I’ll be watching you (Paul Kirchner rocks)

I saw this cartoon and it put me in a Small World frame of mind.

This cartoon panel reminds me a bit of last year’s snow globe, “Things are Looking Up.” It’s one of those pieces that elicits wild responses at shows where people either squeal and laugh and grin when they see it, or just look bewildered and mutter, “I don’t get it.”

Do you … get it?

Special Delivery

I loved the charm of this tiny bicycle delivery guy.

What better way to send a little love to someone special?

Small Arms

Been a little crazy around here, and I’ve neglected to post for too long.

I hope you love a visual pun as much as we do.

Bang!

I was asked recently if I had any snow globe featuring weapons. Hmmm, let’s see.

Keeping in mind that these sculptures are about two inches tall and completely non-functional, of course, the answer is yes. A look back at a few of the imaginary “weapons” we’ve created.

Bang! goes the pistol and Pyooo! Pyooo! goes the Ray Gun. The high-heeled cannon, a cross between fashion and self-defense, simply goes Boom!

Buck Rogers would be proud.

Fate Loves the Fearless

It was just a phrase in a magazine artiFate Loves the Fearless flying turtle snow globe Camryn Forrest Designs, Denver, Coloradocle, reading casually, waiting for my hair to be cut.

“Fate loves the fearless.”

I wish I could remember who said it and in what context, but I’ve lost the source.

The phrase stayed with me, reminding of some other words to live by, including “You miss every shot you don’t take, ” attributed to Wayne Gretsky.

Why a turtle? I don’t know: Perhaps the gentle sea turtle always appears to be flying and I took it one step farther, with a couple taking a leap of faith together, fearless and bold, holding on for the exciting ride ahead.

“Fate Loves the Fearless.” Ah, yes it does.

Perpetual Penguins

Adding and subtracting, combining and reducing, twisting and turning … Yep, art’s like that. We like M.C. Escher and his drawings of fantastic stairways where one climbs endlessly.

We like ice storms.

And we like penguins.

So what if you took penguins+icestorm+escher staircase and made … Perpetual Penguins.

Hey, nobody’s going to stop us, right?

Perpetual Penguins ice storm

The staircase is made of clear acrylic, with painstaking effort to cut each tiny stair to the perfect size and shape. When shaken, the globe bursts with the light of the Aurora Borealis reflected in the shimmering, dancing snow. And the penguins keep marching: up, down, sideways in the endless twilight. Perpetual penguins.
