1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Firefly/serenity & Buffy illustrations - Whedonverse art! on: June 27, 2012 09:02:55 PM
I was asked to be part of a nerd-themed show at an art gallery (the gallery is on the second floor of this amazing comic book shop of course), and I immediately knew that I had to come up with some awesome Whedonverse stuff.

Firefly is my favorite series so that was a no brainer. If you can't read it, one of the flags says "Big Damn Heroes".


I also wanted to do a Buffy drawing that I did for my partner, Spikefan, in the last Wedonverse swap. She graciously scanned it for me so I could submit it to the gallery  Wink It has a lot of hidden detail from the series.


If any of you happen to be in the Ft. Lauderdale-Miami area you should check out the show! It opens this Friday at the Bear and Bird Gallery. They've done a couple Star Wars themed shows and the crafts that people turned in were seriously amazing. I also have some prints of the Firefly drawing made and thinking it might make for a cool t shirt design  Grin

As the proud owner of most of these, I can say they're just as splendid in real life  Grin
The sketchbook is so awesome that I haven't wanted to ruin its perfection and crack it open to draw, hehe.

I received an awesome package from Spikefan today!
First this great semi-silhouette of Mal in felt. He's my favorite character in the whole Whedonverse so I'm super happy I now have something of him  Grin


A bunch of detailed carved stamps from the various shows that will get much use.


Another silhouette hoop, this time of Buffy and Spike (sorry for the blurriness). I like how you can tell it's so them just from the shapes, hehe.


A Jayne hat! I've wanted one for the longest time. There was also a little Kaylee inspired crochet ring that I forgot to get in the pics which I'm wearing already.


Aaaand my favorite thing I've ever gotten in a swap, a handmade firefly sketchbook! The book is made so well and it's even real leather. The embroidery is based off an illustration from my pinterest. It looks sooo good in needlepoint (better than the original!) that I think I'm going to copy it so there can be another on my wall  Cheesy


Thanks so much for everything, Spikefan! I'm so impressed by everything.

I have a sketch of what I want to do for a catching fire arena embroidery! Not gunna lie, I think it's going to look badass.

 I'm in the middle of doing a pattern for the second arena hoop I did (the one with the quote). There's a little less overlapping in that one so I figured it'd be easier for people to follow.

Just got back from the movie and I looooved it! So not what I was expecting. I'm a huge indie movie nerd, and that's what it felt like I was watching. I guess I was scared that it was going to be all Hollywood. I agree that the shaky cam was a bit much though (and this is coming from someone who actually enjoyed Cloverfield). Jennifer Lawrence was absolutely perfect. I loved Peeta too.

Thanks for the comments guys! It was my second time making a hoop like that. I think my poor fingers are ready to abandon ship haha.

Sakuracat, for the necklace I drew a Mockingjay in ink and colored in around it with colored pencil. Then glued it into the pendant and put resin in. It's kinda funny, that was another similar thing I had made for my partner scuttlebutt in the big swap. You both have the same favorite color  Cheesy

Thanks guys! I think I might like it better than the first one. The stitches are definitely neat and cleaner at least.
8  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: AND It all Started with the BIG BANG THEORY SWAP!!!! GALLERY on: March 21, 2012 08:31:44 PM
I had no idea that there could be so much awesome in one pencil holder! Love the pop up stand and the door on the front. You are a craft genius.
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Another Hunger Games arena embroidery, this time with a quote on: March 21, 2012 03:50:34 PM
My partner for the OTT hunger games swap (we opted to do bigger than tiny things) received so I can post this thing! Apparently I'm insane, because I started this so soon after finishing the first one, but I couldn't resist since I knew she liked that one. Here's the link to it if you missed it: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=404643.0

This took a little less time to finish, probably around 10 hours total, because I had already gotten used to all the new stitches I was using. For this I used 3 different variations of the fishbone stitch (pretty sure I invented them out of sheer naivety), back stitch, split, french knots, colonial knots, satin stitch, lazy daisy, and some weird satin with partially raised stitches that I made up on accident. I had actually wanted to make the forest even denser but I ran out of time. I also planned to add more things from the arena like in the last one too. This one only has the streams, cave, and career tent.

I received from SakuraCat today! I think its safe to say we both spent so much time on our projects that they could count as several "large" items  Cheesy
I got this incredibly detailed Katniss amurigami(sp?). I love it. She's now living on my bookshelf, far from where my cats will be able to nab her. Check out that tiny Mockingjay pin.


On her back is a fully functional orange pack. I didn't think there could possibly be anything that fits in there but I opened it anyway to see and found all the stuff she carried around in the games:

There's a water bottle, crackers, groosling meat, knife (those last two look especially realistic), iodine, matches, wire coil, and a square piece of plastic that apparently ran out of frame.

And last a really cool crochet necklace (perfect for me) and a patch.


Thanks Sakuracat!!
