Image Odyssey: Jellyfish Ornaments

Posted in christmas, decoration, sea with tags , , on December 17, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve never done a theme tree because I tend to decorate with the handmade ornaments I’ve made every year since nursery school, but a “sea” tree could probably look spectacular.

There are a ton of excellent jellyfish ornaments out there (something about the delicate tentacles really lends itself to gorgeous craftsmanship).

They range from incredibly intricate handmade creations to less complex mass produced versions, and use a variety of materials (glass, shells, plastic, crochet, beads…) but they’re all rather charming in their own right.

Raymond Cicin: Ballpoint Octopus

Posted in art, sea with tags , on December 7, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

As a response to his artist friends insulting the trusty old ballpoint pen, Raymond Cicin collected their discarded ones and drew (on and off, over the course of a year), a 62″x64″ ballpoint octopus.

Octo-2

The piece is heavily inspired by the greatest marine illustrator of all time, Ernst Haeckel.

It definitely elevates a humble writing utensil, don’t you think?

This is an excellent shop concept because it enables you to shoot the people who disturb your reading without making extra store stops.

Time to bundle up for winter! I’m always freezing. I don’t know how I’ve lived without a knit Facehugger in the winter.

Courtney Brown: Tentacle Typewriter

Posted in craft, sculpture, sea, steampunk with tags , , , on November 15, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

This sculpture has been showing up everywhere (in my circle of sources, anyway)…for good reason. Who wouldn’t love a 1938 Underwood typewriter bursting with sculpted bronze tentacles?

She does a beautiful job of matching the suckers on the tentacles to the typewriter keys. It’s a very cohesive creature.

Atelier Iwakiri: Creature Bags

Posted in accessories, craft, creatures, fashion, sea with tags , , , , on November 13, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I don’t understand a word of the text, but I just browsed the entire collection of handmade creature bags by Atelier Iwakiri.

Such excellent attention to detail on scales, shells and skins!

These could be wonderful conversation pieces for the shy and/or introverted to carry around (yes, my mind went there because I am terrible at initiating conversation with strangers. But once I begin talking, I’m fine).
