HEEEELLLLOOOOOO?!?!?!?!?!!? I think I might be writing into a big silent orbit now, because it’s been so quiet here for way too long. Longest time I’ve ever neglected you guys. Could hardly remember the password to my WordPress. But I have an excuse (yes, yes excuses, excuses!) I BROKE MY ARM! I now have a big titanium thingy in my arm and a big suicide like scar on my wrist. It’s nasty! I’ve wanted a tattoo for a long time and my friends think I should make wonderfully pretty lettering around the scar saying “It’s not what you think”….hmmmm…not quite sure about that!
But I need to get back into the saddle and get blogging again so here’s Luke Lucas. Doesn’t his name sound like a superhero? I love it! He does amazingly crafted lettering which is my fave thing in the world.

PHEW! Have been off the radar for a few days because I’ve been busy writing an assignments for my masterstudies. It is strange being a student AND and educator at the same time. I’m afraid I’m not a very good master student at the moment. Too many things to tend to! But nevermind that!
Here’s a great project by textile artist Debbie Smyth. It is an installation “drawn” with thread. As you might have realised already I love these kind of crafted big scale projects. Good job!

Here’s another crafty project for you today. I think this is the coolest project I’ve seen for a very long time and I just LOVE the original use of materials. “I don’t see it. What is it?” you might ask. And I will tell you that it’s teddy bears! It’s quite a brutal act to skin an animal and I love how that action is such a contrast to dealing with stuffed animals. The colours and contrast in the different “furs” also makes this amazing! WOW! LIKE!

Ohh how I love to discover fellow crafters and German Katrin Rodegast is definitely one! Her quilting project totally blew me away. It’s so well done and visually very strong too. She also does the most amazing little porcelain figures.

Coming across Stacie Baek was such a treat for me because I’ve been wanting to weave something for SUCH a long time. I attempted to build a loom for my exhibit but failed miserably. I think I have to give it another go. Just look at these beauties! WOW!

I love when different techniques are integrated in the same execution. So these illustrations by Izziyana Suhaimi really caught my eye. I love how the embroidery and the drawings go so well together.

Does an art exhibit celebrating Malaysian fruit sound a little odd to you? Well just take a look at these three posters and be enlightened. It’s durian, coconut and pineapple. How cool is that? I love how something that simple is made to look so excellent while in it’s execution still communicating the subject. FAB!

I do love intricate stuff made in paper so coming across Lucas Simões was a thrill. I just LOVE the layering effect in his work.

It doesn’t happen that often I am totally stunned by an artist’s work but Ian Wright did just that for me. WOW! What this guy does with paper is so amazing. I wanna play with paper all summer now, my own little experiments with paper for my exhibit seams very simple now.

Kinda continuing the theme of reflections and metalics from the last post, here’s Idan Friedman’s tin container portraits. I just LOVE that they’re so carefully done in a material that isn’t often used to create something aesthetic. FAB!
