363: Tree of Wisdom

Posted by wonko on December 29, 2011 in bird, plant |

You know that feeling when you plan (and see quite clearly in your head) something and then it turns out exactly like you envisaged it?

Posted by wonko on December 20, 2011 in mammal |

One of my wife’s favourite movies is a comedy called “Rat Race”, the title of today’s model is one of the “morals” of that cautionary tale: Akira Yoshizawa is credited as being the father of artistic origami – he also invented the diagramming language we all follow now.

That was cool, it signalled you were with-it […]

Posted by wonko on January 29, 2011 in mammal |

There are many horse models, some extraordinarily complicated – this is a simple one and I will work towards the more difficult ones. Made with 2 squares (both cut from the same A4 sheet), you fold the front and back then join them: Do not panic, I do have ONE sheet complete horses, I have […]
