700: (150/365) Little Bear

Posted by wonko on May 30, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Trolling through the interwebs, as you do, you oft come across things that you save for later: This “Little Bear” is a simple model (I have little time today) that I had saved for later but do not know who the designer is, sorry.

683: (133/365) Pet Gripe

Posted by wonko on May 13, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, mammal, nature |

Last weekend I mowed the lawn – that is not so much a revelation as a statement of fact – I enjoy mowing, always have. I do not, however, enjoy the “presents” that dog owners allow their pets to leave on my lawn: I recognise that part of the pleasure of owning a dog is […]

678: (128/365) Paper Ninja

Posted by wonko on May 8, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

The internet is an amazing thing, no sooner had I folded a model by Oriole Esteve, then he contacted me via Fakebook and offered me diagrams for a bunch of other folds: This is his Paper Ninja – a cunning little fellow that seems fairly stealthy.

672: (122/365) Lang’s Butterfly

Posted by wonko on May 2, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Continuing on the theme of butterflies, I could not go past this one, designed by Robert Lang: Taken from “Origami Insects II”, it is one of a number of creepy crawlys that I have yet to fold from this book.

669: (119/365) Lillian’s Butterfly

Posted by wonko on April 29, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Dedicated to Lillian Oppenheimer, a luminary in the early ’70s Origami world, this butterfly, designed by Michael LaFosse is pretty neat: Interestingly, not poles apart in technique from “Alexander’s Swallowtail“, I chose different colours and was careful with the wing formation so it was morphologically distinct.

666: (116/365) Parent Teacher Interviews

Posted by wonko on April 26, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

As a teacher, we periodically get the opportunity to meet with parents of our students. Invariably¬†they are interested in how their sons are going, how they went on the test and what can be done to continue to encourage them to give of their best: I actually like meeting with parents – they are great […]

652: (102/365) Sleep In

Posted by wonko on April 12, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, humanoid |

Now you are set to sleep in, for the first time in ages right? Your neighbour, bless him, decides this morning is the time to chainsaw and woodchip the hedgerow: As amusing as this sounds, this actually¬†happened to me this morning. Coincidentally I had just completed Fernando Gilgado’s “Sleeping In” model – seems the universe […]

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

Posted by wonko on March 30, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

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 […]
