Another really good quilt by someone else's mom.


Etch - A - Sketch

Etchings by George Vloshich III.  This guy is the real deal.  Way too expensive for me to buy, but I very much enjoy his art work.  He also deserves credit for a top quality Website.

I live in a family that likes the TV show Friends - I watch one episode everyday - which means I have seen every Friends episode about 14 times.  I enjoy the brief glimpse of etch-a-sketch art that is hanging on the inside of the door at Joey/Chandler's apartment.

Toothpick Art by Phil Rice

The Toothpick Story:  The artist was born in 1953.  After some free form toothpick work during his teenage years - he set out on his first serious project in early 1975 - a self  portrait.  The medium is flat toothpick and Testors model glue.  The project was built to scale - i.e., life size.  The completed toothpick man stood 6 feet tall. 

You can view the posted pictures of the complete body, and also a close up of the face/head, which was the most artistically and technically demanding part.  As you can see from the side by side comparison, there is an uncanny resemblance.  In a tragedy of epic proportions, this piece was completely destroyed in 1980.

After building a life size self portrait in toothpick at the age of 25, the logical question was what to do for an encore?  The obvious answer was to build a 3 inch cube.  The original cube was completed in 1977 and has been "missing" since 1982.

The photos are not the best quality, but what you see is the best available.

The politically incorrect alphabet.  This guy is very funny, and I love the art work.  He calls himself the headmaster.  Gets a vote from me for top 10 Website.
