Go Bold

30 Jan

You can tell by my hair that I don’t like to be subtle in my appearance. This sometimes applies to the jewelry I wear as well. I like all kinds of jewelry, but occasionally, I want something that makes a statement. Fortunately, if you feel the same way, there are many artists out there that create such pieces. Prepare to be noticed!

Give Thanks for Geekery

Plush Turkey Drumstick by whimsyloveswit

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. The true meaning of this holiday, of course, is to think about all of the things you are grateful for and fortunate enough to have. I hope everyone considers this and gets to spend time with their friends and family. However, I think the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of Thanksgiving is food. Lots and lots of food.

I’ve rounded up the most delicious looking, smelling, and tasting art I could find to ready you for your over-indulgence tomorrow.

Fantastic Sculpture

26 Sep

Sculpture has been around since prehistoric times and can be made from practically any material. I love paintings, but there is something about viewing (and creating) art in three dimensions that I truly love.

I’m used to sculpting tiny figures and jewelry charms, but have recently moved into creating larger scale sculptures. I’ve explored DeviantART and Etsy to see what my peers have made and I’m blown away by their work.

CreaturesFromEl creates fantastical creatures with so much beautiful filigree and detail that it astounds me. I had a very hard time choosing a sculpture from her DeviantART gallery because I love them all. She has amazingly delicate dragons, wolves, birds, and even a Cheshire cat. She also has an Etsy shop where you can make one of these works of art your own.

I would like to have the skill to sculpt human figures someday, like the gorgeous fairy below. Not only do the form and features look realistic, but so do the wings and hair. And the little bits of dirt on her side and shoulder are a nice touch, as if she really were hunting. What do fairies hunt anyway?

Treasury Tuesday: Snuggleicious

Monster Hoodie

Spark – Turquoise Furry Monster by Etsy seller: HappyHoodieFriends

Labor Day is just around the corner, kids are heading back to school, the leaves are starting to turn. It’s barely September and I’m already getting that giddy feeling that comes over me once a year when I know that soon, fall will be here!

Yes, Fall is my favorite time of year. And it’s not just because of Halloween, or the fact that donuts and cider are amazing together. I just love how fall is such a mellow, peaceful season. It’s so laid back that we get an extra hour of sleep! And ultimately it all comes down to the clothes…Hoodies, people, are they not amazing? The warm clothes, the blankets, the pillows. It’s the perfect time to take it easy and cuddle up and stay warm, and that’s the reason why this week’s Treasury theme is: Snuggleicious! All of your cozy favorites with a geek appeal that only Etsy artists can execute so beautifully.
