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 […]

769: (219/365) Male Monarch

Posted by wonko on August 7, 2017 in 365-2017 |

The most fragile and protected piece on the Chess board is the King: I find it interesting that the king has almost the least maneuverability of any piece (bar pawn), yet is often put in the position of having to run for his life from more mobile pieces near end-game.

768: (218/365) Queenie

Posted by wonko on August 6, 2017 in 365-2017 |

My favourite on-screen monarch of all time is Miranda Richardson’s character “Queenie” from “The Black Adder II”: She portrayed an incredible mix of insanity, toddler and antichrist which will always make me giggle.

765: (215/365) I’m the king of the CASTLE …

Posted by wonko on August 3, 2017 in 365-2017, animal |

Continuing the exploration of court pieces, we move on from the Pawn to the Rook or Castle: I like this series – there is a visual similarity with the bases on all of these pieces and the tops are fairly easy to recognise. this one has a simple geometric turret atop the pillar.

Posted by wonko on August 2, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic |

We begin another Chess set, this time designed by Mark Kirschenbaum. This is his Pawn: A lovely little figurative foot soldier, lovely circular base and an interesting fold.

752: (202/365) Riccardo Foschi’s Koi

Posted by wonko on July 22, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

It was late, I was tired and I must admit to going to bed before folding yesterday. Full week, new levels of fatigue: I found these diagrams on Pinterest – seems they are test diagrams (oops, sorry) but I love the shape and model structure.

751: (201/365) Pushing Shiz Uphill

Posted by wonko on July 20, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, creepy crawly |

Sometimes work can be busy. When spares are sparse, classes all doing new/complex things and physical exertion hit their peak, sometimes you can feel like you are pushing shiz up hill: This is a lovely little dung beetle, coveting it’s little ball of dung. It is a charming fold that I was unsure if I […]

750: (200/365) Triple Tsuru

Posted by wonko on July 20, 2017 in 365-2017, Traditional |

Continuing the exploration of Hiden Senbazuru Orikata, this is the “triple tsusu”: Folded from a partly separated 2×2 grid of squares, with one set of adjacent sheets living inside each other to make an interconnected chain of 3 Tsuru.

749: (199/365) Oyster Box

Posted by wonko on July 18, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, crustacean, geometry |

David Mitchell is a legendary origami designer, responsible for countless geometric wrangles: This is an “Oyster Box” – a box that resembles a bivalve, that locks together rather satisfyingly and opens to reveal a spacious interior.

744: (194/365) Wizard’s Hat

Posted by wonko on July 13, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, geometry |

Anyone who has seen any of the “Lord of the Rings/Hobbit” movies will recognise the profile of this hat: Gandalf the Grey wore a wondrous felt hat like this, Mike Luo’s “Witches Hat”.
