707: (157/365) Tumasek Butterfly

Posted by wonko on June 6, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Browsing a BOS convention booklet, I came across a rather nice butterfly designed by Ronald Koh: This is the Tumasek butterfly, I folded it in duo yellow/green paper making it a little like a cabbage white butterfly.

706: (156/365) Finger Gyro

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

A craze among the young kids at the moment is the “fidgit spinner“, that little toy that … spins, and … well, that is just about it: According to some fairly shady “research”, these toys improve concentration, and that may be correct for a limited number of kids with specific learning issues, but, yeah. Enterprising […]

705: (155/365) Jo Nakashima’s Monkey

Posted by wonko on June 4, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

This adorable cheeky monkey is a masterpiece of design: Using the back colour of the paper to highlight the face and ears, then working a nice body, lovely long tail and all.

700: (150/365) Little Bear

Posted by wonko on May 30, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Trolling through the interwebs, as you do, you oft come across things that you save for later: This “Little Bear” is a simple model (I have little time today) that I had saved for later but do not know who the designer is, sorry.

683: (133/365) Pet Gripe

Posted by wonko on May 13, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, mammal, nature |

Last weekend I mowed the lawn – that is not so much a revelation as a statement of fact – I enjoy mowing, always have. I do not, however, enjoy the “presents” that dog owners allow their pets to leave on my lawn: I recognise that part of the pleasure of owning a dog is […]

678: (128/365) Paper Ninja

Posted by wonko on May 8, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

The internet is an amazing thing, no sooner had I folded a model by Oriole Esteve, then he contacted me via Fakebook and offered me diagrams for a bunch of other folds: This is his Paper Ninja – a cunning little fellow that seems fairly stealthy.

672: (122/365) Lang’s Butterfly

Posted by wonko on May 2, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Continuing on the theme of butterflies, I could not go past this one, designed by Robert Lang: Taken from “Origami Insects II”, it is one of a number of creepy crawlys that I have yet to fold from this book.

669: (119/365) Lillian’s Butterfly

Posted by wonko on April 29, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Dedicated to Lillian Oppenheimer, a luminary in the early ’70s Origami world, this butterfly, designed by Michael LaFosse is pretty neat: Interestingly, not poles apart in technique from “Alexander’s Swallowtail“, I chose different colours and was careful with the wing formation so it was morphologically distinct.

666: (116/365) Parent Teacher Interviews

Posted by wonko on April 26, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

As a teacher, we periodically get the opportunity to meet with parents of our students. Invariably¬†they are interested in how their sons are going, how they went on the test and what can be done to continue to encourage them to give of their best: I actually like meeting with parents – they are great […]

652: (102/365) Sleep In

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

Now you are set to sleep in, for the first time in ages right? Your neighbour, bless him, decides this morning is the time to chainsaw and woodchip the hedgerow: As amusing as this sounds, this actually¬†happened to me this morning. Coincidentally I had just completed Fernando Gilgado’s “Sleeping In” model – seems the universe […]
