As I am about to embark on more world travel (see travelblog), I am on the lookout for a fold I can leave in each of the places we stay. Oddly, it is something I do, often hiding little Australiana figures in out of the way places, to hopefully provide delightful surprises for subsequent guests: […]
Christmas is many things to many people. For me it is another chance to get together with family and catch up over a shared feast: I hope that wherever you find yourself, you stay safe and look after each other, share some joy, love, hugs and laughter. Merry Christmas, ho ho ho and all that […]
I am always on the look out for well designed Kangaroos: Interestingly, the best ones are often designed by people who do not have them around. This delightful 2-part model is designed by Kunihiko Kasahara, from the book “Origami Made Easy”.
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.
Having recently realised I had forgotten to re-subscribe to JOAS, I hurriedly did so then went on holidays, fully expecting the back-issues of Tanteidan to not arrive for weeks: Due to the miracles of Australia post (or was that Japanese post and a courier?) they arrived while I was away, fortunately kept dry in my […]
Time is short, this fold is cute: A rather lovely triangle box designed for David Brill’s wedge flexicube.
So I am stepping up and doing a charity walk tomorrow. 35km for Mitochondrial Disease research. I would like to pretend I am super fit, but in reality I am a walker and am not really sure if I can make it: I am however willing to give it a go. YOU can support my […]
So I have been really busy, with meetings and … stuff, so I fell a little behind. Looking to catch up, I noticed a lovely group of folds designed by David Brill: This is Cat, Mouse, Cheese – a naturalistic composition with a pair of lovely fold-related critters and a lovely wedge of cheese.
Sometimes a simple crease pattern leads to some interesting emergent geometry: This is Charles Santee’s “Star Block”, a 2 part modular that I found when trolling among Origami USA’s “The Fold” issue #22.
Scratching around for something to fold, I stumbled across a 2-part modular that I had filed in the “must try” pile: LED displays are part of my past, little blocky symbols that were all the rage before screens went pixels and graphical.
