i've often said, and o absolutely believe it, that you can tell almost instantly if an artists has made the effort to look at art, to study the craft if you like. and that's the feeling i get with pierre gonnord. there's a quality to these that says their maker has put his time in and i thank him for that...

i do feel sometimes that it feels like i'm trawling the internet for images of blue. with texture. and while that may or may not be true i couldn't overlook this by jennifer stegmann. all the texture. all the colour. not much online about her beyond that. love this tho.

keeping on with the ukelele vibe check this out - it's both profoundly depressing (for all thumbs players like me) and at the same time restores my faith in the world. i have the tab for this but when i play it it sounds like a cat has fallen into my ukelele! beautiful tone, beautiful touch - can't get tired of watching this.

been an age since a craft post. so here's this one (note - third of a series). i actually own one of these xcut machine and i love it. note though that the long bed he shows doesn't come as part of the xcut package so you need to order it.
