687: (137/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Rook

Posted by wonko on May 17, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Many battles need castles, chess is no exception: This is Max Hulme’s Castle, one of the few in his series folded from a square and fairly recognisable at a turret.

684: (134/365) Wise Owl

Posted by wonko on May 14, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Cruising Fakebook, as you do, it is often that you stumble across interesting folds (well, in my circle of friends it is): This is “Owl” by Angel Jacobo Figueroa Arriola. I spotted it as a photodiagram sequence in one of his galleries.

683: (133/365) Pet Gripe

Posted by wonko on May 13, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, mammal, nature |

Last weekend I mowed the lawn – that is not so much a revelation as a statement of fact – I enjoy mowing, always have. I do not, however, enjoy the “presents” that dog owners allow their pets to leave on my lawn: I recognise that part of the pleasure of owning a dog is […]

Struggling to make it through Friday, I stumbled across Sy Chen’s Hangman: This paper puzzle allows you to gradually reveal parts of a hangman, suitable for a table top game.

681: (131/365) Tim Rickman’s Xenomorph

Posted by wonko on May 11, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, humanoid, scifi |

I am so excited that there is a new Alien Movie out today – Alien Covenant. Although I would dearly love to see it right now, I will have to wait until I am less busy and tired: Having already folded both Kade Chan‘s Xenomorph, Fernando Gilgado‘s Alien and Face-Hugger I was struggling to find something […]

680: (130/365) Kade Chan’s Butterfly

Posted by wonko on May 10, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Continuing my exploration of the butterfly form, I was browsing Kade Chan’s amazing website and came across his design for a butterfly: A relatively simple fold that is really economic in its use of paper.

679: (129/365) Scorpion

Posted by wonko on May 9, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Cruising through my copy of “Origamania” by Lionel Albertino, I came across a little creepy crawley I had not folded: This scorpion is pretty clever – remarkably (by other scorpion standards) simple really for the effect, it efficiently creates the legs and leaves a nice body that can be made into a tail.

678: (128/365) Paper Ninja

Posted by wonko on May 8, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

The internet is an amazing thing, no sooner had I folded a model by Oriole Esteve, then he contacted me via Fakebook and offered me diagrams for a bunch of other folds: This is his Paper Ninja – a cunning little fellow that seems fairly stealthy.

677: (127/365) Hung Coung Nguyen’s Butterfly

Posted by wonko on May 7, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Continuing my exploration of origami butterfly form, I realised there were a bunch of folds from the book VOG2 that I had not attempted yet: I tortured a thin bit of hand-made washi for 2 hours, turning it inside out, backwards and every which way but the resultant form is lovely indeed.

675: (125/365) Centipede

Posted by wonko on May 5, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Gagging for complex folds I thought I would torture a bit of paper with a super complex model from Robert Lang’s “Origami Insects II”: The paper survived and the resultant creepy crawley is interesting if not perfect. Missing steps and powering on, only have to backtrack, characterised this mammoth 6 hour fold. Some steps are […]
