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 […]

900: (350/365) Calamari

Posted by wonko on December 16, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, fish, nature |

I stumbled across a “dollar fold” designed by Daniel Brown and decided to try it: An interesting exercise in sinking, point isolation and layer management, this charming squid looks fresh enough to cook.

868: (318/365) Memory Like A Goldfish

Posted by wonko on November 14, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

It is a commonly held belief that Goldfish have a short-lived memory: I have no idea if this is true, but suspect it is complete bunk.

831: (281/365) Swimming Fishie

Posted by wonko on October 8, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

Perusing my copy of Tanteidan Magazine #163, I came across a cute 2-part model that I thought I should try: Using orange for the fish and blue for the waves seemed to make sense at the time.

815: (265/365) Pez 3

Posted by wonko on September 25, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

Browsing through Eduardo Clemente’s “Papiroflexia”, I am amazed at how prolific a designer he was, and how many variations on models he published: This is Pez#3 – a rather handsome fish with lovely colour changes.

PART 2: THE LLAMA, LIVE FROM GOLDERS GREEN The llama is a quadruped which lives in big rivers like the Amazon. It has two ears, a heart, a forehead, and a beak for eating honey, but it is provided with fins for swimming. Llamas are bigger than frogs.

810: (260/365) Pez

Posted by wonko on September 24, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

In catch-up mode, this is Eduardo Clement’s “Pez”: A delightful fish fold that is designed for paper that is the same colour both sides. A charming fold from his book Papiroflexia. relevant because we recently spent time on the waters of Hervey Bay (yes, we did see whales, but yeah)

752: (202/365) Riccardo Foschi’s Koi

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

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.

736: (186/365) Stoopid Monkey!

Australian politicians are a weird lot. Not “American” (shoot first then barbeque something) weird, just an odd lurch from crisis to crisis and stab your mate in the back for a shot at leadership kind of weird: A recently deposed Prime Minister (Mr Tony Abott) is being a bit of an arse clown in the […]

735: (185/365) Flipper!

Posted by wonko on July 4, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

What’s that Flipper? Timmy has fallen out of his boat and is surrounded by sharks? You get the coastguard and I will get the anti-shark spray: An irrational tale of a Dolphin and his stupid pet human. I do not know about you but I grew up on cheesy American telly – Flipper, Brady Bunch, […]
