868: (318/365) Memory Like A Goldfish

Posted by wonko on November 14, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

It is a commonly held belief that Goldfish have a short-lived memory: I have no idea if this is true, but suspect it is complete bunk.

863: (313/365) Casa Blanca

Posted by wonko on November 9, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I always find it remarkable that with relatively few folds, we can hint at a shape so familiar that our minds go nuts and full in the visual context: This is Roman Diaz’s “Casa Illusione”, a faux 3D dwelling that nicely plays with light, angle, perspective and proportion. I chose to fold it white (Casa […]

803: (253/365) Roman Diaz’s Owl

Posted by wonko on September 10, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

There are many approaches to folding owls, all concentrate on the eyes and head structure: This fold takes you on quite a ride. Diagrams taken from “Drawing Origami Tome 1”, the folding sequence is clear and rich, but I am sure my next fold of this model will be better as I now know what […]

713: (163/365) Roman Diaz’s Goat

Posted by wonko on June 12, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, mammal |

Scrumbling through my “must fold list” I came across a curious hand-drawn diagram set from Spain and decided to give it a whirl: After much torturing (I started with a 35cm square) the result is a rather lovely goat. I think this is my favourite farmyard animal so far – lovely proportions, fantastic modelling potential.

369: A Wren

Posted by wonko on January 7, 2012 in bird |

Took a leisurely walk through some rainforest and noticed these perfect blue wrens, flitting from trunk to vine: Exploring a new book called Origami Essence by Roman Diaz, this little beauty was amongst the models I have decided to try. I like the “wrenny”ness of this model. Some lovely techniques here for this keeper of […]

368: Brent The Unicorn

Posted by wonko on January 7, 2012 in mammal |

Now I am aware that a certain “Brent” recently had a birthday, and on that birthday I folded a creepy crawly, so thought it appropriate to counter the scary with “unicorns and rainbows”: This is Roman Diaz’s Unicorn, lovely thing – mane, tail, beautiful ears, splendid horn. Happy Birthday (all be it belated) Michael the […]

362: Young Buck

Posted by wonko on December 28, 2011 in mammal |

Amongst the plethora of models I still have not yet tried, there are some beauties: This is Roman Diaz’s Deer and it is a lovely specimen indeed. 10 points on his antlers, proud stance and a spring in his step. This model, though lovely, was a cow to fold – hand drawn instructions that were […]

351: Diaz’s Stallion

Posted by wonko on December 17, 2011 in mammal |

Roman Diaz is one of many talented Spanish origamists and with this model he captures something of the proud noble stallion: there is much to like about this model – apart from it being a nifty use of the fish/camel base, the posture, proportions and attitude evident in the horse are present in this little […]

306: Wolf Alarm

Posted by wonko on November 2, 2011 in mammal |

At 5:30am every morning, the dog next door explodes in a flurry of barking and howling – I call this our “wolf alarm”: I think it is in response to an early morning walker on the street beyond, regardless it wakes me from my light sleep and I struggle to return after the wolf alarm […]

275: Moo Cow

Posted by wonko on October 2, 2011 in mammal |

It is a well known fact that I am a little obsessed with all things Cow. I used to have a plush cow (called Terry the Moo) but I loaned her to a student who cared about her less than I do and now she is lost: A paper replacement is no real substitute but […]
