Ideas are Brewing...
Carl Larsson has long been a favorite artist of mine. The colors are just amazing, but I also had a coloring book as a child, obviously in black and white, and it was fascinating. So what is it? The glimpse into his world? The incredibly wonderful detail in each piece? I don't know. I love it all.
My very first needle felted boy doll is dressed and ready to meet the world! I think he is very sweet, he has a pensive face but looks like he could kick a soccer ball with the best of them!
If I can't live in Corey's house someday, I will settle for one of these (click on the right arrow in the upper right corner of the page to see more and more and more... believe me, you will be glad you did).
I would like to share with you the work of one of my new favorite artists: Sarah Amos creates the most incredible prints and murals, all huge (although I have yet to see them in person - another reason to go to New York I guess!). She is also the nicest person, to work with and to meet. I have been working on her website - her design, my translation to web - and it went live a few days ago. An archive will be coming soon, so I suggest you check back!
I usually try to keep some semblance of "art" in my posts here, but this just has me so confounded that I need to share it. And the dog could care less, so...
I have had quite a lot of home computer work to get done recently, which means that my procrastination time has been spent in obsessively re-checking favorite blogs for new posts, equally obsessively surfing around Etsy in hopes of new favorites, and creating useless things in Illustrator. And perhaps some not so useless, such as this colorful logo for my (procrastination-hobbled) freelance work:
Actually, I have no idea what I would do for a Lenci doll, probably not too much. But I would love to see some of these in person. Perhaps hold them and try to discern how they were created. Marvel at the intricacy and attention to detail. These dolls are just so lovely.
hello there! Happy New Year to you!
