705: (155/365) Jo Nakashima’s Monkey

Posted by wonko on June 4, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

This adorable cheeky monkey is a masterpiece of design: Using the back colour of the paper to highlight the face and ears, then working a nice body, lovely long tail and all.

600: (50/365) A Shedload of Models

Posted by wonko on February 19, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, wtf |

For those of you keeping up, you will notice SOME of the posts on this blog have numbers. The first number (in this case 600) represents a catalogue of sorts – it documents the number of new models that I have never folded, before documenting it here: Jo Nakashima’s “6” is new for me, the […]

Working in the same school for 28 years makes me feel a little like a dinosaur at times: This is Jo Nakashima’s TRex – a lovely little cartoony Trex that is fun to fold and simple enough to do with smaller coloured squares. I followed along with the video tutorial on Jo’s Youtube channel.

I am currently learning how to fold Satoshi Kamiya’s Ryu Jin 3.5.  As part of that fold, “waterbomb tesselation” scales are made and shaped. I need practice so I am looking for scaley applications of this technique. I remember ages ago folding Davor Vinko’s catfish and seeing a video by Jo Nakashima on how to incorporate […]

383: Slinky

Posted by wonko on March 20, 2012 in geometry |

Now I am a fan of a simple but effective modular, and this one is a lot of fun: Modelled after a spring-slinky, designed with skill by Jo Nakashima, it stretches, falls and steps like the real thing. Using remarkably simple modules, each from a small square, the structure begins to behave when there is […]
