So. How about a little 1 minute needle felting tutorial to keep your mind busy tonight? I’m going to have some SUPER SPECIAL needle felting kits available soon (hopefully in time for Dcon and the holidays!) but till then, here’s a starter. #banishelectionworries #needlefelting #tutorial #notreallyallthathelpful #ButHey #ionlyhadoneminute
some pattern designs I made for notebook covers and business cards! (u can see samples on my twitter ^7^) Wagashi and sleepy rainforest <3 hopefully soon available in my online store..! //looks far away into the starry sky
Double-sided Death Stare Luigi charms/keychains we sold at smash, along with a bunch of other designs that we’ll post soon. Hopefully will be available online soon ><!! It was fun making the packaging.
I spent this past weekend in Detroit printing this beast of a poster at Signal Return, a pretty awesome letterpress shop. It’s pretty rare that I’m happy with a finished print, but this is definitely an exception. I worked with Lee Marchalonis who guided me through the printing process, she is an incredible letterpress ninja and I have SO much respect for her. The print was massive, roughly 18″x24″, so we had to develop some work arounds to accommodate it. It took a really long time (longer than I’ve ever taken to one project) but it was so worth it. Hopefully it’ll be available soon from the shop at Signal Return! Feeling so grateful to Signal Return for the opportunity and Lee for her expertise!
A coloring book with hand drawn Golden Ratio illustrations under way
Rafael Araujo is a Venezuelan architect and illustrator who has been drawing beautiful geometric
illustrations of nature, entirely by hand, for over 40 years. He creates the designs at an old drafting table with a pencil, compass, ruler and protractor.
Rafael was a teenager when he first learned about the golden ratio, represented by
the Greek letter phi (φ). It appears in nature as for example sea shells, plant leaves and branches grow in spirals where the ratio of the amount of turn from one branch to the next is precisely 1.618.
Rafael applies the golden ratio to his geometric formulas and leaves the construction lines intact to highlight this natural mathematical framework.

Araujo’s coloring book has a successful funding campaign under way and will hopefully be available sometime soon. In the meantime, the campaign is still running on Kickstarter with plenty of perks available to backers.
