868: (318/365) Memory Like A Goldfish

Posted by wonko on November 14, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

It is a commonly held belief that Goldfish have a short-lived memory: I have no idea if this is true, but suspect it is complete bunk.

867: (317/365) Not Drowning, Waving?

Posted by wonko on November 13, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, humanoid |

This time of year is horrible. The plain truth of it is that, for a teacher, we have more marking than a reasonable person can do, and deadlines that seem impenetrable: I guess it is why teachers in Australia are payed the big bucks, right?

863: (313/365) Casa Blanca

Posted by wonko on November 9, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I always find it remarkable that with relatively few folds, we can hint at a shape so familiar that our minds go nuts and full in the visual context: This is Roman Diaz’s “Casa Illusione”, a faux 3D dwelling that nicely plays with light, angle, perspective and proportion. I chose to fold it white (Casa […]

862: (312/365) The Night King

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

Now I am as much a fan of Game of Thrones as the next person, but I do like a good ice zombie as a baddie: This is Nick Robinson’s “Hairy Man”, but I think it is much more demonstrative of an icy undead monster.

860: (310/365) Pizza Slice

Posted by wonko on November 6, 2017 in 365-2017, wtf |

You know, I thought I understood Pizza, then I went to Naples, Italy, and realised I knew nothing about pizza at all: There are moments in your life when things just make sense – that moment of clarity where the perfect combination of crushed tomato, basil and mozzarella on a thin crisp base spends 90 […]

859: (309/365) Jumping Frog

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, amphibian |

The traditional world of Origami has many classic folds, it is constantly amazing to me how few of them I have actually folded: This is a traditional jumping from – well, at least one version of it. The mechanism is simple and relies on paper thickness to provide a spring on the back legs. You […]

858: (308/365) Pollywog

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, amphibian |

Sometime a simple model has a charm of its own: This tadpole is a relatively simple exercise in box pleating to isolate tail and back legs but the shaping is lovely.

857: (307/365) Maekawa’s One Sheet Flower Stalk

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, flower |

Many origami designers have tried to pack lots of details into the one sheet. I have folded Brian Chan’s One sheet Rose many times but I like the simplicity of this flower, stem and leaves: Using some interesting box pleating and colour management make a rather nice simple flower atop a divided stem and pair […]

855: (305/365) White Rabbits!

Posted by wonko on November 1, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

As is customary on the first day of a new month, we say “white rabbits!”: This is an old design, and I am not sure i have the shaping quite right yet. Akira Yoshizawa is credited as founding modern Origami and this is one of his designs.

853: (303/365) Genie in a Lamp

Posted by wonko on October 30, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

…so if you found a magic lamp, rubbed it and a Genie appeared, granting you 3 wishes, what would you wish for?: It is an interesting, vaguely existential question that is remarkably difficult to answer with any certainty.
