Random Thursday: Artistes at Random

Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.

I was in need of cool inspiration this week but had little time to go looking.

Lucky for me, y’all have my back!


Lovely Words
Margaret Shepherd draws words.
She sells them, too.
You need to see her poetry art—it’s stunning.

Permanent Playlist Spot

I’m hoping for audio-osmosis . . .

(I’m sure you could, Kev!)


Paper Mates!

Wolfram Kampffmeyer makes 3-D paper crafts that look like glowing computer models—and he sells the kits on etsy!

There are gorgeous dragons and bright foxes and noble rhinos
and wall art pieces from leopards to elephants, to regal mooses (meeces?).

Jane is All About The Unicorns, but I think I like the aardvarks best,
and not just because Mr. Kampffmeyer calls them antbears.

Paper Antbears

An antbear by any other name would still be totally adorable.

He also sells paper flamingo kits.

They’re a bit pricey, but this is art.

And flamingos.

Paper FlamingoGo look at the penguins.  You know you want to.

(thanks, Cha cha!)


Philosophy and Caffeine

According to the Unemployed Philosopher’s Guild,
which apparently ekes out a living selling fantastic mugs,
“The right amount of caffeine helps you adapt to the requirements of chaos.”

I’m hip.

(thanks again, caitlin!)


A Dubious Success

But incontinently funny.

And surprisingly true to life . . .

(Thanks, Vonnie — and Lynn and Cha Cha for introducing me to the joys of these boys)
