866: (316/365) Iris Butterfly

Posted by wonko on November 12, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

The online Origami community is rich and supportive. Last night Kade Chan shared his publicly diagrammed “Iris Butterfly” diagrams via Fakebook and  knew I had to try it: I used a fake US dollar bill, but it is actually designed for a Hong Kong dollar (which I think is a little less long and a […]

680: (130/365) Kade Chan’s Butterfly

Posted by wonko on May 10, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Continuing my exploration of the butterfly form, I was browsing Kade Chan’s amazing website and came across his design for a butterfly: A relatively simple fold that is really economic in its use of paper.┬á

445: Mother of Dragons

Posted by wonko on July 10, 2013 in dinosaur, fantasy |

I was paper shopping, as you do (my daughter calls me a paper nerd) and stumbled across a hand-made sheet of blue embossed Lotka that reminded me of dragonscale: She who must be obeyed (SWMBO), an avid gamer and tamer of Dragons, had asked for a dragon so I put 2 and 2 together and […]

427: Geiger’s Xenomorph

Posted by wonko on January 14, 2013 in animal, creepy crawly, humanoid, scifi, wtf |

Anyone who knows me realises I am a huge fan of the Alien movies, the first one is, for me, close to perfect science fiction horror: I had been aware of Kade Chan’s Alien design for ages, had the crease pattern and wrestled many times trying to make it with no luck. I had relegated […]

317: Fiery Dragon

Posted by wonko on November 13, 2011 in dinosaur |

As a DnD fanatacist, I am always on the look out for a good Dragon – Kade Chan’s Fiery Dragon is one such beastie: Having loved folding Chan’s “Werewolf” I have had this model in the “must do” pile for months. WOW – to take an A3-cut square and twist it to this degree and […]

Little Red – Revisited

Posted by wonko on September 17, 2011 in humanoid |

Little Red was off to visit Kit: Oh Jake, what big eyes you have, what big ears you have, what big teeth you have… These are revisits of Stephen Weiss’ “Girl in a dress” and Kade Chan’s “Werewolf” for Kit and Jake. Lunch with friends, nice. Lunch with friends and their kids, even nicer ­čÖé

200: Hercules Beetle

Posted by wonko on July 19, 2011 in creepy crawly |

Wow, 200 days down so I thought I would try something special: Kade Chan is a design master, and this beetle is something I will fold again (only not with copy paper) – this lovely beetle is complete with lovely carapace and┬ámodeled┬ámandibles, all in very few folds. Simplicity and economy results in a rounded body […]

196: A Werewolf

Posted by wonko on July 15, 2011 in blarg, humanoid, mammal |

Now I have been a great fan of “Being Human” –┬áparticularly┬áthe character that plays the werewolf George: I found this astonishing model by Kade Chan purely by accident – I was googling the telly show to see if there were more episodes planned and found reference to this neato origami model of a werewolf, complete […]

137: Magic Ball

Posted by wonko on May 17, 2011 in geometry |

I saw this lovely bit of geometry and reasoned it was actually just a repetitive┬átessellation: The folds, whilst┬átiresome┬á(there are a lot of them) are not difficult if you are careful, but the collapse was a new form of torture – it took ages to get all the pleats into place, wrestling with such a flexy […]
