I tried my hand at some mini pinatas yesterday. Well, one mini pinata. They're quick and easy to make. Here is my goat-turned-Scottie dog pinata. Next time I'll use more colourful paper. I got the idea from Oh Happy Day , which also gives step-by-step instructions.
-grooveshark , a site where you can listen to music, regularly change their background. I really love today's one, which looks like a paper squirrel rowing his boat on a paper river, cuteness! I screen printed it, but I would advise going to the actual link, as the squirrel and river move (almost as if it was done by stop start animation).-
My boyfriend and I recently studied in Europe, and we decided to collect photos of some of the food we ate at home and also when we traveled. The point was to make the photos look really overexposed and almost gross.
From top to bottom: greasy sausage from Prague; chips bought in a Amsterdam flea market; Bagel bought on Beer's birthday in Amsterdam; sausages and meatballs barbecued in Vondel park in Amsterdam; wasabi cheese from Amsterdam; noodles and vegetables topped with an egg from Gut and Gunstig Germany; Croissant and black coffee after a night out in Antwerp (thank you Cornel); Moltaschen in Germany bought at Marktkauf; South African style pancakes made in Tuebingen; Couscous and vegetables in Innsbruck (thank you Gerko and Katja); Gut & Gunstig Apfelstrudel 'made' in Germany; Gut & Gunstig Jalapeno poppers (shared with Kiki) ; Gut & Gunstig nasi goreng; a hearty breakfast, in the days when we still ate meat; cherries from Prague, which we ate on the bus trip home.
Jill Sylvia makes these paper structures out of paper ledgers. The top image is her structure of the U.S. Capitol building, and the one just below it is of a city. To see more of her work go to http://www.jillsylvia.com/artwork.html
Although I rarely re-google-image, stumble-upon recently stumbled me upon this creation by Isaac Salazar, which can be described as amazing 'book origami'. Even more amazing is that the artist is an accountant from Texas who just happened to create amazing book origami when he was inspired by something he saw in the Readers Digest.
