573: (23/365) A Cautionary Tale (Part 1)

Posted by wonko on January 23, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, fish, humanoid |

It is a beautiful day, waters clear, the water beckons, it would be wrong not to go for a swim. You put your toe in, the water is lovely, swimming gives you a new found freedom: This is part 1 of a 3 part story – what could possibly go wrong- we rarely see the […]

There is always time to make a little peace in our world.It takes incidents like those that unraveled yesterday to realise that peace is a choice we make as participants of the world on which we live.

351: Diaz’s Stallion

Posted by wonko on December 17, 2011 in mammal |

Roman Diaz is one of many talented Spanish origamists and with this model he captures something of the proud noble stallion: there is much to like about this model – apart from it being a nifty use of the fish/camel base, the posture, proportions and attitude evident in the horse are present in this little […]

348: T-Rex Skeleton

Posted by wonko on December 14, 2011 in dinosaur |

This is nuts, seriously NUTS. I started this model 2 weeks before exam block, and have been chipping away at it ever since: This monolithic modular is Yoshino’s T-Rex Skeleton and I for one am totally impressed with the attention to design detail here. Firstly the overall proportions are correct – no mean feat as […]

313: Monkey with Symbols

Posted by wonko on November 9, 2011 in mammal |

Action models that work and look reasonable are few and far between, this is an exception: Diagrammed (yet not credited to any particular designer) in Origami USA collection, this delightful model is a monkey holding a small set of symbols. By tweaking the handle up and down, whilst holding the body, the arms flail and […]

Remember remember the fifth of November Gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder, treason Should ever be forgot… As a kid I remember cracker night – well in truth, it was cracker week because you could buy fireworks and we used to spend the week blowing things up. In retrospect, all that […]

299: Platypus

Posted by wonko on October 26, 2011 in mammal |

It is a little known fact that Australians MADE UP the Platypus to see who would be silly enought to believe in it: Let’s face it – an aquatic, furry mammal that feeds it’s young milk in a pouch, after they hatch from eggs; duck-bill, webbed feet, beaver tail, “see” via electrical sonar through their […]

184: An Alpaca

Posted by wonko on July 3, 2011 in mammal |

I thought I would try something simpler, so found what looked like a mostly harmless little Llama model designed by Jim Adams: On paper, this model was straight forward – in¬†practice¬†however the thickness of layers at the tail end made this model impossible to fold using copy paper (I tried, breaking one of my own […]

98: See Saw

Posted by wonko on April 10, 2011 in humanoid |

This is a cute action model, counter-balanced so it actually rocks back and forth: It is supposed to be 2 children, opposite ends of a see-saw – a boy (wearing an Indian costume and feather) and a girl (in a bonnet) – use your imagination or some recreational chemicals and it is as clear as […]
