may i ask how you color/shade noses? i love your art doll!
i did this rly fast
This big fella is on the postcard, and I showed some progress shots way back when I was painting him, but I figured maybe this would be a good time for some more detailed views of him. I’ve gotten kind of fond of my little buddy here.
No surprise, he’s heading for the Dubious Beasts: Symbiosis show in Cannon Beach next weekend.
(If you want to get a peek at what’s up with the other half of the DB:S show, here’s a nice piece about Shing at WonderCon!)
I just lost all of my marbles over this adorable thing.
Decorated some pages in our mori themed handmade art-book/scrap-book. The one with rabbit is linocut, I made it on manual printing workshop few weeks ago.
Today the Department of Miniature Marvels explores the work of Australian artist Kendal Murray, who uses every day objects as the foundation for creating playful miniature mixed-media sculptures. She builds tiny, vibrant scenes that take place inside and atop found objects such as makeup compacts, coin purses, bottles, jars, and teapots. The human figures that Murray uses in her pieces are so very wee that she uses tweezers to dip in the in glue before delicately placing them into the dreamlike narrative scenes.
The artist says, “The idea of creating these miniature works came from dream states and how we are able to play with our own identity, to play with different roles we take on in our dream state. So the miniature works serve as a metaphor for intuitive thoughts.”
Visit the Arthouse Gallery website to view more of Kendal Murray’s whimsical miniature scenes.

Spatial object sculptures by Michael Johansson
At the mere mention of the word Tetris, the game’s catchy electro song begins blaring in our heads. Artist Michael Johansson’s precisely stacked sculptures made from ordinary objects induce the same internal Nintendo soundtrack. Using found objects like old computer screens, keyboards, cars and suitcases, the Swedish designer creates incredible geometric sculptures - both inside the gallery and jammed into site-specific space
ahhhh… The satisfaction
