888: (338/365) Cubo Twist

Posted by wonko on December 5, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

This charming 6-piece modular cube is designed by Francesco Mancini and is included in his booklet “Mancinerie”, which I think I purchased from the BOS shop online: Each face is a twisted square. Folded from A5 sheets, the pre-creasing is pretty easy and the twist is satisfying.

887: (337/365) Tree Topper

Posted by wonko on December 5, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, seasonal |

Always looking for a nice Xmas tree topper, this little angel is designed by Leonardo Pulido Martinez and was presented in one of my BOS journals: Had accuracy (and my Spanish) been better, I would also have hands (fingers) on this little model but I started with an almost square and crease drift occurred towards the […]

886: (336/365) Second-Level Octospiral

Posted by wonko on December 5, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Paper fractals are fascinating self-repeating/reducing designs that are relatively new in the origami world: This 2nd-level “Octospiral” is a model I saw in one of my last BOS journals before my membership lapsed. Designed and modified by Roman Diaz, Endre Somos and Meenakshi Mukerji, it is a delightfully dense spiral that, theoretically, could keep reducing […]

871: (321/365) Little Pig

Posted by wonko on November 18, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Always on the lookout for a cute model, I saw this design shared freely on Fakebook by it’s creator: This is “Little Pig” by Hung Cuong Nguyen, a lovely rich and complex model that seems to eat paper like … well, like a pig. Lovely round body, beautiful ears and a tail I decided needed […]

869: (319/365) Love is Love

Posted by wonko on November 15, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, seasonal |

For what seems like an age, Australia has been torn apart by a divisive postal survey that the incumbent government decided was the best way to determine what the right thing to do was: Ignoring world trends, common decency and justice, we “voted” on whether 2 people who love each other should be allowed to […]

856: (306/365) Brillex Cube

Posted by wonko on November 2, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I am always on the lookout for interesting folded geometry: A modular exploration, designed by David Brill is usually interesting and these Brillex cubes seem fascinating.

854: (304/365) … you make One Fairy Cry …

Posted by wonko on October 31, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, seasonal |

Australia does not really have a tradition of Halloween, it seems to me a cultural import that encourages the worst sort of excesses – a point I tried to explain to a small halloweenie dressed as a fairy who came knocking on my door on this day a few years back: It did not go […]

852: (302/365) Magic Carpet Ride

Posted by wonko on October 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, vehicle |

Go on, admit it. Ever since you saw the “Aladdin” movie you have secretly thought how cool it would be to ride on a magic carpet: This clever model, inexpertly folded, is an exercise in colour management- had I used bi-colour paper, the rider and carpet would be different colours – pretty neat.

835: (285/365) Coyote

Posted by wonko on October 14, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

It is a full moon, 24 miles south of the OKish Corral, and the local Coyotes are howling: This rather cute wolf/dog/coyote…thing is a rather nicely structured quadruped that I think is a useful base for modelling other such critters. It is part of a collection of wolves/howling things I looked out for when a […]

833: (283/365) Porous

Posted by wonko on October 10, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

It is interesting how things sometimes just work themselves out: Here was me, panicking because I had nothing ready or in mind for today’s fold, came home and the latest Tanteidan Magazine was in my mailbox.
