Look at this awesome tribal tiger drawing! It was drawn by Iain Macarthur and the original post is here.

Here are some more awesome animal drawings by him:

Sculpture Thursday: Wing House

This extremely fancy, modern looking house was created using a 747 plane! The house is made from parts of an actual plane, and, as you can see from the picture below, uses the wings as roofs for parts of the house. Amazing:

Wing House

According to the article at Design Milk:

The main residence uses the wings and tail section as roofing elements. There’s also an art studio, guest house, and animal barn all made from the fuselage. A meditation pavilion was also created from the cockpit.

Cartoon Saturday: Wrapping Paper

Look at this adorable wrapping paper by Orange You Lucky!

I love wrapping paper. And this one’s too cute!

I just found an awesome UK shop for really cute, colorful wrapping paper simply called Wrap. The Wrap store is actually based on a magazine, which showcases “illustration, design and creative culture” and they include a couple sheets of wrapping paper with each issue. Here’s a screenshot of some of their designs:

I wish there was a store here in the US! I would buy so much. So. Much.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

I will admit this is a scheduled post; I’m probably off having dinner with Taylor right now at La Fondue in Saratoga. It’s really good, but fondue’s not really my thing. I’ll share what I bought Taylor for Valentine’s this year!

Valentine's Day presents

So I got him the Fiasco booklet and two different colored sets of 12 dice (d6). He has a lot of d6’s already, I think, but I didn’t know how to ask if they’re all the same color, so I just got him more. Whatever. I also got him Batman cufflinks because we’ve been playing the Arkham series together. I was actually going to get Arkham Origins or Knight but I couldn’t tell if he already had it or not… Lastly, I got him some cookies and cream candies because it’s his favourite candy. :)

Finally, here’s the card I got him: I Love Your Stupid Face by Emily McDowell :)

I didn’t get him anything last year so I hope this makes up for it!
