Inspirational Artists :: Engaged to a Prince

At the Stephen Friedman Gallery in London, artist Jennifer Rubell has created quite the commotion with her latest installation. Inside you'll find a wax sculpture of Prince William standing in the pose he struck at his engagement announcement...wait for it...it gets even better.....on his sleeve lies a replica of the engagement ring he gave Kate Middleton. So, when you visit the gallery, you can step onto the pedestal, slide your arm through William's, and slip on the ring. Le sigh...

About a month ago, some of you might remember I had a giveaway that was hosted by Row House Nest. The winner of that giveaway was Sheila, over at SZInteriors, who chose my sand dollar print. Anyway, short of the long is that she wrote a super nice post on her website about my print and its packaging! :) You can check it out for yourself here. Thanks again Sheila, I'm so glad you're enjoying it!!

Inspirational Artists :: Drowning Sculptures

Artist Jason deCaires Taylor creates life-size cement human sculptures and submerges them into the ocean. Over time the sculptures become a part of the underwater landscape, full of marine life. The ever-evolving aesthetic is amazing! I know it's a longer video...but when you get a chance make sure you watch the whole thing through!

Fresh Ink :: Winter Berries

Yesterday was a very successful printing day! I printed more paddle prints, as well as a few paddle Moleskine Journals. I finished the day by printing the berry branches I recently finished carving. I can't wait for the ink to dry so I can go back and add a touch of red to each berry!

Drawing Rome from Memory

This video is AMAZING! Stephen Wiltshire is an architectural artist who's known for his ability to draw a landscape after seeing it just once. See it to believe it!

Berry Branch

I'm almost done carving my next print :: just have to carve out the center of each berry....which means straining focus and cramped fingers by the end of today! It'll be worth it though, I'm excited to see how this one will print!
