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.

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 […]

Schools In (swimming against the tide?)

Posted by wonko on October 18, 2015 in fish |

A good friend, Janet, found some marbled tie-dyed mulberry paper when she was recently in Bangkok, Thailand. Like a true maniac she carefully rolled and carried with her on her travels, returning to Australia she carefully transported it to a place I would also be (Townsville for a conference).  What commitment.

513: Koh’s Bubble-Eyed Goldfish

Posted by wonko on October 4, 2015 in fish |

Not quite sure how I missed this little beauty in the flurry of folding fishies, but Sensei Koh messaged me on fakebook and asked why I had not folded it. Truth is I was dazed and confused (and just a little fished out) and must have just missed it: That is a pity, this little […]

Test Fold of A “Glint” Of Goldfish

Posted by wonko on October 3, 2015 in fish |

Fun Fact – the collective noun for goldfish is either “Glint” or “Troubling” – now you know: Now to choose which of these will make it to the actual goldfish bowl – suggestions….?

512: Koh’s Blackmoor Goldfish

Posted by wonko on October 3, 2015 in fish |

Interestingly (for me), I have had goldfish over the years. At one stage I had a tank with 3 of these in it – Blackmoors – lovely plump little goggle-eyed black goldfish: I remember as they got sicker, they became less black until, as they floated upside down ready to be scooped and flushed to […]

511: Koh’s Tancho Oranda Goldfish

Posted by wonko on October 2, 2015 in fish |

A completely different folding technique was a nice change with this much tortured bit of paper: An odd-shaped goldfish, famously all white except for a colourful growth on the head, this thin-waisted fantail was actually really hard work even at this scale.

510: Koh’s Ranchu Goldfish

Posted by wonko on October 2, 2015 in fish |

…continuing on the “fishy” journey, the final in this technique’s series of plump full-bodied goldfish, Ronald Koh’s Ranchu: Oddly, this mutant is known for the cancer-like orange growth on it’s head, the model approximates this.

509: Koh’s Oranda Goldfish

Posted by wonko on October 2, 2015 in fish |

…continuing the fishy theme, this is Ronald Koh’s Oranda Goldfish: A lovely plump little fellow, I am sure I have had these at one time or another – round body, abundance of thin fins and round head.

508: Koh’s Wakin Goldfish

Posted by wonko on October 2, 2015 in fish |

Continuing the fishy theme, this “goldfish” looks more like a salmon: The base, similar to the previous two manages to devote more to body, less to fins so that it looks like you would get a decent fillet of this little fishy.
