765: (215/365) I’m the king of the CASTLE …

Posted by wonko on August 3, 2017 in 365-2017, animal |

Continuing the exploration of court pieces, we move on from the Pawn to the Rook or Castle: I like this series – there is a visual similarity with the bases on all of these pieces and the tops are fairly easy to recognise. this one has a simple geometric turret atop the pillar.

764: (214/365) We are all Pawns

Posted by wonko on August 2, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic |

We begin another Chess set, this time designed by Mark Kirschenbaum. This is his Pawn: A lovely little figurative foot soldier, lovely circular base and an interesting fold.

760: (210/365) Akiko Yamanashi’s Scallop Box

To celebrate the 201st fold in this challenge, I was looking for a shellfish-based fold – not sure why but there you go: Leafing through a Tanteidan Convention book, I came across a “Scallop Box” design designed by Akiko Yamanashi.

754: (204/365) Gaff’s Blade Runner Chicken

Posted by wonko on July 23, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, bird, fantasy |

My top 5 movies of all time includes the Sci-Fi classic “Blade Runner”. A couple of times during the movie, to confirm a character’s opinion of Deckard’s actions, his sidekick “Gaf” left an origami figure: One was actually folded by the actor (Edward James Olmos) – a gum wrapper was fashioned into a Chicken. He […]

752: (202/365) Riccardo Foschi’s Koi

It was late, I was tired and I must admit to going to bed before folding yesterday. Full week, new levels of fatigue: I found these diagrams on Pinterest – seems they are test diagrams (oops, sorry) but I love the shape and model structure.

751: (201/365) Pushing Shiz Uphill

Posted by wonko on July 20, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, creepy crawly |

Sometimes work can be busy. When spares are sparse, classes all doing new/complex things and physical exertion hit their peak, sometimes you can feel like you are pushing shiz up hill: This is a lovely little dung beetle, coveting it’s little ball of dung. It is a charming fold that I was unsure if I […]

747: (197/365) Root Veg

Posted by wonko on July 16, 2017 in 365-2017, plant |

Winter is for hearty food, stews and seasonal root veg: With such open food importing and trade however we see every vegetable and fruit available all year round. Peru grows my Asparagus, Venezuela exports my Fennel and China supplies my Carrots at the moment.

746: (196/365) Fairly Bloody Long Walk

Posted by wonko on July 15, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, wtf |

My lovely daughter walked for charity last year and I was so proud of her (secretly regretting not doing it with her). This year, the same walk is on offer at, thankfully, at a much cooler time of year so we are both walking “The Bloody Long Walk” in early August: Today, as part of […]

744: (194/365) Wizard’s Hat

Posted by wonko on July 13, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, geometry |

Anyone who has seen any of the “Lord of the Rings/Hobbit” movies will recognise the profile of this hat: Gandalf the Grey wore a wondrous felt hat like this, Mike Luo’s “Witches Hat”.

743: (193/365) Sleepy Cat

Posted by wonko on July 12, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Origami cats are hard – their soft elastic ways are difficult to depict artistically with a medium as stiff and uniform as paper: This is Christophe Boudias’ “Sleepy Cat”, a lovely model that I think manages to capture the posture of a cat that is cuddling up ready to sleep, tucking it’s little pawsies under its […]
