858: (308/365) Pollywog

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, amphibian |

Sometime a simple model has a charm of its own: This tadpole is a relatively simple exercise in box pleating to isolate tail and back legs but the shaping is lovely.

857: (307/365) Maekawa’s One Sheet Flower Stalk

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, flower |

Many origami designers have tried to pack lots of details into the one sheet. I have folded Brian Chan’s One sheet Rose many times but I like the simplicity of this flower, stem and leaves: Using some interesting box pleating and colour management make a rather nice simple flower atop a divided stem and pair […]

850: (300/365) …and now the Penguin on your television set will explode.

Posted by wonko on October 27, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

…how’d he know that then? Being a fan of Monty Python, I find quotes emerge everywhere. What better to celebrate 300 models than a lovely little penguin: Designed by Jun Maekawa, I am amazed I have never folded this little cutie before, such a nice shape and, with presentation paper it would be a great […]

848: (298/365) Dogfight

Posted by wonko on October 25, 2017 in 365-2017, vehicle |

I am blessed to have friends who occasionally gather around an original board game from the 60’s and pit plane against plane in a WW2ish game of “Dogfight”: Tonight it was the valiant PDub against the Von Richtoffen Brothers, with much valiance on both sides, some gutsy moves and a bunch of squabbling like 4 […]

846: (296/365) Peacock 1

Posted by wonko on October 23, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

I gotta learn to be more careful, the previous post (which I removed the number from) turned out to be a refold from my first 365 (years ago) that I had forgotten about (I got the fold sequence from somewhere else and did not twig to the duplication … so sue me 😛 ) Fortunately […]

Triceratops

Posted by wonko on October 23, 2017 in dinosaur |

EDIT: as a kind reader pointed out, I have already folded this model, so it cannot count as one of the current 365. It is a relief on 2 fronts (1) Someone is reading and (2) This fold of this model is vastly superior to the original Some call me a dinosaur, they may be […]

842: (292/365) Divided Bowl

Posted by wonko on October 20, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes |

Doodling with a traditional birdbase, I noticed a way to open it up so there were 4 equal sized partitions that I could get to go flat: Researching a little, it seems Jun Maekawa pioneered this, and also suggested a lovely corner locking mechanism that made the whole structure quite stable. I can see this […]

841: (291/365) Shuriken

Posted by wonko on October 18, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Now I am pretty sure that “ninja stars” were not really a thing, but – meh: This rather charming woven six-pointed star is an interesting exercise in re-working a square into a windmill-like hexagonal base.

840: (290/365) Gaff’s Electric Sheep

Posted by wonko on October 17, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Origami has featured in cinema in many ways. The Blade Runner franchise uses origami figures to accentuate certain story points and the most recent movie features an elderly “Gaff”, in a retirement home, folding a sheep: After some research it seems the model was a tweaked Jun Maekawa model. tweaked because the original has curled […]

814: (264/365) Complementary Modular Octahedron

Posted by wonko on September 25, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Having recently realised I had forgotten to re-subscribe to JOAS, I hurriedly did so then went on holidays, fully expecting the back-issues of Tanteidan to not arrive for weeks: Due to the miracles of Australia post (or was that Japanese post and a courier?) they arrived while I was away, fortunately kept dry in my […]
