Amigurumi Video Tutorial: Zombie Finger

Autumn is here, the leaves are changing, the air is humid and fresh, and all the fun holidays are coming! =D

The first one to sneak up on us is Halloween! (Boo!) If you're plotting a party you know you need one of these: a spooky fun amigurumi zombie finger!

Follow along the video tutorial below and make your own! =D

On the next video we'll attach the nail to the finger, shape the finger and add a little detail to make it even more ghoulish! =D  

Don't forget to share your creations!

A quick peek into works in other crafts and arts.

One of the art forms I really love, besides crochet, is stopmotion animation. It intrigues me and makes me feel in wonder. All the patience and work it takes to make an object move just a little and in a way that it feels life like makes me admire it even more!

Stopmotion animation is really one thing I'd really like to do and I still think of doing!

Until then I leave you with Rogier Wielands' The Modern Dance. 

Be sure to check Rogier's website and his page on Vimeo!

In Other Crafts... Riusuke Fukahori

A quick peek into works in other crafts and arts.

Riusuke Fukahori is an amazing Japanese artist. He paints three dimensional goldfish using a complex process of painting in great detail between layers of resin. The final result is a powerful illusion, so powerful that when I first saw pictures of his work I thought the fishes were alive and swimming in water.

Check out the video below to see him work!

In Other Crafts... Mimi Kirchner

Have I told you lately that I love watching videos where artists talk about their art and their process? Well, I do!

I love how you can hear the passion in the artist's voice. I love how you can, for a few minutes, peek into their studio and their process. It's like peeking through someone's window and learning something new!

Mimi Kirchner is one of the fiber artists I've been following closely. I've never learned how to use a sewing machine, to be true, never had the interest but when I see dolls like the ones Mimi makes is when I regret it the most. Who knows, maybe someday I'll "glue" myself to a sewing machine and some videos, and only let it go when I learn how to do it =)

Move closely everybody and peek with me into Mimi's window! =)

Do you know what your fiber and yarns do when you're not around? Are you sure they stay still and all wrapped up in a ball waiting for you? After seeing Andrew Thomas Huang's beautiful video SOLIPSIST I'm not sure anymore... =)

Creative Jolt! They're Alive!

Stop motion always fascinated me! From the animation of the characters and their expressions, right down to the creation of entire new worlds! It was something that I always wished I could learn and I have not given up on that! It's never to late to learn something new! =)

In the meantime, while I can't present you with my own creations, I recommend you to hop on to 's youtube channel and have a cuteness overdose! ^^ 

Be Happy and Creative!

Creative Jolt!

Creative Jolt! is going to be a weekly pill of inspiration to get your creativity flowing for the week! Every Monday I'll share a video, image or other that helps me get inspired!

For the first edition of Creative Jolt! I'm going to share with you a video directed by Danny Gregory and Tommy Kane which shows artist Hayley Morris on her process for one of her animation videos.

I always love to see other artists talking about their process or simply just watching them create! I always feel that my creative battery is once again full. =)

 Be Happy and Creative!
