670: (120/365) Dear World Leaders

Posted by wonko on April 30, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, creepy crawly |

Dear Donald, Kim, Vladimir and others, I am writing to your parents regarding the bully tactics and macho posturing you seem to be engaging in while playing in the sandpit. This unacceptable behaviour has to STOP before someone gets hurt. It seems to me that the sand pit is large enough for you and all the other […]

669: (119/365) Lillian’s Butterfly

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

Dedicated to Lillian Oppenheimer, a luminary in the early ’70s Origami world, this butterfly, designed by Michael LaFosse is pretty neat: Interestingly, not poles apart in technique from “Alexander’s Swallowtail“, I chose different colours and was careful with the wing formation so it was morphologically distinct.

668: (118/365) LaFosse’s Origamido Butterfly

Posted by wonko on April 28, 2017 in animal, creepy crawly |

Continuing my exploration of Michael LaFosse’s Butterfly folds, I present the “Origamido” Butterfly: Named after his signature brand of hand-made paper (of which I have a couple of sheets yet to fold), this little butterfly is lovely – the wings seem delicate and the body seems in proportion and is colour changed.

667: (117/365) Alexander’s Swallowtail Butterfly

Posted by wonko on April 27, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, creepy crawly |

I must admit to never having folded any of Michael LaFosse’s designs, not sure why: I found a few designs that I thought I would like to have a go at – all butterflies, and this is one of them.

666: (116/365) Parent Teacher Interviews

Posted by wonko on April 26, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

As a teacher, we periodically get the opportunity to meet with parents of our students. Invariably they are interested in how their sons are going, how they went on the test and what can be done to continue to encourage them to give of their best: I actually like meeting with parents – they are great […]

664: (114/365) Compact Cow

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

  This is a simple water-bombic critter, from a family of compact animals designed by Perro Cerdito: I decided to fold the cow, from a collection that contained a dog (thing) and a cat-ish thing.

663: (113/365) Lil’ Lion

Posted by wonko on April 23, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal |

If you have not seen the movie “Lion” starring Dev Patel, you really should, it is a wild ride, lovely story and contains reference to an Indian name that means “Lion”: I have been looking for nice lion models and a friend on Fakebook (Oriol Esteve from Spain) graciously shared a recent design. I knew […]

660: (110/365) Riki Saito’s Alien

Posted by wonko on April 20, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, scifi, wtf |

It is late, I am tired, the first week back at the start of the term is exhausting but this little alien is looking after me: Folded from Japanese foil, it compliments yesterdays model. Incidentally today is a few days after the 56th anniversary of humans in space as Yuri Gagarin first left our atmosphere

659: (109/365) I WANT To Believe

Posted by wonko on April 19, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, scifi |

Now I am not so conceited as to think that humans are the only intelligent life in the universe, but the more I understand about humans, the more I am convinced that the sure proof there IS intelligent life elsewhere is the fact that they have in no way attempted to contact us. Nothing. Not […]

658: (108/365) Yoshizawa’s Goldfish

Posted by wonko on April 18, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

Few origami masters did more for modern origami than Yoshizawa Sensei: With delightfully few folds, his models evoke shapes, creatures and personalities.
