[this is an entry from a long time ago that I never posted. I guess now is as good a time as any]
I’d never thought of gingerbread as much of an art form before but I’ve spent all today looking at epicute.com which is a fantastic blog.
(I prefer picture blogs in a lot of ways, it takes me a long time to disseminate words but it’s so easy to look at a picture and drinking it in. The pleasure of looking is so different from the pleasure of reading. If I read a beautiful sentence it wurrs my brain into gear and I think about lots of things, which is what takes me time to read anything but looking is so instant and it kind of exists for itself so I don’t have to look at it 100 times to understand it or to think about it. /blether)
If you only feel like clicking one link click the UP! one.
(NB. I’ve never entirely understood putting so much hard work into something edible unless it is for a very special occasion but I guess the impermanence of it is part of the art. Still I feel sad that something really beautiful will be nommed. Even if it is really REALLY nommy)
In other arty crafty news. Trust me to find a flickr group called superhero fine art.
My favourite painting is this one of Rogue
Well what is it?
Batgirl looking, well, a bit confused but still gorgeous.

And here is my quickly sketched drawing of my favourite super villian Harley
