753: (203/365) Origami Lampshade

Posted by wonko on July 22, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

I am clearly in the wrong business, if making money is the aim. Being slightly (well, I think it is healthy) obsessed with paper, when a new dealer arrives on the scene I take notice. A colleague asked if I knew of “The Paper Empire” – a new QLD outlet in Newfarm: I had not […]

679: (129/365) Scorpion

Posted by wonko on May 9, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Cruising through my copy of “Origamania” by Lionel Albertino, I came across a little creepy crawley I had not folded: This scorpion is pretty clever – remarkably (by other scorpion standards) simple really for the effect, it efficiently creates the legs and leaves a nice body that can be made into a tail.

620: (70/365) Montroll’s One-Sheet Omega Star

Posted by wonko on March 11, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Modular stars are a thing, there are many beautiful ones including multi-sheet omega stars (8 pointers), but this little beauty is crafted from a single uncut square: From a sunken waterbomb base we tease xyz planes then fashion points from their intersections – genius.

566: (16/365) Dave Stephenson’s Tiny Turtle

Posted by wonko on January 16, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, reptile |

Over the holiday break I have taken up swimming laps again. The aim was to be a little bit fitter and a little less fatter – it is sort of working. Naturally I wanted to choose a model for my last day swimming that itself swam, and a turtle/tortoise (who knows what the difference is) […]

462: Samurai Helmet Beetle

Posted by wonko on December 9, 2013 in creepy crawly |

Having ordered the book “Origami Masters Bugs – how the bug wars changed the art of origami” I was itching to fold a bug: Robert Lang is a master paper engineer, I have a few of his books – this is from Origami Insects Volume II and I decided to give it a try – […]

319: Performing Seal

Posted by wonko on November 15, 2011 in mammal |

The crowd gasped and applauded enthusiastically at the task do deftly performed by the seal on display. The seal sighed, feeling that the humans watching it were easily amused and so concentrated on the mathematics of parabolic hyperflexion and existential philosophy to pass the time until the next fish was tossed her way: This is […]

303: Llopio’s Moment of Truth

Posted by wonko on October 30, 2011 in humanoid, mammal |

The croud erupts spontaneously with “Olé!” as Llopio narrowly dodges the bull calf’s first charge. His grandfather’s matador cap, too loose for him, slips and obscures his vision, there is an amateur swish of a cape as the bull’s developing horns pass too close for comfort, quick step out of the way and Llopio is finally a […]

285: National Ride To Work Day

Posted by wonko on October 12, 2011 in humanoid, mammal |

I heard on teh radio this morning that it was National “Ride to Work” Day and narrowly avoided running over a flock of cyclists near the freeway entrance – it got me thinking what riding to work might be like: I had a model I was looking for an excuse to try, and initially tried it on […]

278: Passing Notes

Posted by wonko on October 5, 2011 in domestic, geometry |

Now those who know me realise 2 things – I love music but I cannot read those little black dots on the lines for nuts: It was doubly problematic when I was in a choir as all those around me were able to sight-read and I … sort of … faked it (I have good […]

264: Stinkbug

Posted by wonko on September 21, 2011 in creepy crawly |

I mowed yesterday, and noticed my citrus trees were once again infested with stinkbugs: I would dearly love a solution to this annual pest – not only do they smell, they damage the new growth of the tree and mark the fruit. Worse, I am allergic to the stuff they spray in defense when disturbed – I […]
