842: (292/365) Divided Bowl

Posted by wonko on October 20, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes |

Doodling with a traditional birdbase, I noticed a way to open it up so there were 4 equal sized partitions that I could get to go flat: Researching a little, it seems Jun Maekawa pioneered this, and also suggested a lovely corner locking mechanism that made the whole structure quite stable. I can see this […]

841: (291/365) Shuriken

Posted by wonko on October 18, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Now I am pretty sure that “ninja stars” were not really a thing, but – meh: This rather charming woven six-pointed star is an interesting exercise in re-working a square into a windmill-like hexagonal base.

840: (290/365) Gaff’s Electric Sheep

Posted by wonko on October 17, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Origami has featured in cinema in many ways. The Blade Runner franchise uses origami figures to accentuate certain story points and the most recent movie features an elderly “Gaff”, in a retirement home, folding a sheep: After some research it seems the model was a tweaked Jun Maekawa model. tweaked because the original has curled […]

838: (288/365) Maine Lobster

Posted by wonko on October 15, 2017 in 365-2017, crustacean |

A 365 Challenge is a mixture of blessing and curse: The relentless schedule amidst a full time job and part time life is challenging at times. I started this model last weekend but ran out of weekend before it was finished.

837: (287/365) Jackson’s Chameleon

Posted by wonko on October 14, 2017 in 365-2017, reptile |

Looking for a nice, rich, challenging fold for the day, I knew I needed to try a model from Robert Lang: This is his model “Jackson’s Chameleon” – a deliciously complicated model with all the chameleonic bits you expect. Working with a slightly un-square square of light green washi, the pre-folding is fascinating, layer management […]

836: (286/365) Pteranodon

Posted by wonko on October 14, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

I for one think collectors of fossils need to be really careful piecing together extinct animals from scant remains. Many a time illogical collections of bones have been cobbled together to bamboozle the public and, at first glance, a Pteranodon seems about illogical as a platypus.

835: (285/365) Coyote

Posted by wonko on October 14, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

It is a full moon, 24 miles south of the OKish Corral, and the local Coyotes are howling: This rather cute wolf/dog/coyote…thing is a rather nicely structured quadruped that I think is a useful base for modelling other such critters. It is part of a collection of wolves/howling things I looked out for when a […]

834: (284/365) Swallow

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

I know, I am behind, but have been inexplicably tired of late, time to catch up: This is a swallow, or more correctly a mud lark, but is a fun fold from DOT1 that I was going to try.

830: (280/365) Crab

Posted by wonko on October 7, 2017 in 365-2017, crustacean |

Exploring Drawing Origami Tome 2, I found this lovely little crab: Designed by Fernando Castellano, it cleverly divides up a waterbomb base into legs and nippers, isolating them from the body.

828: (278/365) Spaniel

Posted by wonko on October 5, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Busy week, nearly at the weekend, this lovely little fold is a perfectly adorable spaniel: Designed by Patricia Kunz Tomic, in DOT1, I like the use of paper, general proportions and general spanielity.
