858: (308/365) Pollywog

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, amphibian |

Sometime a simple model has a charm of its own: This tadpole is a relatively simple exercise in box pleating to isolate tail and back legs but the shaping is lovely.

857: (307/365) Maekawa’s One Sheet Flower Stalk

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, flower |

Many origami designers have tried to pack lots of details into the one sheet. I have folded Brian Chan’s One sheet Rose many times but I like the simplicity of this flower, stem and leaves: Using some interesting box pleating and colour management make a rather nice simple flower atop a divided stem and pair […]

855: (305/365) White Rabbits!

Posted by wonko on November 1, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

As is customary on the first day of a new month, we say “white rabbits!”: This is an old design, and I am not sure i have the shaping quite right yet. Akira Yoshizawa is credited as founding modern Origami and this is one of his designs.

853: (303/365) Genie in a Lamp

Posted by wonko on October 30, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

…so if you found a magic lamp, rubbed it and a Genie appeared, granting you 3 wishes, what would you wish for?: It is an interesting, vaguely existential question that is remarkably difficult to answer with any certainty.

852: (302/365) Magic Carpet Ride

Posted by wonko on October 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, vehicle |

Go on, admit it. Ever since you saw the “Aladdin” movie you have secretly thought how cool it would be to ride on a magic carpet: This clever model, inexpertly folded, is an exercise in colour management- had I used bi-colour paper, the rider and carpet would be different colours – pretty neat.

850: (300/365) …and now the Penguin on your television set will explode.

Posted by wonko on October 27, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

…how’d he know that then? Being a fan of Monty Python, I find quotes emerge everywhere. What better to celebrate 300 models than a lovely little penguin: Designed by Jun Maekawa, I am amazed I have never folded this little cutie before, such a nice shape and, with presentation paper it would be a great […]

849: (299/365) Squirrel!

Posted by wonko on October 26, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

It is well known that dogs and middle school – squirrel! – children are easily distracted – Squirrel!: I am reminded of Doug the dog from the movie “UP” every time I see my students trying to focus but being unable to notice everything else around them but what they are asked to notice.

848: (298/365) Dogfight

Posted by wonko on October 25, 2017 in 365-2017, vehicle |

I am blessed to have friends who occasionally gather around an original board game from the 60’s and pit plane against plane in a WW2ish game of “Dogfight”: Tonight it was the valiant PDub against the Von Richtoffen Brothers, with much valiance on both sides, some gutsy moves and a bunch of squabbling like 4 […]

847: (297/365) Tigger

Posted by wonko on October 24, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Perusing my copy of Drawing Origami – Tome 2, I noticed a lovely little tiger designed by Oriol Esteve: This teensy weensy tiger is very cute, has resplendent stripes and terrific proportions from paws to tail.

846: (296/365) Peacock 1

Posted by wonko on October 23, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

I gotta learn to be more careful, the previous post (which I removed the number from) turned out to be a refold from my first 365 (years ago) that I had forgotten about (I got the fold sequence from somewhere else and did not twig to the duplication … so sue me 😛 ) Fortunately […]
