Crazy Crafts IV: ilkelaSometimes, someone's work is so out of the ordinary and unique that I can't help but stare at it, sit back, let it sink in, and wonder where I can get some of that inspiration. That is the case with ilkela's work, I think that she owns one of the most eclectic and unique galleries I've seen around, it is incredible to see someone mastering so many different crafts. I hope you'll like it as much as I do!Crazy Crafts IV: ilkela2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Please enjoy this week's collection and don't forget to anything you find interesting!

Souffle: New Polymer ClayWe all have a favorite brand of polymer clay, but some of us use Polyform's brands almost exclusively (Sculpey, Premo, etc) because they are more readily available where we live. So it's not surprising that there's some excitement about Soufflé, the new product made by Polyform, released just a couple of days ago on April 30th.Souffle: New Polymer Clay1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I wanted to write an article for us miniature food crafters, to summarize what it means to us. If you have already tried it please share your opinion! Also let me know if you want me to write more articles about other brands.
Characteristics (taken from Polyform's page):
It's lighter than regular polymer clay, but not as much as Sculpey Ultralight.
Great for those of us that create jewelry, specially earrings. Other than that, I don't think it'll make a lot of difference, really small objects could actually benefit from being a little heavier.
They claim that it's perfect for caning. <

Hello, you all!
A long time without posting any journal or deviations, I know.
Actually, I honestly debt I will post something "personnal"... bacause most of the illustrations are for the artbook
And i'm pretty happy how they are turning
It's a long and hard work to do but I truly enjoy it and I'm so glad that I can finally draw some characters who truly needed a design
So well, I will continue this. I'm also sorry if I'm slow at commenting your beautiful deviation but I keep them all in my message center to give a little feedback!
See you soon, my friends!
Featured artists! Show them some love!

Coffee and Creativity FeatureSo... I had a deadline and I so put a bit of extra sugar in my coffee. Apparently I didn't need much sugar, and now the extra sugar is giving me a"high" so that I am always painting, always "jittery" like an excited electron that is ready to pop out of orbit!Coffee and Creativity Feature7 months ago in Personal More Like This
That's all good... until the CRASH!! And when I do crash, I don't even want to open Photoshop for a week...
Anyway, I'd like to feature the "gems" I find recently, featuring artworks that have amazing creative concept! Without further ado...
I'd like to thank the artists for their vision and wonderful creativity!

Remembrance Day FeatureRemembrance Day Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
They shall not grown old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Lest we forget.
The above is an extract from a poem called "For the Fallen" and was written in 1914 by Laurence Binyon. London-born Binyon wrote it 7 weeks after the outbreak of World War 1. British newspapers teemed with the news of the dead who'd fallen in battle, and it was against the backdrop of these bleak days that he wrote this poem. This verse, known today as The Ode for the Returned and Services League [RSL], has been recited at all military commemoration services for almost the last century. 'Lest we forget' is usually intoned at the end as a mark or respect and gratitude for those who served.
There are two such services for which we most associate this poem with: ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day. Today is, of course, the latter.
Remembrance day is he

A mini one, anyways. My first one!
What does the winner get?
More specifically: A hand-written letter (with doodles of course) from me, in a "Flutterwind" card. Why? Because snail mail is awesome, and no one gets letters anymore.
Only one winner. This is a mini contest after all.

Ascension 2, Sec 1 Welcome to Hell. Population, me.Ascension 2, Sec 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
Days. Weeks. Months. How long had it been? I didn't know anymore. When your nightmares were all the same, when every day involved the same horrible, useless task, time became…irrelevant. My hands were still scarred from shifting away the rubble of a ruined castle, searching for something, anything, that would tell me she was alive. That against all logic, she wasn't dead. In all that time, I was alone. Tillie, Sky and Jace all searched at my side, but I was by myself. Nobody could reach me past the wall I'd constructed around myself, the wall that had been put up to keep me from burning everything in a ten-mile radius. Those scars on my hands, those earned while searching in vain for her, I refused to heal. I wanted to forget, but at the same time, I wanted to remember. I wanted to remind myself everyday of how I had failed myself, and how I had failed her.

The power's back onMy apartment just regained power today after the hurricane. It's been a pretty interesting four days.The power's back on3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I actually ran through the storm twice on Monday. It was pretty intense and terrifying and you should seriously never do that ever.
While the power was out I reread a the first Lemony Snicket book, learned how to paint (which I'm still terrible at), cooked all of my food so it wouldn't go bad, slept in three different places that weren't my bed, played hide and seek with a bunch of Filipino children, ate an entire jar of peanut butter by itself, took two broken street signs, made friends with the power guys, and became extremely frustrated with my phone for accepting texts on limited cell service but not being able to send them.
Alot of Jersey City still doesn't have power, so I guess I lucked out. Still, it was pretty fun not being distracted by computers and all that for a while.
