147: Snoopy in the Doghouse

Posted by wonko on May 27, 2011 in mammal |

So tonight I went to see the School Musical with All Hallow’s School and St. Joes “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown”: The show was wonderful, congratulations to all involved on such a slick production. It reminded me of how charming the characters Charles M Schultz created all those years ago and how relevant their […]

134: Lang’s Tarantula

Posted by wonko on May 14, 2011 in creepy crawly |

When I first saw this model I knew it was going to be a tough one – so much paper compressed into such a compact model: I searched for some large format copy paper and an architect friend gave me some A1 80gsm, from which I cut an 80cm square (well, as I discovered when […]

121: Lang’s Rabbit

Posted by wonko on May 1, 2011 in mammal |

“White Rabbits” for this month is provided by Robert Lang: This beautiful rabbit is my¬†favorite¬†so far because of the shape and detail. This is the Year of the Rabbit also, a happy coincidence. As a first-fold, I found It torturous to fold – Mr Lang, your instructions 21-24 were baffling, and three times I put […]

93: Lang’s Pillbug

Now when I was a kid, ferreting around in the underbrush, we used to call these little chaps “Slaters”, as a Biology teacher, I referred to them as “Wood Lice”: These isopods were made famous by “A Bugs Life” – remember the foreign tumbling critters Tuck and Roll? They are a sort of primitive crustacean […]

80: Knut in Memoriam

Posted by wonko on March 21, 2011 in mammal |

To be honest I am not a great fan of Zoos, but in the case of Knut, a little Polar Bear cub rejected by it’s mother at birth, he would not have had 4 years of life in relative captive comfort. I have been wanting to try Robert Lang’s Bear, from the book “Origami Zoo” […]

78: Lang’s Butterfly

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

Although the wing-span of this model is quite large, for an A4 square-based model, the formation of the body using this paper was torturous at best. I am very happy, as a first-fold, to get something even vaguely butterfly shaped from this complex design. Having folded it once, I think I could do it much […]

64: KNL Dragon

Posted by wonko on March 5, 2011 in dinosaur |

wow, no again I mean WOW! This little beauty is another elegant example of Robert Lang’s extreme paper torture: I should have realised it was going to be tough when the head folding required fingernails and a magnifying glass to complete (yes, my A4 -cut square of photocopy paper was much smaller and I think […]
