Morning Light with Dragon Head

Posted by wonko on December 11, 2017 in blarg, fantasy |

Revisiting a fold I achieved 3 years ago, I was struck with the dramatic lighting caused by an accidental reflection on our wooden floor and resultant shadow: You know when you see something amazing and cannot quite believe it was you who made it? I seem to be surrounded with such moments.

821: (271/365) Satoshi Kamiya’s Ant

Posted by wonko on September 28, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

After re-subscribing to JOAS, in record time my back-issues of the Tanteidan magazine arrived and along with one of them, a really challenging diagram: About 170 steps, extreme paper torture and, as a project, something truly terrifying but I knew I needed to try it.

709: (159/365) Satoshi Kamiya’s Tsuru Rose

Posted by wonko on June 8, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, geometry |

I am nothing if not determined at times. This  model has beaten me many times but, due to a perfect storm it seemed to just happen in my hands: This is Satoshi Kamiya’s “Tsuru Rose” – an odd but beautiful combination of a Kawasaki rose twist in the body segment of a traditional Tsuru.

549: Fluffy the Cerberus

Posted by wonko on October 30, 2016 in animal, fantasy, mammal |

Fans of Harry Potter will recognised “Fluffy” the 3-headed dog, Hagrid’s pet (oops, just outed myself as a Potter nerd). This is Satoshi Kamiya’s “Cerberus”, a rendition of a mythical beast that is an amazing design that in the end is really really fiddly.

505: Dragonfly

Posted by wonko on September 22, 2015 in creepy crawly, flower, nature |

As part of my JOAS membership, I get sent magazines with models to try – a really excellent collection of complex models from the worlds best designers. When I saw Satoshi Kamiya’s Dragonfly, I was really scared of it.The level of pleat management and re-arrangement of flaps and layers is truly terrifying when viewed as […]

Copper Dragon

As you may have guessed from subsequent posts, I have been learning to fold Satoshi Kamiya’s Ryujin 3.5: After a year of lessons, learning bits of the model and patiently/painstakingly working on each of the elements of the design, I managed to combine all onto one model.

496: Satoshi Kamiya’s Ryujin 3.5

Posted by wonko on March 24, 2015 in dinosaur, fantasy |

On March 21, 2014, I began a quest to learn how to fold Satoshi Kamiya’s “Ryujin 3.5”, and was lucky enough to be accepted as a pupil of Mr Daniel Brown (MrOrigami). Daniel sent me a lesson, I had to perform the illustrated tasks and photo my evidence back to him before he sent me […]

… there be Dragons!

Posted by wonko on December 21, 2014 in animal, dinosaur, fantasy |

For much of the past year (2014) I have been learning how to fold Satoshi Kamiya’s Ryujin 3.5, as taught to me via a series of lessons cunningly devised by Daniel Brown (Mr Origami). I started this project on March 21. This is Part 3 of a series that also includes Part 1, Part 2 Lesson […]

Ryujin 3.5 (continued)

Posted by wonko on August 16, 2014 in animal, fantasy, paper, wtf |

After much care and attention, diligently following expert lessons (courtesy of MrOrigami’s Daniel Brown), I have managed to successfully navigate lessons 1-11 in what promises to be an ever intensifying journey towards understanding the whole model. This is PART 2 of a previous post. Part 3 also exists. Along the way I have learned a LOT […]

477: Rooster

Posted by wonko on June 29, 2014 in bird |

I want an origami rooster (in red) to live somewhere in our new kitchen, so set about exploring rooster form with a pair of masters and their individual approaches to rooster form: I “warmed up” with an Eric Joisel “Le Coq” – a fold I had tried years ago and not really mastered so I […]
