I found some old art books today called ‘Celtic Art: The methods of Construction by George Bain’ Which, I found interesting. I only have 4 out of the 7, they are very old (From 55 years ago). I thought I would just share some scans from them, some people might find them useful. :)
And I just noticed there is two images the same. -_-” Sorry about that, I’ll replace it with a different one later… -_-‘
I don't reblog much here, so check out my likes instead.
Andy Goldsworthy’s art
So this wonderful human being put the lyrics of Let it Go through a bunch of languages on Google Translate and eventually translated them back to English and then sang those lyrics and the result is WONDERFUL.
I love translates and re-translates. This one takes it to a whole new level.
It’s a snail cozy!
This is the interior cover to John Varley’s Wizard. I know it’s technically sci-fi but the image is just so over the top it feels like it belongs here. And the amazing thing is, this is an actual scene from the book.
Whoah, I totally forgot I submitted this.
Guess I will need to go to London one of these days. And now I have this idea about a Tumblr travel guide.
A Tumblr travel guide is the best/worst idea I have ever seen.
Half of it will be in doge —
OH MY GOD I went and googled “doge” to get an image to cover with WOW SUCH BAGEL VERY POTATO MANY CREAM CHEESE and there was ALREADY A DOGE TRAVEL GUIDE IMAGE THERE
This article is basically ‘Amtrak for Non-Riders’ and is great for both the Tumblr Travel Guide and anyone interested in the Amtrak Writer’s Residency.
Props to Blue Willow bookstore in Houston for this display.
In case you didn’t know, it’s cold outside … really cold. So cold in fact that according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, 88.4% of the Great Lakes’ total surface area was covered with ice as of Thursday. According to USA Today, that’s approaching the all-time high of 95% ice coverage set in February 1979.
Of course, that 88.4% is for all five lakes, but they each have their own numbers:
— Lake Erie: 95.8%
— Lake Huron: 95.5%
— Lake Superior: 94.6%
— Lake Michigan: 82.3%
— Lake Ontario: 43.4%
It’s about damn time!
Nestled between hills in the eastern Sahara desert bordering the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt is an awesome piece of land art entitled Desert Breath. Between 1995 and 1997 this site-specific installation was created by the D.A.ST. Arteam, comprised of installation artist Danae Stratou, industrial designer and architect Alexandra Stratou, and architect Stella Constantindies.
8,000 square meters of sand were displaced to create large positive and negative conical volumes which form two interlocking spirals that expand from a water-filled center across an area of 100,000 square meters.
17 years since it was created, Desert Breath still exists, “becoming through its slow disintegration, an instrument to measure the passage of time.”

Man I spent all day trying to make this sweet-ass Carol Corps mug, and once the ink was baked it lost all it’s pigment! Ugh! Maybe this is why I hardly ever see “Sharpie” style mugs out there with anything other than black?
Oh wow. Bummer about the colors, but what a great job you did!
Makes me want to go to one of those paint-your-own ceramics places.
Try Pebeo Vitrea glass paints. They’re pricy, and smelly, but the pigment stays true once you cure it in the oven.
