spooky fellowship

I’m in love with them. Finished those tiny sculptures today and fell in love.

May I show you my spooky fellows!
-Bad Tooth ( for friends - Vincent )
-Mr Worm – wears only magnificently tailored suits and pink only
-Little Graveyard – .. yes, It’s a person if you ask.

so..what should I do with those…. Something for girls or something for boys? I have an idea ready, but I’m really curious what would you see me do with those vials.  More pictures on FLICKR!

Those tiny sculptures are made of paper clay, painted, varnished & set into miniature glass displays – tiny cabinets of curiosity, which I just adore! Each vial have tiny more than 1 inch, so you can imagine the size of each critter. Which one you like the most?

illustrations and fairy tale dreams

There is many wonderful & undiscovered illustrations… some of them so old that you’re scared to flip the page… some by foreign authors. What I’m going to show you today is a work of couple of  Polish artists… & probably you’ve never seen those pictures before.

If you look at my previous post – I’m writing about one of my favorite fairy tale books… and  I adore those stories, but it’s the illustrations that make it so special… and those are by Bożena Truchanowska i Wiesław Majchrzak. The book is dated 1982, and those artists are not from internet era..  so to stumble upon them is pure luck.

from Fairy Tales by Brothers Grimm

Warszawa 1982

Some things I like

So those are just some things I like, and I feel they are worth sharing…. I’ve been at my old house and made couple of photos – so regrettable that I cannot have all my things with me!

You can see just a piece of my bookshelf (By the way – I would probably paint my room blackish nowadays..)… and among those treasures – “the Graveyard Book” by Neil Gaiman… I snatched this one in Dublin actually… love the story and just look at the illustration! Gorgeous (according to me at least ((: ) …. I wish I had a chance to make something for Neil’s book sometime, but I’m not sure My style is His style ((:

The second thing (book of course!!!) it’s sentimental… a copy of Brothers Grimm Fairy tales .. old, thin book with amazingly weird illustrations that I love.. love them all.  I have this strange copy since I remember and have been staring at those pictures and daydreaming….they are filled with odd detail.. just wonderful! …  so that’s a few things I like… some more coming!
