441: Ballerina Kit

Posted by wonko on May 5, 2013 in humanoid |

Most parents know little girls go through the “I want to be a Ballerina” stage: This is a wonderful thing; dance, culture, beauty and movement are all things that make our lives richer. Few go on to be professional ballet dancers (more’s the pity, few fit the fragile stick-insect archetype) but learning dance improves coordination, […]

409: Wedding Blossoms

Posted by wonko on October 1, 2012 in domestic, flower, plant |

A little over a year ago, my daughter as part of the very early planning stages for her wedding asked (in only the way a daughter can) if we could do something different with the flowers: After much looking around, experimentation and reject schemes we came up with a 5-sheet rose (4 2×1 rectangles for […]

406: Zombie Uprising

Posted by wonko on September 23, 2012 in fantasy, humanoid |

Trapped in a particularly uninteresting supervision (I am a teacher, sometimes we have to supervise other teacher’s classes), I began bending paper unsure what I was going to make. First I fashioned a hand, devising some lovely slender (skeletal almost) hands and looked at the paper I had left and then it came ot me […]

396: Cutting Out The Deadwood

Posted by wonko on June 13, 2012 in plant |

It is rare that an idea comes to me so fully formed as this, but I was doodling with a sheet of copy paper and started thinking about forming an organic shape, initially by crumpling (which is sort of cheating) and later via pleats: Nature is odd, working in 3’s and 5’s looks much more […]

385: Beer Mug/TeaCup

Posted by wonko on March 31, 2012 in domestic |

… so I was thinking through a waterproof container, being inspired by a paper cup I dismantled from a water cooler, and came across this design: Working with an A4 page, and inscribing, via a simple half-third intersection and some simple geometric construction, an octagonal base, sides radiating from it and pleats to tuck away […]

384: Squiffy “Woombye” Larch

Posted by wonko on March 31, 2012 in humanoid |

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 […]

380: Project Davros

Posted by wonko on March 4, 2012 in amphibian, creepy crawly, crustacean, humanoid, scifi |

I had this idea in my head that is should be possible to fold a DALEK (you know, that improbable plunger-wielding arch nemesis of Dr Who) from a single sheet of paper: I began over a two week period to explore the morphology of a Dalek, to come to the conclusion that it is most […]

377: Balthazaar Quercus

Posted by wonko on February 15, 2012 in humanoid |

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 […]

376: Langton Willow III

Posted by wonko on February 11, 2012 in blarg, humanoid |

Ladies and Gentleffolk, if I may be so bold as to introduce to you Mr Langton Willow III: …so I bought a lovely book about an Origamist I worship, Eric Joisel, and was scanning pages prior to an in-depth read and came accross what seemed like an impossibility – a dwarf in a box. There […]

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 […]
