Jessica Dance Knits Comfort Food... Literally and Figuratively | Brown Paper Bag Jes­sica Dance is an art direc­tor, model maker, and prop styl­ist who spe­cial­izes in hand­crafted mod­els. I’ll say! Check out this series of knit­ted com­fort foods that totally gives new mean­ing to the phrase. As some­one who knows how to knit (poorly), I am super impressed with the forms them­selves and detail­ing on items like sausage and bacon. All pho­tog­ra­phy is by David Sykes. This piece isn’t apart of her com­fort foods series… but goes with the theme of what she’s doing. Christmas Jell-O Shots new!

Starving Artist Recipes I used to live in Seattle and one of the big things I miss about that city is Tom Douglas’s Serious Pie restaurant. It is seriously intense, with their stone-encased applewood burning ovens, exclusive charcuterie, and artisan cheeses. But my fav is their Yukon Gold Potato with Rosemary and Pecorino Romano Pizza. While flights from LA to Seattle aren’t super expensive, making this pizza (or as close to it as possible) is a better alternative. You need to be a bit organized to get the timing right, but it’s very worth the time so stick with it. Makes: 2 pizzasTime: 30 minutesPizza Dough Ingredients: 3 3/4 cup bread flour, 2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast, 3/4 tsp salt, 3/4 tsp sugar, 1 1/3 cup lukewarm water, a few drops of olive oilPizza Topping Ingredients: 3-4 large yukon potatoes, 3 tsp salt, 1/2 yellow onion, 2-3 sprigs of fresh rosemary, pepper, a few drops of olive oil, 2-3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese 5:00pm: In a large bowl combine the flour, yeast, salt and sugar.

Luca federico babina Pinup art that kicks you in the teeth @lodown: That's the exact same impression I got from the images. I guess the intention wasn't to subvert, just 'put a new spin on', which is a shame. I like the images well enough, but 'oooh, pretty' doesn't make for very good art, it's just pretty. @lodown: No intention to subvert pinups. @silver-bolt: Well, that's why I said, "if". It seems to me that some of these illustrations depict beautiful women in classic pin-up style, but also dressed in outfits or in situations that reference BDSM, fascism, and gory violence. The women here are depicted as threatening, aggressive and even sadistic, but they're still sexy in the usual way (hourglass figures, Caucasian features, long limbs, able-bodied, etc.) I think a true subversion of the genre would be to depict non-typically pretty women (or men or transgendered persons) in the same sort of luscious, cheesecake poses. These are just idle thoughts, though.
