839: (289/365) Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport!

Posted by wonko on October 16, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

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”.

831: (281/365) Swimming Fishie

Posted by wonko on October 8, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

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.

814: (264/365) Complementary Modular Octahedron

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

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.

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.
