Ladies and Gentlefolk, may I introduce young Squiffy Larch, “Woombye” to his friends: During a mad weekend, we visited Woombye Pub for a fantastic lunch and I noticed they put on their square tables, a beautiful big square of brown paper. Naturally I put 2 and 2 together and got 7, and decided it needed […]

382: Self Made Man – Revisited

Posted by wonko on March 19, 2012 in blarg, humanoid |

I was determined to test whether my first fold of this nightmarish, but charming, fold was merely a fluke or not, so I set about folding it from a 3×5 cut from an A1 sheet. The geometry for this model is amazing, and the challenge is to only put in the folds that are necessary […]

So, it emerges that Dweezil has a little brother. Ladies and Gentleffolk, if I may introduce Master Balthazaar Quercus, aged 6¾: I was asked to liberate this cute little chap from the flat sheet of lithography paper he was trapped in as a parting gift for a colleague. Aware this may create precedent, this is […]

365: Turn a New Leaf

Posted by wonko on December 31, 2011 in humanoid |

Our lives are a lot like a blank sheet of paper – WE decide when to put creases, who adds folds, how permanent they are and we are constantly given a fresh sheet to start over: This is my interpretation of Eric Joisel’s “Self-Made Man”, a little origami man that is folding himself and I […]

I found a hand-drawn crease pattern by the late, great Eric Joisel – I had been hankering after his dwarves you see and wondered how the heck […]
