Just what every six-year-old wants for his birthday – a dirty, post-apocalyptic, burlap rag doll that can steal a piece of your soul. And since my sister couldn’t find such a doll, I volunteered to make it for my nephew’s birthday. There’s a good tutorial here, but I didn’t follow it for some things because I wanted to use clay to model the hands, feet, and eyes. Some Premo! Sculpey did the trick. 9 is moderately poseable and has a zipper that opens and closes. So that’s my version of the “9” rag doll from the movie. *Edit – 2/20/13 – I have had lots of questions about this guy over the last few years, so I wanted to make a note that no, he is not for sale, and I do not make these to sell.

Also, for those of you asking, I am sorry, I don’t have a tutorial. **Edit – 10/10/13 – Looking for more 9 Doll awesomeness? Stitchpunk 9 Doll by Wirecase How My Art Beats 9 Doll. Artist Turns Her Own Menstrual Blood Into Surprisingly Beautiful Art. Artist gives old computer parts renewed purpose by turning them into intricate insect sculptures - Lost At E Minor: For creative people. They say that ‘One man’s trash is another man’s treasure’, but in this case, one man’s broken circuit board is another woman’s bug sculpture. In her series ‘Computer Component Bugs’, UK-based artist Julie Alice Chappell breathes new life into old and unwanted computer parts by recycling them into beautiful high-tech insects.

Her inspiration to turn trash into creepy crawlies began when she first noticed how the intricate features of electronics look like legs and antennas. ‘With all their tiny components, complex circuitry and bright metallic colours I cannot help but compare them to the detailed patterns we see when we look at nature up close’, Chappell wrote. ‘I view the miniature circuit boards with the same curiosity and amazement as I view the natural world’. She hopes that her collection of sculptures might one day help in raising awareness of current environmental issues. Via Demilked. Dr. Seuss penned a nudey book back in 1939 that only sold 2,500 copies - Lost At E Minor: For creative people. We all know Dr Seuss’ children’s books, but what you might not know about the author – whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel – is that he also penned a book in 1939 where all of the characters were in the nude.

And they were all women. The Seven Lady Godivas is the name of the book, and it tells the story of seven very naked ladies who were ‘simply themselves and chose not to disguise it’ – that’s how Seuss explained the nakedness anyway. This adult book was part of Geisel’s conditions when he moved publisher from Vanguard to Random House. Permission was granted and Seuss sat down to pen a ‘beautiful story of love, honour and scientific achievement’. The book initially only sold 2,500 copies but was reprinted in 1987. Via Stuff. Hs.

Ignotofsky believes that illustration is a powerful tool that can make information fun and accessible. Her ‘Women in Science’ series portrays women throughout history who have made great contributions to science. ‘I wanted to celebrate the accomplishments of these women and hope to inspire curiosity in young women to ask questions about the world we live in and be the one who finds out the answers’, says Ignotofsky.

Her overall goal is to complete 50 drawings and the ongoing project can be followed on her Instagram account. 29 Breathtaking Photographs Of The Human Race You (Probably) Haven’t Seen.

Winged is a series by Toronto-based artist Rebecca Yanovskaya, where she uses ballpoint pen, 22k Gold Leaf applique, and a bit of digital retouching on Moleskine to produce fantastical and otherworldly images of angels. The first of the series is called is Ascent of Man and the Destruction of Magic, in which we see two mermaid-like beings looking up at a crowned angel.

Yanovskaya says the inspiration for this piece began from a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she saw the works of Klimt, Mucha, Herbert Draper, Bouguereau, Waterhouse, Frazetta, as well as a sculpture called Mourning Victory. The sequel is called The Descent of Man, in which dark, hooded figures look down on a bowing angel. This piece took the artist and illustrator two weeks to finish it, and we can see why. The details and the patterns, especially on the wings and the rug, are nothing short of amazing. “I have planned three pieces in the first installment of Winged,” she tells My Modern Met.

Curated by artist Chris Stevens, REALITY brings together over 50 works celebrating the strength of British painting with some of the best and most influential artists of the last sixty years.

Uncompromising and direct, the work of each artist represented retains a strong reference to the real world, 'the stuff of life'. While, to an extent, painting has been eclipsed in recent decades by the Minimal and Conceptual movements, installation, photography and film, REALITY testifies to the survival of painting as a medium and the impact of British painting today. Major 20th Century artists are represented such as Walter Sickert, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and David Hockney, alongside contemporary painters including Ken Currie, George Shaw and Caroline Walker. The artists in REALITY tackle a diverse range of subjects, referencing the body, relationships, history, politics, war, the urban environment and social issues.

Portraits of caesarean babies taken seconds after delivery show us what childbirth really looks like. When we think of babies, we imagine rosy cheeks and chubby, huggable limbs. French photographer Christian Berthelot, however, wants us to see them for what they really are: alien-like creatures soaked in blood and bodily juices, bursting out of their respective wombs. In his series ‘Cesar’, Berthelot photographs caesarean babies seconds after birth. With these raw and powerful images, he hopes to show us childbirth as it really is – beautiful, gore and all. Berthelot got the idea for the series from his first-born child, who was delivered via C-section: ‘When I saw [my son] for the first time, he was bloodied and covered in this white substance called vernix’, he told Huffington Post. Inspired, he then underwent six months of training to be able take photographs in a surgical environment. ‘Caesar’ will be on exhibit at the Circulation(s) festival in Paris until March 5, 2015.

A Place to Call Home. Photos du journal - The Jealous Curator. Face of tattooed mummified princess finally revealed after 2,500 years. 'One of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the 20th century'. Picture: The Siberian Times The first replica face has been created of the famous tattooed Siberian princess found mummified and preserved after almost 2,500 years in permafrost. A Swiss expert has used special taxidermy techniques to build an accurate reconstruction of the ice maiden who was uncovered by archaeologists in 1993.

Known as Princess Ukok, after the high altitude plateau on which she was discovered, her body was decorated in the best-preserved, and most elaborate, ancient art ever found. While her discovery was exciting, particularly given how intact her remains were, her face and neck skin had deteriorated, with no real clue as to what she once looked like. However, now her face has been revealed to the world for the first time following the work by Swiss taxidermist Marcel Nyffenegger. 'That two weeks took me to the brink of insanity', the expert confessed. Haunting photos of Icelandic twins will make you wish you were one. Nobody knows what it’s like to be a twin except a twin.

Blowback Blowback is a CIA term, a metaphor for the unintended consequences of covert operations against foreign nations and governments.

Sense and Sensuality: Art Nouveau 1890-1914 / Exhibitions. Sense and Sensuality presents some 65 works drawn from the Arwas Collection, the Anderson Collection of Art Nouveau (already in the Sainsbury Centre holdings), and from various other private collections.

The show embraces the sensuality of Art Nouveau, which at times is risqué, and features a wide range of works from sculpture, graphics, and books to ceramics, glass and furniture.
