Outdoor Art

In case you’ve been sitting the basement for too long and haven’t noticed – it’s almost spring! I hate winter and can’t wait to start planting flowers and enjoying the outdoors. Not all of us have the luxury of large yards or gardens, but you can still perk up the outside of your house or apartment after a dreary winter with some beautiful art. I’m not a big fan of pink flamingos, masses of windchimes, and lawn gnomes littering one’s yard, but a few choice pieces of geeky outdoor art will let the neighbors know how awesome you are.

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!

Anthropomorphism

Interest in anthropomorphism has become quite a movement. Specifically, animals with human characteristics. Anthro has its own category on DeviantART and a host of groups dedicated to it, including #AnthroCommunity, which boasts over 4,000 members.

Anthropomorphism is defined as anything displaying human characteristics that is not human. Like animals, plants, food, inanimate objects, weather, etc, etc. The first known example is a 32,000 year old German sculpture of a figure with a lion’s head. Anthro embodies many popular geek concepts, such as Furry, kawaii, and cartoon. I’ve found many different amazing examples and compiled them for your viewing pleasure.

Nerd. by KyraTeppelin

Nerd. by KyraTeppelin

Growing up, I never thought of myself as a geek or a nerd. For one thing, those terms didn’t have the same complimentary air that they do today. And I never thought I fit into a label. I was just me. But it was obvious that my best friend and I were drifting apart. She was into sports and fashion and boyfriends, and although I enjoyed those things too, I was more interested in books, video games, and drama club.

It was only until a few years ago that I discovered a lot of styles and interests that are considered “geeky” are also my own styles and interests, and I found I could identify with this term, among others.

Art Dolls

I’ve never been much of a doll girl. Dolls used to bring to mind frilly pink dresses, golden curls, and fragile, delicate faces. That was until I discovered art dolls. That term is used to represent a wide range of figures and mediums, but is usually a sculpted and/or plush art piece meant for display. After discovering all these geeky art pieces, I won’t think of dolls the same way again, and I doubt you will either.
