659: (109/365) I WANT To Believe

Posted by wonko on April 19, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, scifi |

Now I am not so conceited as to think that humans are the only intelligent life in the universe, but the more I understand about humans, the more I am convinced that the sure proof there IS intelligent life elsewhere is the fact that they have in no way attempted to contact us. Nothing. Not […]

648: (98/365) Floral Vase

Posted by wonko on April 9, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, domestic |

It is rare that a simple bit of geometry is so lovely but this floral pot combines glorious proportion and an efficient use of the sheet: A simple(ish) twirl causes the vase shape. I must work out how to fold this without the pre-creasing scars as I think this would look beautiful in large format […]

645: (95/365) Peacock

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

A model I had mastered as a child was the only Peacock I had seen folded until fairly recently: This is Edwin Corrie’s Peacock, a magic little model that makes a tight efficient little body out of one corner of the square leaving lots of paper for the fan-shaped tail.

644: (94/365) Picnic at Hanging Rock

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

While in regional Victoria, in the vicinity of the Macedon Ranges, it seemed wrong to leave Hanging Rock off our agenda. Back in the 70’s, there was an important Australian movie made called “Picnic at Hanging Rock”: A fiction/mystery, it involved the mysterious disappearance of some school girls at the rock, after they had a […]

Posted by wonko on March 30, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

I am sure dinosaurs were not cute – not even baby ones as they were snappy wild beasts: The little purple beauty is designed by Issei Yoshino and is a lovely exercise in colour management.

632: (82/365) Spiral Snail

Posted by wonko on March 23, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Inspired by the work of Tomoko Fuse, I began experimenting with a square and using most of it to do a spiral. Initially I tried even divisions but found a more logarithmic progression from wide to narrow worked best: Using alternating mountains and valleys, a lovely spiral emerged and there was enough paper to fashion […]

627: (77/365) Collapsible Cube

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

Toys for people with ADHD are all the rage – people pay for things with switches, moving clicky bits and spinney things because, reasons: This paper toy continues to be an enigma. Made of 4 modules, it is a twisty cube that also folds flat in a myriad of ways that break your brain.

626: (76/365) Little Snail

Posted by wonko on March 17, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Spirals have most recently been explored by Tomoko Fuse, but lovely spiral shail shells have existed in traditional origami for a long while before that: This is Eduardo Clemente’s snail, well, one of them. As a bi-colour model it cleverly manages the 2 colours ensuring the soft slippy bit of the snail is one colour […]
