Posted by wonko on October 8, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

Perusing my copy of Tanteidan Magazine #163, I came across a cute 2-part model that I thought I should try:

Exploring Drawing Origami Tome 2, I found this lovely little crab:

Posted by wonko on October 6, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Leafing through my copy of Drawing Origami Tome 2, I noticed a spectacular modular designed by Francesco Mancini that I knew I had to try:

Modules folded from 2×1 rectangles lock together really nicely, creating clusters of 3 and 5, forcing the megastructure to curve gently into a spikey ball. Read more…

827: (277/365) Metamorphosis

Posted by wonko on October 4, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Few things can compare to the biological miracle that allows a caterpillar to become a chrysalis, inside of which it’s body chemistry and morphology transitions from grub to soup to butterfly:

Few models try to capture the whole journey. This set, designed by Fernando Gilgado  is an exception. Read more…

826: (276/365) Pelican

Posted by wonko on October 3, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

What a wonderful bird is a Pelican, whose beak can hold more than it’s belly can:

We saw lots of pelicans when on holiday up the mid-north coast in the holidays just ended. Majestic gregarious birds that seem to be an odd sum of parts. Read more…

825: (275/365) Happy Irrelevant Monarch’s Birthday

Posted by wonko on October 2, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, seasonal |

For some reason the republic of Australia still has ties to a monarchy that is completely irrelevant to us but somehow, ultimately, still controls aspects of our government:

First day of the new month, one superstition seems to be to say “White Rabbits” as the first thing you say that day – not sure why:

This is Fernando Castellanos’ rabbit, taken from DOT2, and it seems, designed to be folded on a MUCH larger sheet of paper than this. Read more…

Posted by wonko on September 30, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Cruising through my copy of Drawing Origami (Tome 1), I noticed a bunch of folds from there that I had not yet tried:

822: (272/365) Excalibur

Posted by wonko on September 29, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, wtf |

“The Lady of the Lake,… [angels sing] …her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. [singing stops] THAT is why I’m your king!”:

“Listen, strange women, lyin’ in ponds, distributin’ swords is no basis for a system of government. SUPREME executive power derives from a mandate of the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.”

“Shut up!”

“You can’t expect to wield supreme executive power, just ’cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!” Read more…
