Colin Meloy & Carson Ellis' Wildwood.


I just finished reading Colin Meloy & Carson Ellis' Wildwood. It is a fantastic story about a girl who travels into a forbidden forest with her friend to save her kidnapped baby brother. The heroine likes to ride bikes and draw birds. All images by Carson Ellis and found on Design Sponge (check out their review of the book), unless otherwise noted.


The book is filled with beautiful illustrations by Carson Ellis, from small drawings to full page color spreads. I highly recommend you check it out.

I just found out that there is a sequel, too. Next on the reading list. Image via Harper Collins Childrens.

I Baked a Threadcake, Part 2.


Every year, Chris Cardinal & the t-shirt site Threadless.com run a cake-decorating contest, where entrants bake cakes that look like the shirts. I enjoy cake decorating, and their shirts, so I decided to make one again this year (here's last year's.)

The design my cake is based on is called The Sound of Silents. You can see my full entry on the Threadcakes site here.




I also made a video of the baking and decorating of the cake.

Hourly Comic, 2012.



Wednesday I participated in the Hourly Comic drawing. Inspired by John Campbell of Pictures For Sad Children, the hourly comic consists of one comic (panel) for every hour you're awake; a visual diary. Here's last year's comic. It's funny to see how they are similar, and I wonder how they'll change next year. (Right click to view larger image in a new tab.)
