Oh where do I start with this music video?! I love how they’ve done the eyes, how the horse licks everything and the fact that it’s all wood burned… oh I love creative music videos…
And better yet, here’s a “Making-Of” video!
This guy is the second in a series taken from a set of drawings my Dad did when I was much smaller than I am now. Don’t worry, when I’m done they’ll all be reunited in a single post. Very glorious, promise. I’m still not happy with the smaller cat he’s holding… we’ll see what happens with that at some point. I really loved that he looked like an evil cat genius in the drawings… and somehow he’s turned into a regular classy catman.
The toes on his shoes are my favorite part. It’s the little things…
I was on Craftzine today and I found Rhonda’s Recycled Craft Project. The idea is really simple, anyone can register by purchasing a challenge packet (for just the 20 cent cost of the listing fee) by June 1st. On June 2nd, Junkstop will mail out a packet to each person who is registered. All packets will have identical contents, consisting of an assortment of items saved from the landfill, as well as the rules for the challenge. Photos of completed entries should be posted to the Rhonda’s Recycled Craft Challenge Flickr group by July 15. The winning entry gets a $20 gift certificate to their Etsy shop.
How great is that!? It’s so simple and for 20 cents it couldn’t be cheaper. Getting people to think about what they consume and how they can reuse these things is great, you can’t put a price on that. I just bought my packet (what ELSE can you buy for 20 cents? Nothin’, that’s what). Wouldn’t it be great if you guys did it with me? Then we could all post our creations! That would be super cool.
I got my ticket to the Portland screening of Handmade Nation documentary this Sunday! It’s showing at the Museum of Contemporary Craft all weekend, they’ve added a bunch of extra screenings and they’re selling out so quickly! The showing I’m going to is at 5:30 so I think I can hit up the Crafty Wonderland right before that while I’m all the way downtown anyway. I’m really REALLY excited. I’d heard murmurings about the film on the internets for a long time and now it’s finally here!
Here’s a little preview of the artists/movie/museum of contemporary craft:
