804: (254/365) Daniela Caboni’s Yin and Yang

Posted by wonko on September 11, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

The principle of Yin and Yang is a fundamental concept in Chinese philosophy and culture in general dating from the third century BCE or even earlier. This principle is that all things exist as inseparable and contradictory opposites, for example female-male, dark-light and old-young: Right now I am trying to balance rest with exhaustion due […]

800: (250/365) Yara Yagi’s “Menaca”

Posted by wonko on September 7, 2017 in 365-2017, flower |

800 new models … let that sink in … 800 things I had not folded before – wow, just wow: I was looking around, as I do, for a model to fold today, I noticed on Fakebook that Winnie Leung from The Sydney Origami Group shared this photo-diagrammed model.

794: (244/365) From little things, big things grow

September 1 is often trotted out as the first day of Spring in the Southern Hemisphere: Purists will argue that the spring equinox is not until the 21st of September, but with the climate as it is, it has felt like spring for weeks now in Brisbane.

It is a well known fact that the clergy can be shifty: Moving on the diagonal, rather than straight up and down, this i the Bishop.

766: (216/365) Horsie

Posted by wonko on August 4, 2017 in 365-2017 |

The knight is the most awkward of the court pieces at times, with it’s trademark “L” shaped move: I play reverse chess with a mate (*waves to Winston O’Boogie*) – the aim of reverse chess is to LOSE everything but the king. I find the Knight useful in this game indeed.

760: (210/365) Akiko Yamanashi’s Scallop Box

Posted by wonko on July 29, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, crustacean |

To celebrate the 201st fold in this challenge, I was looking for a shellfish-based fold – not sure why but there you go: Leafing through a Tanteidan Convention book, I came across a “Scallop Box” design designed by Akiko Yamanashi.

754: (204/365) Gaff’s Blade Runner Chicken

Posted by wonko on July 23, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, bird, fantasy |

My top 5 movies of all time includes the Sci-Fi classic “Blade Runner”. A couple of times during the movie, to confirm a character’s opinion of Deckard’s actions, his sidekick “Gaf” left an origami figure: One was actually folded by the actor (Edward James Olmos) – a gum wrapper was fashioned into a Chicken. He […]

746: (196/365) Fairly Bloody Long Walk

Posted by wonko on July 15, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, wtf |

My lovely daughter walked for charity last year and I was so proud of her (secretly regretting not doing it with her). This year, the same walk is on offer at, thankfully, at a much cooler time of year so we are both walking “The Bloody Long Walk” in early August: Today, as part of […]

733: (183/365) Panda

Posted by wonko on July 2, 2017 in mammal |

Matt and Alix came over for lunch, so nice to have their company (BLATs and an amazing, experimental chocolate souffle): We ate, talked, played Takenoko – a board game about Pandas and bamboo farming, such cute imagery. I want to say I won, but I played and did my best – that is always good enough.

724: (174/365) School Holidays!

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

After a brutally busy term, it is time to recharge, dance a little, be thankful for the good things that surround you: This is Jeremy Shafer’s “The Dancers” – a charming little pleating exercise that takes a square (in this case a 15cm Japanese foil square) and, via a clever set of collapses, isolates 2 […]
