I agree with that adage! Unfortunately, work and paying the bills gets in the way, but i have to admit, when people have a sense of humor and do what they do well . . dear god it’s soooooooooooo impressive! I have shown this mans work before, nothing seems to make me laugh more making my roomate question my sanity I think, but hey, I just think it’s damn cool, and freakishly funny! I also saw today amazing bookjackets by an illustrator who needlepointed them. That’s right . . I said it . . . she crossed over from craft to making money from Penguin books! Stellar!
OK so there are still a few hours left to my day . . I better start making something!

I can’t tell you how happy I am to finally be able to share this project with you. It pretty much consumed my life for the first 2 months of this year.
Penguin Classics! What a dream project. When I first did my Monster Quilt, I said I wouldn’t take commissions in embroidery… unless Penguin called me for a Penguin Classics cover. Sometimes you get what you wish for (times three).

Aled Lewis, whom we just had a chance to connect with in the magazine, is fast-becoming one of our favorite new artists. Aled has enough wit to fill up this entire, or his entire blog, because he is in the midst of “Make Something Cool Everyday” Project, where he makes something cool everyday. Right now, we are into his toy story pieces.
Sometimes there are 8-bit parodies, television parodies, but some of our favorite work are these toy parodies that at times mimic movie quotes and general pop-culture-ism.s
