We are all connected; To each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically…Not only are we in the universe, the universe is in us.

Our children are disconnecting with nature. By the time they are seven years old, most youngsters have been exposed to more than 20,000 advertisements. They can identify 200 corporate logos, but they cannot identify the trees growing in their front yards.

 Octopus-Inspired Design Ideas

The octopus, with its eight writhing tentacles and otherworldly appearance, has fascinated and inspired mankind since we first explored the oceans. While we may no longer write myths and legends about tentacled sea beasts, these modern octopus-inspired household designs are enough to inspire a dread of the deep. Some of us might not feel comfortable facing a slimy octopus, but the artists and designers behind these octopus products consider them be great sources of inspiration for their artworks. That sleek black leather octopus chair could be Poseidon’s throne, while those octopus chandeliers might make you feel like you’re 20,000 leagues under the sea.

Miniature Worlds Emerge on Top of Wooden Animals by Maico Akiba     

Sekai, Japanese  for ‘world’, is a series of clever sculptures by Maico Akiba, in which tiny little worlds emerge on the backs of wooden animals. The sculptor and illustrator collects the small figures from Souvenir From Tokyo, the National Museum of Art and Design Tokyo museum shop. She uses miniature trees, cars, people, and even telephone poles to build the detailed scenes on wooden creatures like a panda bear, a hippo, and a turtle, who co-exist with the green landscapes glued to their backs.

Qaw the Raven


This is not my costume! I am posting this because I had a hand in making it, and I had the honor of getting some photos of the completed thing. This year at RMFC I took a real camera with me for the first time to a con. I’m super glad I did, because Qaw was there!! I made the mask and claws for this on commission. The mask was done on a modified base by Crystumes. I sculpted on her crow base to make a raven’s beak, and added faux fur, hand-set about eleventy billion feathers, and hand-set an equal number of boar bristles for the rictal bristles on the beak. I was so super excited to see it in action. It’s delightful to see something I worked on, hopping around!

Qaw stopped by my dealer’s table and attempted to steal the plush gryphon Shard owned by my table-mate Jess Owen (see second to last photo), then kindly allowed me to follow it around for a few impromptu photos! I didn’t have any hand in making the rest of the costume, including the really neat vest and pants. All photos are mine, except for the last one, when I bumped into Qaw while wearing Kinglet, and my husband was able to get a photo.

The very awesome sloth in these photos is Tica. I traced down her FA gallery by searching her name: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/tica

Qaw is NOT mine. Photos posted with their permission! Qaw on FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/qaw/

There are an increasing amount of threatening conflicts in the world, in case you haven’t noticed, but I’m sure you did. Here some quotes from wise wen on the topic:
Friendship is the only cure for hatred, the only guarantee of peace. (Buddha)
You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place. (Jesus)
