574: (24/365) A Cautionary Tale (Part 2)

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

…you went in, the water was fine. You notice a nice fishy, it seems to want to be friends: This is part 2 of a series by Fernando Gilgado, again, like part 1 it uses bicolour paper and clever colour changes to highlight details.

573: (23/365) A Cautionary Tale (Part 1)

Posted by wonko on January 23, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, fish, humanoid |

It is a beautiful day, waters clear, the water beckons, it would be wrong not to go for a swim. You put your toe in, the water is lovely, swimming gives you a new found freedom: This is part 1 of a 3 part story – what could possibly go wrong- we rarely see the […]

565: (15/365) Golden Carp

Posted by wonko on January 15, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, fish |

Leafing through “Folding Australia 2016”, the Sydney Origami Society Convention book (in which I have a model published :)) I came across a cute little carp designed by Mindaugas Cesnavicius: An ingenious design based on the pony base that teases lovely eyes and mouth, fins and a tail while managing the colour changes beautifully.

548: Making Your Dollar Go Further

Posted by wonko on October 23, 2016 in amphibian, fish, paper |

My son and his partner (Hi Matt and Alix!) came back from a recent trip to Canada and the US and had some greenbacks left over in their wallet. They are paper, you can fold them, there is a whole branch of Origami that does this intensively, led by artists like Won Park.

516: Jaws

Posted by wonko on December 12, 2015 in fish, geometry, nature |

In 1975, after finishing year 10, a friend (hey Brendan!) and I decided to cycle to the Sunshine Coast as “something to do” during the Christmas holidays. Living in Maleny, this was a journey but not really that far in retrospect, but on a bicycle in the middle of summer it was kind of madness.  Our bikes were […]

Schools In (swimming against the tide?)

Posted by wonko on October 18, 2015 in fish |

A good friend, Janet, found some marbled tie-dyed mulberry paper when she was recently in Bangkok, Thailand. Like a true maniac she carefully rolled and carried with her on her travels, returning to Australia she carefully transported it to a place I would also be (Townsville for a conference).  What commitment.

513: Koh’s Bubble-Eyed Goldfish

Posted by wonko on October 4, 2015 in fish |

Not quite sure how I missed this little beauty in the flurry of folding fishies, but Sensei Koh messaged me on fakebook and asked why I had not folded it. Truth is I was dazed and confused (and just a little fished out) and must have just missed it: That is a pity, this little […]

Posted by wonko on October 3, 2015 in fish |

Fun Fact – the collective noun for goldfish is either “Glint” or “Troubling” – now you know: Now to choose which of these will make it to the actual goldfish bowl – suggestions….?

512: Koh’s Blackmoor Goldfish

Posted by wonko on October 3, 2015 in fish |

Interestingly (for me), I have had goldfish over the years. At one stage I had a tank with 3 of these in it – Blackmoors – lovely plump little goggle-eyed black goldfish: I remember as they got sicker, they became less black until, as they floated upside down ready to be scooped and flushed to […]

511: Koh’s Tancho Oranda Goldfish

Posted by wonko on October 2, 2015 in fish |

A completely different folding technique was a nice change with this much tortured bit of paper: An odd-shaped goldfish, famously all white except for a colourful growth on the head, this thin-waisted fantail was actually really hard work even at this scale.
