Embroidered Easter Eggs! (so colorful)

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

One of my favorite Bloggers, Design*Sponge just blogged this:

Some people may get spring fever, but around this time of year, I get egg fever. Egg decorating is, without a doubt, my all-time favorite holiday-crafting activity. When I came across an image recently of eggs made by Ukrainian folk artist Forostyuk Inna that were embroidered (yes, really embroidered!), my mind was officially blown. A way to combine egg decorating and sewing? Sign me up!

My research didn’t uncover much in the way of a how-to for this technique, so after much obsessing, I decided to give it a try on my own. To my surprise, sewing on eggs isn’t really difficult at all, once you get the hang of it! I know you don’t believe me, and this project truly does seem to defy the laws of physics. But just read on to learn the secret of sewing on eggs. — Brett Bara

here are a few more photos I think this is such a cool idea!

Spoons! in all colors!

Thursday, April 14, 2011

In the spirit of this blog originally being about all things color related (for my Color Workshop class at Pratt) I saw these amazing spoons on the dieline.

First off, the packaging is super cool but I must say that I am drawn to the saturated colors of these awesome utensils! Actually, with further inspection I realized they are baby spoons! Here is the little product story:

“Did you know silver is naturally anti-microbial? Well it is, so we infused a proprietary silver ion into a new line of modern and colorful baby utensils in order to create Silver Spoon TM. We want to make absolutely sure your baby gets fed germ-free and in style – without the use of nasty germicidal chemicals.”

MoCCA and Alex Robinson (updated)

Sunday, April 10, 2011

I just got back to the studio from the MoCCA Festival and it was a huge success! Not only did I buy lots of new graphic novels but I got to see my favorite Graphic Novelist, Alex Robinson! In addition to getting his latest mini-comic and having it signed, I had something for him. This semester in my Visual Perception class I designed a series of book covers for graphic novels. For my solution on space and light I decided to redesign one of my all-time favorite graphic novels, Robinson’s Box Office Poison. Here is my redesign with, Alex’s signature on it from today!

Additionally, I gave Alex a copy and he loved it! He also asked for my business card and asked if he could put it on his blog!! If indeed he does I will be sure to blog about it! What an awesome Day!

April 12, 2011 Update!

So I woke up this morning to see that Alex has blogged about me!! and he posted the same on his Facebook page! I have never been blogged about… I am so excited! Here is a little screen shot of Alex’s blog!
