1) I have been thinking that one day, one day soon I will start my new hobby...book art.
I am obsessed with book art. It looks simple, just cutting a book up. The combination of images really do tell the story without needing any of the words. I marvel at the cutting talents of the artist that did this piece. I forget that I have clumsy cutting styles. But I think I could so do something like this....maybe more of a beginner one.
2) I adore dogs. The only thing I adore more are funny dog pictures. I found on my tumblr an artist, Carli Davidson, who specilizises in dogs. She has the most wonderful series called Shake. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
