811: (261/365) Stink Bug

Posted by wonko on September 24, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

My citrus trees have a problem that starts about now in the season: Infestations of stinkbugs arrive and soon they are thick with debilitating sucking insects. It would not be so bad but I seem allergic to their secretions, making getting rid of them difficult. I have tried garlic, chilli spray, soapy water, using an […]

806: (256/365) The Gift that keeps Giving

Posted by wonko on September 13, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes |

‘Tis marking season (I am a teacher) and I hate marking – do not get me wrong, I love designing assessment, just hate having to mark it, especially under ridiculous deadlines: This is Xiaoxian Huang’s gift box – a delicate little fold that I had to modify heavily to get the lid to fit given I […]

802: (252/365) Swallowtail

Posted by wonko on September 9, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Scrambling for a model for the day, and finding time to actually fold it, I found a lovely butterfly by Yoshihide Momotani: This is a Swallowtail, and was designed to be folded in bicolour blue, like this.

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

796: (246/365) Japanese Andon Lamp

Posted by wonko on September 3, 2017 in 365-2017, furniture, Traditional |

Paper is an amazing thing. In Japanese culture, for centuries, walls and furnishings were made from timber and Washi (hand-made Kozo fibre paper). Candle-driven laps made of paper (counter-intuitively) are still common, this is an Andon Lamp: There are 2 versions of this – one that uses 4 squares (this one) and another minor variation […]

787: (237/365) Daffy Down Dilly

Posted by wonko on August 25, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, nature |

Today (August 25) is Daffodil Day, daffodils being the icon associated with cancer awareness and fundraising for an eventual cure. You can get involved, donate or buy badges and sponsored bunches of flowers to show your support: This seems to be a traditional model (sorry, I have yet to identify the designer) but is related […]

784: (234/365) Fold-me Elmo

Posted by wonko on August 22, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Flipping through Tanteidan convention books I have I came across a delightful little figure that was screaming to be folded in orange: This is Riki Saito’s “Mr Puppet Man”, but I reckon he looks a lot like “Elmo” so I am calling it so. (On second thoughts, isn’t Elmo Red? Oh well, never mind)

783: (233/365) Simple Money Box

Posted by wonko on August 21, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

I quite like the apparent simplicity of this design: Folded from a square split on the 1/3 line, larger piece making the base, smaller for the lid, this ingenious design neatly makes a moneybox, coin slot and all.

780: (230/365) Bernie Peyton’s Woman In A Burqa

Posted by wonko on August 18, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Elected members of the senate have a responsibility to represent their constituents: When an elected member plans and then executes a stunt designed to trivialise, demonise and poke fun at an Islamic traditional garment some women choose to wear, I find deeply it offensive.

778: (228/365) Ferris Wheel

Posted by wonko on August 16, 2017 in 365-2017, machine, seasonal |

In the Brisbane CBD today is a public holiday for the RNA Show: I stopped going to the show when our kids asked whether we had to go again this year – it is huge, full of people, end of winter and full of flu.   I also had a go at capturing it in […]
