Au pays des hommes verts qui courent après la fameuse sphère noire et blanche, MiamMiam a étudié l’activité humaine, le produit de cette activité ou l’idée que l’on s’en fait, consistant à arranger entre eux divers éléments en s’adressant délibérément aux sens, aux émotions et à l’intellect. MiamMiam prend ensuite la route de la capitale française mais ne s’y arrêtera pas. Son trait digestif oscille entre sensualité et fascination morbide. MiamMiam travaille pour des galettes de faiseurs de son, comme le label Bee Records à la Quenelli, Stalk from Raymond Bar et Loki Starfish aux multiples vidéo clips. »

DIY Natural Clay Mascara (that actually works) » Humblebee & Me Speaking of things I wasn’t sure I’d ever crack—mascara. There’s a reason this is my first entry of my third year of blogging. I have been trying to figure out mascara for ages now. You wouldn’t believe the amounts of black goop I’ve tossed over the last few years. You see, mascara is tricky. First off, mascara must dry quickly—but not too quickly. Once it’s on your lashes, it mustn’t flake, but it also mustn’t melt. Then, after all that, it must actually do something. As it turns out, it is very difficult to achieve all of these things without the use of coal tar, a wide variety of solvents and petroleum-derived dyes, and a heavy dose of chemistry inspired magic. My initial experiments focused around activated charcoal mashed together with oil thickened with wax. From there I moved to experiments with activated charcoal or black oxide in a thickened water base, but all that got me was utterly crap gel-type mixtures with bits of black suspended in them. Finally—clay.

Eugenio Merino - Shao Fan | I’m not a big fan of furry bunny type creatures. I think its something about their weird eyes. Despite this I was quite drawn to these strange paintings by Shao Fan, who is exhibiting his first major show “An Incurable Classicist” at the Contrasts gallery in Shanghai. via: designboom Like this: Like Loading... Fun Crafts With Used Plastic Every now and then we like to take a break from the big news headlines and explore the creative world. We know you love crafts, perhaps almost as much as you love recycling. We tried to think of an abundant resource that you regularly toss, and plastic was the first thing to come to mind. While we highly tout recycling all types of resins, we also love getting our hands dirty and making really cool stuff out of those bags under the sink or those bottles in the fridge. Geometric Lamp Shade When we saw Sarah Turner’s trendy lamp made from plastic drink bottles, we had to learn how to make it – without an electrician and a ton of money. Your best option for material is HDPE, or plastic #2. What you’ll need: Tracing design (get it here), HDPE bottles (number of bottles depends on size of your lamp), a raw socket on a cord (try Ikea), CFL bulb (it won’t melt the plastic) Step #1: Trace your pieces and cut them using scissors or a knife. Step #2: The assembly will be the hardest part. Yarn

How To Grow An Avocado Tree Highly flavored and nutritious, avocados signal a healthy diet, whether we’re talking about guacamole or salad. If you like not having to make regular trips to the grocery for your daily supply of fresh avocados, try growing an avocado tree at home. It’s surprisingly easy. In 10 easy steps, you will see how you too can get a full-grown avocado tree from a little seed, making the whole process very educational and easy to remember. STEP 1: Without cutting the pit from the avocado, remove and wash clean of all the avocado fruit. You might find it helpful to soak the pit for a few minutes in some water. STEP 2: All avocado pits, despite not being perfect round shapes, have a top and bottom side. STEP 3: Next, stick 4 toothpicks into the top side of the avocado seed. STEP 4: Place the glass with the half-submerged avocado in a place with sunlight. STEP 5: Sprouting can take as long as 8 weeks, although many websites suggest only 2-4 weeks. And there you have it.

How The Main Titles For Pirate Series "Black Sails" Became A Work Of Art You don’t see any parrots, peg legs, or eye patches in the main titles for Black Sails, the new Starz series from executive producer Michael Bay that depicts the lives of a brutal band of pirates running an island in the Caribbean in 1715. Avoiding the many clichés of the genre, much like the show aspires to do, the moody 90-second sequence directed by Karin Fong and Michelle Dougherty via creative studio Imaginary Forces reveals pirate life—in all its bloody glory—through a series of sculptural setups involving Baroque motifs, Gothic architecture, and Rococo style. Fong, who has since left Imaginary Forces and joined Wonderland Sound and Vision as president, credits Imaginary Forces lead designer Alan Williams with coming up with the idea of creating a pirate world out of classic sculpture during a brainstorming session. Water—also computer-generated—is another major element in the titles.

cafè Adoro i caffè, quei luoghi in cui ci si siede per fare due chiacchiere. Quei non-luoghi dove ci si ferma, durante un viaggio, per fare una pausa e assaporare il fatto che tutto è diverso. Era da un po' che volevo fare un'illustrazione ambientata in un caffè, per disegnare tutte quelle cose che mi piacciono tanto: i portatovaglioli, le tazze, le manine che tengono le tazze...Uhuu che meraviglia! E poi, mi è venuta un'altra idea, e se invece di disegnare solo il luogo raccontassi una storia (ma una storia vera eh)? Voilà. I love cafès, those places where you sit down for a chat.
