Alice’s Tattoo Wonderland

It’s safe to say this woman might like Alice in Wonderland. Maybe a little too much if you ask me. Puts the Twilight fans to shame. The Tattoo Artist should get a prize for patience and talent. That’s quite a work of art.

Daily Nails

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Nails


I’m a brat when it comes to manicures. I always need my nails to be perfect and have a hard time finding a manicurist I love. It’s not only because I’m picky, which I am, but it has mostly to do with the fact that I used to bite my nails and, unless they’re perfect, I bite and pick until I have no nails or cuticle, and that’s yucky. My pickiness also extends to nail art. I’d never do it. ever. I just don’t like how it looks, but you have to admire the girl from The Daily Nail.

She not only finds creative ways to decorate her nails, but she does it every single day. Talk about sticking to something. She’s been at it since only September 30th and I wonder how long she’ll be able to come up with unique things. She has some quirky and hilarious nail designs. Here are some of the funniest ones.


Does it make me neurotic that I couldn’t stop thinking that her cuticles won’t survive this ordeal?

DIY Halloween

I’m a huge fan of Halloween. Not because I’m a fan of trick or treating or because I’m into anything spooky (I’m the biggest coward ever!), but because I’m a huge fan of dressing up. This year I took it too seriously and did not one, not two, but four costumes. I’m especially a fan of making my own costumes. It’s, like one of my professors said, a chance to be an Art Director and show your creativity.

American Apparel knows this, and is using people’s need to show their creativity as a way to promote their brand and the versatility of their clothes. In their yearly Costume Contest, customers upload their homemade costumes to show off and be scored. The prize is just a a$100 gift certificate, but there’s already 1,163 submissions for this past Halloween.

I’m not going to re-post any of these, but I’ve decided to show my favorite homemade costume made by one of my good friends.

All Together Now, Again.

Remember how I was obsessed with an ad and decided to have a little fun with it?

Well, someone decided to one up me, but they decided to have A LOT of fun with it.
Isaac, a friend from London who likes videos and pictures (a little too much if you ask me), decided to prove himself worthy of big projects and show his talent.
He decided to give up a looooot of his  time to pay homage to the ad in a way more labor intensive way.

I’m impressed (and kind of jealous!)

Amazing work Isaac.

Moleskine Art

I bought a moleskin more than a year ago thinking I was going to fill it up. I didn’t know what I was going to fill it up with, but it’s still there waiting. Some might call me capricious, but I’m just easily distracted by bigger and better things (or so I like to tell myself). 

I found an amazing post on The Jailbreak  about Quoteskin a perosnal project by graphic designer Lee Crutchley who uses his pens and a Moleskin to illustrate  some of his favorite quotes, thoughts and music lyrics. 

Some might say I’m easily impressed (it’s a virtue), but I do admire his ability to take two simple objects and a simple concept and turn it into something that makes me smile.  Here are some of my favorites:

For more click here.

And to make me feel even more useless here’s a link to the My Moleskine 2.0 Exhibition which shows even more creative things to do with your moleskine.
