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 […]

363: Tree of Wisdom

Posted by wonko on December 29, 2011 in bird, plant |

You know that feeling when you plan (and see quite clearly in your head) something and then it turns out exactly like you envisaged it? This is one of those moments: I had a model fail on a large sheet of lithography paper and considered binning the resultant crumpled mess, but remembered an origami technique […]

341: Jolly Roger

Posted by wonko on December 7, 2011 in humanoid |

Now I do not know much about pirates, nor why a skeletal chap called Roger should be jolly, but there you go: When I first saw Hojyo Takashi’s 3d looking skull I knew I had to try it. A torturous box pleat in 12ths, the collapse to get the face right was nearly as complicated […]

328: Superdude

Posted by wonko on November 24, 2011 in humanoid |

Now I tried something, for the first time ever. I planned a NEW model, then folded it in prototype, then adjusted the proportions and now there is a NEW ORIGAMI FIGURE in the world – cool hey: I must admit to giggling when it just sort of … worked. I then got the class (who […]

221: Census Night

Posted by wonko on August 9, 2011 in blarg |

Tonight is Census Night – lots of demographic questions and a bunch of boxes to tick: Naturally I wracked my brain as to what to fold on such an occasion (it only happens every 5 years or so) and drew a blank, then thought of the response style for some questions and that was my […]

178: Scuba Steve

Posted by wonko on June 27, 2011 in humanoid |

Now I was watching this stop motion animation by Sipho Mabona, and saw a humanoid emerge from a sheet of paper, so began doodling with a square of parchment not really having any plan. Oddly a figure emerged with what looked (to me at least initially) like a shell on his back. Immediately I thought […]

173: Siberian Hamster

Posted by wonko on June 22, 2011 in mammal |

Manuel emphatically suggests “Is no rat, is “Siberian Hampster, man is shop tell me” he insists – it cracks me up every time: Fawlty Towers is not a show I can watch anymore, but a beloved memory is Manuel’s pet, “Basil” the rat, so I made one. Curious and torturous fold this one – I […]

168: Tulips for Jo

Posted by wonko on June 17, 2011 in flower |

Today is my Wife’s Birthday, her favourite flower is a tulip so I had an idea: After researching tulips suitable to stick on a card, I discovered that none were suitable so I invented a fold for that, then I decided that real-size tulips were also a good idea – a dozen a piece I […]
