Posted by wonko on September 4, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes |

Time is short, this fold is cute: A rather lovely triangle box designed for David Brill’s wedge flexicube.

774: (224/365) Boney McBoneface – Backbone

Posted by wonko on August 12, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

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 […]

756 757 & 758: (206..8/365) Cat, Mouse, Cheese

Posted by wonko on July 27, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal |

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.

726: (176/365) Star Block

Posted by wonko on June 25, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

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.

696: (146/365) LED Display

Posted by wonko on May 26, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

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.

653: (103/365) Stretching Cat

Posted by wonko on April 13, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

As any cat owner knows, cats seem to be able to tie themselves in knots, and this pose is fairly typical of a stretch pose: Well, I say cat “owners” but in reality, cats own and train us to serve them, it is in the nature of cats really.

642: (92/365) No Luck Involved

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

This fold was folded on our 34th wedding anniversary, chosen because a long and happy relationship is not reliant on luck: This dice is clever is a little obscure – rather than traditional dots each face has a partial coverage of colour.

604: (54/365) Heart-Shaped Box

Posted by wonko on February 23, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes |

Any self-respecting Nirvana fan is familiar with the song “Heart Shaped Box”: I was listening to some vintage Nirvana on Spotify and that simple song inspired this simple box.

599: (49/360) Jun Maekawa’s Square Donut

Posted by wonko on February 18, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Starting with 2 squares of paper, some simple creasing, an odd thing happens – a solid shape emerges: This squarish donut is odd, it slides together with nearly no folding and creates an interesting geometry.

597: (47/360) Jun Maekawa’s “Gemini”

Posted by wonko on February 16, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Puddling around in an old Tanteidan magazine, I noticed that the first few pages are usually devoted to smaller folding projects – often modular in nature: This 2-part modular is fascinating and initially I found it baffling as the diagrams were not really clear (the illustrator was trying to represent stages that were 3d in […]
