This was a requested sculpture, and quite a bit of fun. Epoxy clay painted in acrylic, with a few feathers added as a headdress. 3 1/4 inches tall. More photos can be found in the gallery here.
Here are a couple more blogs I found interesting. Creative Something has a lot of articles and some good links if you find yourself needing motivation/inspiration. Sustainably Creative is a similar blog that is written by a man with some fairly significant health problems that limit him physically, but sure don't seem to hold him back artistically. Check them both out! I know, I should be spending less time reading about being creative and more time actually going out and creating ... I'll get right on that.
Oooh! I found another geek art blog, this is a French one but the posts are also written in English. Not that it matters much, the focus is the art. Yay! More geekery! I added the link to my 'Cool Stuff' section at the right, too. :)
I know this is the wrong time of year for Christmas art, and (as usual) I'm about three years behind on the trending links, but this is too cool not to share. Fungal culture Christmas tree! The geek in me just went "Squeeee!"
Yep, I'm a big fan of the Game of Thrones TV series, too. It's got baby dragons in it, what's not to love? Game of Thrones inspired art was inevitable, and this has to be one of the best. It's a plush Jon Snow and Ghost by Mick Minogue. Love it. From the artist's own description:
A handmade personal plush inspired by the saddest character In the Game of Thrones series. Jon Snow the bastard son of House Stark and his trusty Direwolf 'Ghost'. This lonely plush doll comes with his own Valyrian steel sword 'Longclaw'. Ghost comes with his very own White Walker hand which he found out past the wall In the snowy snow.
Lots more photos can be found here.
A recent NY Times article titled Why We Love Beautiful Things examines a bit of science behind good design. It's a good read, and it makes me want to paint a mural on my studio wall. :)
