Merit Badges by Mary Yeager

Doing some digging around the interwebs yesterday for a new project I came across these great hand stitched merit badges by Mary Yeager. They were created for an art show at Gallery Hanahou called Forget Me-Not, which featured embroidered objects from the new craft movement. I love the detail and time spent on these, they look exactly how I would imagine guts and a heart looking.

Paper Cut Animations by Jen Stark

I came across Jen Stark’s Vimeo profile the other day, and was surprised to see that it didn’t have a ton of people visiting it yet. For those who haven’t heard of Jen, she’s the awesome lady who makes the amazing cut paper sculptures. For a quick lesson, click here.

Anyhow, she’s made some really fun videos using her paper cutting skills, including the video at the top, which is the “view of the inside of a sculpture (she) created called “Tunnel Vision” that hangs on the wall and has a peephole you can look into.” They’re all pretty great and short, so enjoy them all.

My Interview with Swide

In a bit of shameless self-promotion, Swide, Dolce&Gabbana’s fun new blog, asked me to do an interview with them, and of course I said yes. How could I pass up the opportunity? They asked me a lot about being blogger, my ideas and opinions on blogs in general, and overall it was interesting for me to share my thoughts on the topics. It’s weird to even be asked these sorts of things by anyone, I’ve only been doing this for a couple years.

I’ve pasted the questions under the cut, but there’s some photos of my apartment and workspace on the interview page, so if you’re curious click here. Big thanks to Kerry Olsen over at Swide for thinking of me!

Casey Reas

It’s hard to put into words the work of Casey Reas. The best way I can describe it is fancy math that happens to turn into art. I’m sure it’s not that simple, and I don’t want to demean his work, but I have a feeling that his process is something that’s not easily understood. The pieces above were two of my favorites, extremely random but also quite beautiful at the same time.
