747: (197/365) Root Veg

Posted by wonko on July 16, 2017 in 365-2017, plant |

Winter is for hearty food, stews and seasonal root veg: With such open food importing and trade however we see every vegetable and fruit available all year round. Peru grows my Asparagus, Venezuela exports my Fennel and China supplies my Carrots at the moment.

737: (187/365) Penguin

Posted by wonko on July 6, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Reading through Origami Bygota, I stumbled across Ma Yong’s charming penguin: Clever use of colour change goes part way to defining a penguin, but proportions and general morphology also helps.

733: (183/365) Panda

Posted by wonko on July 2, 2017 in mammal |

Matt and Alix came over for lunch, so nice to have their company (BLATs and an amazing, experimental chocolate souffle): We ate, talked, played Takenoko – a board game about Pandas and bamboo farming, such cute imagery. I want to say I won, but I played and did my best – that is always good enough.

712: (162/365) Hojyo Takashi’s Dragon

Posted by wonko on June 11, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur, fantasy |

Dragons are an origami staple (although using staples is cheating!): I am always on the lookout for a nice design and Hojyo Takashi’s Dragon is no exception.

Posted by wonko on June 10, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Cruising teh interwebs for today’s fold, a butterfly design was shared on the Sydney Origami Society’s Fakebook feed: This is Rikki Donachie’s Butterfly, a lovely simple but effective butterfly design.

667: (117/365) Alexander’s Swallowtail Butterfly

Posted by wonko on April 27, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, creepy crawly |

I must admit to never having folded any of Michael LaFosse’s designs, not sure why: I found a few designs that I thought I would like to have a go at – all butterflies, and this is one of them.

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

Artists would be familiar with the the following model: This is Guillome Denis’ “Paint Tube”, a lovely bicolour model that has a style and movement to it.

598: (48/360) Neal Elias’ “Rocking Horse”

Posted by wonko on February 17, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, mammal |

This model is testament to the design genius of Neal Elias: Taking the bird base, and a colour change, we fashion a jockey (with the cutest little cap) atop a rocking horse. I love the detail here and will probably fold this again, only with a slightly bigger bit of paper.

595: (45/360) Valentines Day

Posted by wonko on February 14, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Now I know there are those who say that Valentines Day is a Hallmark business opportunity, but I happen to think that celebrating someone you love is a good thing: My valentine loves to read, so I thought a pair of Washi Deluxe bookmarks would not go astray.

593: (43/360) Neal Elias’ “Andres Segovia”

Posted by wonko on February 12, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

When a member of the British Origami Society, I purchased “Selected works of Neal Elias” and continue to find gems within it – this is one such treasure: Modeled after a classical guitarist in 1970, this model starts with a 3×1 rectangle (8×23 to be exact) and, via miracles of box pleating (a pioneering technique […]
