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

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.

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)

763: (213/365) There’s a Fly in my …

Posted by wonko on August 1, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Looking for something to fold that was vaguely “insecty”, I stumbled across a lovely box-pleated fly mangled from a 2×1 rectangle: Based on a 16×32 grid, we isolate head, legs, lovely plump abdomen and leave the back flap for a lovely set of wings.

As part of my JOAS membership, I get sent magazines with models to try – a really excellent collection of complex models from the worlds best designers. When I saw Satoshi Kamiya’s Dragonfly, I was really scared of it.The level of pleat management and re-arrangement of flaps and layers is truly terrifying when viewed as […]

500: Jackass

Posted by wonko on August 9, 2015 in wtf |

To celebrate the 500th unique fold documented on this blog, I thought I would hold a guessing game whilst trying a fold I have been considering for a while. This is “Horse Laugh” by Kunsulu Jilkishiyeva from Nicholas Terry’s “Drawing Origami Tome 1” – a fun fold that sees some amazing box pleating and layer […]

447: Black Forest Cuckoo Clock

Posted by wonko on August 3, 2013 in furniture, geometry, machine |

In need of some therapy, and with my procrastinator set on FULL, I embarked on a punishing box-pleating exercise: I remember as a kid in New Zealand we had a cheezy Cuckoo Clock (Mum loved it) that used to have metal pinecones as counterweights and a faux timber case that used to “cuckoo” and scare […]
