933: David Brill’s “Robin”

Posted by wonko on August 11, 2018 in bird |

I have been a fan of David Brill’s designs ever since I read his book “Brilliant Origami”. Such a lovely touch, breathing life into paper: This Robin is delightful – I saw hand-drawn diagrams on David’s website and then professionally drawn diagrams in the latest Tanteidan Magazine and knew I needed to try it. I […]

932: Clever Girl

Posted by wonko on August 2, 2018 in dinosaur |

In a classic scene from the first Jurassic Park movie, a hunter realises he has just been surrounded by hungry, angry velociraptors, and utters the words “clever girl” before being ripped to shreds: This delightful mode is really simple to fold, and belongs to that stable of models whose proportions are perfect, detail is sufficient, […]

912: (362/365) Abandon Ship!

Posted by wonko on December 28, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, vehicle |

As the year 2017 swiftly comes to an end, after seemingly being in a hurry to do so all year, it is almost time to abandon ship: Time for one last waltz, one more visit to the buffet, perhaps a cigar on the poop deck then it is lifejackets on and over the side into […]

910: (360/365) After Christmas Sales

Posted by wonko on December 26, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, domestic |

Retailers really have a nerve when you think about it. Right up to Christmas they hike up their prices. We dutiful drones pay top dollar for loot which we wrap and give away. Come “Boxing Day” prices plummet in almost obscene ways and it can get hectic as people clamber for bargains: We went early, […]

892: (342/365) Inflatable Stellated Octahedron

Posted by wonko on December 8, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I like a model that is a simple variation of the waterbomb and this is such a thing: Pre-creasing before locking together creates the facets when the solid is inflated.

889: (339/365) Sitting Duck

Posted by wonko on December 5, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

There has been a lot of talk in the media about people demonstrably doing the wrong thing, over a really long period of time. Interesting that one of the defences offered was that they were a “sitting duck” in the post-weinstein era. Regardless, a backyard should be a safe place to play: This is Henry […]

879: (329/365) No Crib for a Bed

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, furniture |

So, I needed some furniture, and thought of a feed trough, but had to invent one: Folded from a smallish square, this has trough and some rather nice legs, but does not look very comfortable.

876: (326/365) Angel

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

Cruising around the internet, as one does, I stumbled across a thumbnail graphic of a diagram that appears somewhere else and sort of just worked it out: This is loosely based on an angel design by Max Hulme.

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.

865: (315/365) 11/11/2017 Lest We Forget

Posted by wonko on November 11, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, seasonal |

The poppy has become a symbol of remembrance, reverence and honour: A humble flower capable of thriving in the harshest of conditions, flourishing under duress with a beautiful, if short-lived ephemeral flower. Something existential to learn here for all of us.
