I was determined to test whether my first fold of this nightmarish, but charming, fold was merely a fluke or not, so I set about folding it from a 3×5 cut from an A1 sheet.
The geometry for this model is amazing, and the challenge is to only put in the folds that are necessary to achieve the collapse – an interesting challenge indeed as construction lines, preliminary constructions and fold-flow ons are difficult to control with such large format paper.
I love the result, given this paper was thinner than the original #365 fold, the features and structure are much more considered and I think he has a lot more character in his face and pose.
This is one of my favourite folds from last year, and now I know it was not a fluke, I can fold it with confidence when I need to.
He is now on proud (temporary) display in the Library, with a suitable verse before him.
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 🙂
