little Snail

Posted by wonko on March 17, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Spirals have most recently been explored by Tomoko Fuse, but lovely spiral shail shells have existed in traditional origami for a long while before that: This is Eduardo Clemente’s snail, well, one of them. As a bi-colour model it cleverly manages the 2 colours ensuring the soft slippy bit of the snail is one colour […]

622: (72/365) Nesting

Posted by wonko on March 13, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Sometimes tending the nest is more important than what is happening elsewhere: This is Edwardo Clemente’s “Mother Bird” (I think that is what it is called, it is all in Spanish) and is a charming little bi-colour model that manages to tease a lovely flappy mother twitter bird, a pair of hungry chicks and a […]

590: (40/360) Daisy

Posted by wonko on February 9, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, nature |

“Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do. I’m half crazy….”: There were fewer chilling cinematic moments than the last conscious moments of HAL, the conflicted computer in Kubrick’s 2001 A Space Odyssey. The slow disappearance of cognisance is so beautifully portrayed.

582: (32/365) Flapping Bird wearing a Tsuru Costume

Posted by wonko on February 1, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Those of you familiar with a traditional crane (Tsuru) will notice this one is a little odd – that is because it is folded on top of/inside a flapping bird: This is an ingenious and complicated fold, for bi-colour paper that cleverly interweaves one model in the other. In the 3D photo below you can […]

576: (26/365) Ornithorhynchus

Posted by wonko on January 26, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, Crease Pattern, fantasy, mammal |

It is a little known fact that people will believe just about anything. Tell them that a furry, egg laying, duck-billed, webbed footed, egg laying, pouch carrying mammal that lives in burrows underwater and protects itself with poisonous spines … and they believe it: There are few things more distinctly Australian then the Ornithorhynchus (colloquially called a “Platypus”) […]

575: (25/365) A Cautionary Tale (Part 3)

Posted by wonko on January 25, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, fish, humanoid |

Look away, look away … we are going to need a bigger boat: Interestingly, people’s opinions of sharks in Australia, particularly by those who do not live here, varies from reality markedly. One would believe, if one believed what you see in the media, that sharks are a problem, everyone gets attacked – this is […]

573: (23/365) A Cautionary Tale (Part 1)

Posted by wonko on January 23, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, fish, humanoid |

It is a beautiful day, waters clear, the water beckons, it would be wrong not to go for a swim. You put your toe in, the water is lovely, swimming gives you a new found freedom: This is part 1 of a 3 part story – what could possibly go wrong- we rarely see the […]

572: (22/365) Origami On The Brain

Posted by wonko on January 22, 2017 in bird, geometry, humanoid, paper |

Those who know me realise I am a little obsessed with paper folding, some would say to excess. The truth of the matter is I am constantly amazed what you can coax a flat sheet to do. I think I missed my calling as a materials engineer: I like models that I can visualise, as I […]
