695: (145/365) Knight in Shining Armor

Posted by wonko on May 25, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

Jono sent me a link to the new trailer for the coming series of Game of Thrones: Seems like big things are set to happen in the seven kingdoms. Knights in shining armor in this series are rarely shiny at all, often dirty, lacking honor and glory – such is the reality of war.

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 […]

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 […]

574: (24/365) A Cautionary Tale (Part 2)

Posted by wonko on January 24, 2017 in 365-2017, fish, humanoid |

…you went in, the water was fine. You notice a nice fishy, it seems to want to be friends: This is part 2 of a series by Fernando Gilgado, again, like part 1 it uses bicolour paper and clever colour changes to highlight details.

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 […]

503: Man and Woman

Posted by wonko on August 23, 2015 in humanoid, nature, paper |

Flipping through an obscure copy of Papiroflexia Bicolour by Fernando Gilgado, I was struck with a pair of … models that looked like fun to make. I had some small (10in) squares of handmade Kozo left over from the eagle fold and thought I would give it a whirl. The fun and hilarity began – […]

457: Happy Book (WTF#18)

Posted by wonko on October 2, 2013 in fantasy, wtf |

Fernando Gilgado is a legendary character folder, I have made many of his models, this one is a charmer: from one sheet of paper, you get 6 pages, a hard cover, arms, legs, a smile and eyes peeping over the top – neat So, as I mark furiously (having run out of the ability to […]

334: The DEVIL is in the DETAIL

Posted by wonko on November 30, 2011 in blarg, humanoid |

I have grown to respect a number of designers of all nationalities and Fernando Gilgado from Spain is one who is guaranteed to produce a challenging model: This is the Demon, and the devil in the details, trust me – his head alone is frightening – 2 sets of horns, beard, snarly mouth, eyes etc. […]

281: The Jester

Posted by wonko on October 8, 2011 in humanoid |

Throughout history, people have acted “the fool” for many and varied reasons. In medieval court, Jesters acted the fool in a bid for self-preservation and increased favour: All too often the jester is actually pretty bright, but uses that intelligence to work out ways of appearing foolish, doing comically silly things and overtly hiding in plain sight. […]
