Can You Bear It?

I had to show you these little ‘bear rug’ coasters I bought from Dandyrions  as they are sooooo gorgeous and I decided to feature them as this week’s Saturday Selection.

 

I had to have the white one for my workroom, the brown and cinnamon ones for the lounge and an extra one as a gift for a bear-loving friend.  Great for Christmas pressies plus take a look at her fox friendly t-shirts and jumpers.  Go on, you know you’re intrigued.

Anthropomorphism in Art

I’m glad I’m writing that word and not saying it – it’s one of those words it’s a bit hard to get your tongue round even before you’ve had a glass of wine.

Anyway, I just came across this shop on Etsy called frighten run by photographer and artist Mari Lowery and thought I’d feature a couple of  her mixed media images as my ‘Saturday Selection’ today.

I like them because they avoid being twee or cute and actually verge on the nightmarish and odd which I mean in a good way.

Who knew that there is actually a team called Anthropormorphic on Etsy, of which Mari is the captain.  Great fun!

I find dolls really scary so I haven’t used any of her images where she’s used them rather than animals but take a look! http://www.etsy.com/listing/65161178/dollface-8×10-fine-art-print
