920: Koala – A Possible Travel Fold

Posted by wonko on February 24, 2018 in animal, mammal, nature |

As I am about to embark on more world travel (see travelblog), I am on the lookout for a fold I can leave in each of the places we stay. Oddly, it is something I do, often hiding little Australiana figures in out of the way places,  to hopefully provide delightful surprises for subsequent guests: […]

918: Procrastination Panda

Posted by wonko on January 10, 2018 in mammal |

Now if we were looking for a mascot for procrastination, I think a panda is the perfect animal because, well, from all accounts, they just couldn’t give a flying f*ck: It seems they are endangered. My guess is it is due to them losing interest in most things (except eating bamboo) including sex – a […]

917: Triangular Mouse

Posted by wonko on January 10, 2018 in geometry, mammal |

It is a little known fact that mice used to originally be triangular – the closer to a right angle triangle, the more genetically successful apparently*: This charming model is designed by Makoto Yamaguchi, a quirky fold that I found when browsing Tanteidan 106.

Posted by wonko on December 30, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, fantasy, mammal |

Riccardo Foschi has a magic sense of design in his models, and this cartoon rabbit is a real charmer: As an exercise in box pleating, this model takes a 12 x 24 square grid and, via a. Are fully designed collapse teases arms, legs, tummy and detailed head while providing enough paper to model those […]

913: (363/365) When you wish upon a Star …

Posted by wonko on December 29, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

So when I asked for suggestions on what to fold, Janet suggested a Starfish which prompted me to try Riccardo Foschi’s model: Made from a pentagon, a lovely little fold that has some charming qualities.

911: (361/365) Tiny Teddy

Posted by wonko on December 27, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

There are many bears out there in the origami design community, and I have folded most of them: This is Robyn Glynn’s “Teddy”, a charming bi-color fold that looks cuddly and seems quite poseable.

…and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except for a mouse: Prep for festivities is always fun. Family feast tomorrow, lots to do. I hope you and your families enjoy the prep time as much as the day itself.

907: (357/365) Mr Origami

Posted by wonko on December 23, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Always on the look out for a model that somehow incorporates traditional cranes (Tsuru), I stumbled across this design and knew I had to try it: A clever pre-folding sequence caches paper that later emerges as “bird-baseable” end points you can locate at the ends of arms.

906: (356/365) Top of the Food Chain

Posted by wonko on December 22, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, fish |

As custodians of this planet, we do a pretty lousy job overall at looking after it. We see apex predators as threats and demonise them for acting naturally in their own domain: In Australia, we employ shark nets which each year kill more OTHER things things than keep out sharks – time to think more […]

905: (355/365) Emperor Palpatine

Posted by wonko on December 21, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, scifi |

I am sure you remember the good old days, when things were better. In the Star Wars Universe this meant Luke, Leia and Han battling the dark side of the force wearing cheesy costumes, in squeeky clean spaceships, among a rain of pew pew pew: The truth is there were no “good old days”, they […]
