Showcasing the three singing, eating offspring. And other inspiring art

Artist Diem Chau partakes in the world of tiny art. These crayon carvings are mesmerizing to look at. I’m constantly impressed by artists who are able to be completely original!

nyc, december 2013. we walked the high line, skated in central park and hung around dad’s beautiful apartment.

British artist Jane Perkins uses all sorts of small, found plastic objects and a glue gun to create awesome assemblage pieces. Jane calls herself a “re-maker” for the way she repurposes everyday objects such as toys, shells, buttons, beads, jewelry, curtain hooks, springs, and so on. It doesn’t matter what the objects are, as long as they’re the right size, shape, and color. She says she doesn’t use any color…just the color of the found plastic objects. The queen would be downright proud of her thriftiness!

Malaysian artist Hong Yi plays with her food. She makes illustrations on her plate with just one parameter: the image has to be comprised entirely of food and the only backdrop can be a white plate. With this in mind, Yi sets out to create landscapes, animals & even homages to pop culture. It’s amazing - the complex imagery created from things in the fridge!

Shot over a period of 18 months, Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s project Toy Stories compiles photos of children from around the world with their prized possesions—their toys. Beautiful photos that reflect the world each child has been born into, and also tells a more anthropological story. In this instance, a picture truly is worth a thousand words.

Picture from Nemo snow day. We only got about 15 inches, but two towns over they got 35. Crazy! The dog went nuts in the snow, she loves it. But weirdly she settled down and struck a pose when it was necessary.

crazy hair day today.
