CHALLANGE! June, Week 4: Grab Bag (Past Challenge)

Lots of fun challenges going by with not many posts. I am definitely guilty of not participating as much as I would like! Life get's busy. I completely understand! So lets use this week to choose a past challenge that you missed, but would still like to do. Have fun!

Post up anytime this week and label with the proper tag and your name. Thanks!

I'm very late on this, but just had to do something for Alien week. Don't think this qualifies as a spoiler since you have to already have seen PROMETHEUS for this to even be a joke. :P


Challange! June, Week 3: Historical + Supernatural =

With Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter coming out this week I can't help but imagine the inspiration this blooms. I love the idea of something historical mixed with something supernatural! Apparently this is a novel, by Seth Grahame-Smith, who also wrote Pride and Prejudiced and Zombies. Two books that just got pushed to the top of my reading list... after Game of Thrones. Anyways, have fun with this one! I can't wait to see what you all do!

(Please don't post until Friday or later and label:  Historical + Supernatural, Your Name. Thanks!)


Challenge! June, Week 2: Tiger + Crab =

Thanks Ted for this idea! 
Label: Tiger+Crab, Your Name, please don't post until Friday, thanks!


Weekend Inspiration: Ted Talk, Vik Muniz on Creativity

Vik Muniz makes art from pretty much anything, be it shredded paper, wire, clouds or diamonds. Here he describes the thinking behind his work and takes us on a tour of his incredible images. 

May, Week 4: SNOW WHITE AND.....

Okay, okay, I'm a little behind with this one.
As the story goes, Snow White's Ma and her know-it-all mirror have sent the kid to the woods so's she can't compete in the upcoming village beauty contest.  (Imagine what her Ma looks like.)  The ever faithful and fully employed huntsman got the lose-her-in-the-woods task.  But his kind nature kicked in and he's taking her to stay with his seven diminutive cousins 'till the heat's off.  Little does he know that SW has designs on him as they head off into the dark and tulgey wood....(with pardons to Mr. Carol.)
Oh what a web we weave
when first we practice to deceive...


Challenge! June, week 1: Aliens

In honor of Prometheus opening this week, 'Aliens' will be the challenge this week!

Please don't post until Friday and label: Aliens, Your Name. Thanks!


Jess Morris: Baby Monster

(if not recognizable, Creature from the Black Lagoon)


Friday Inspiration: Painting Demo by Bobby Chiu

I am a huge fan of adventure time and Bobby Chiu did this awesome fan piece!

Here is his process which is really inspiring to watch. I love how he almost sculpts the piece to what it is and how he just splashes on color making it all somehow come together. (If you aren't up for a 'life' pep talk just mute it.)

He also has a lot of other free demos! Check them out and let us know if you find any really good ones!
