It's March 1st and we're expecting 20 cm of snow overnight. Might as well develop an appreciation for the stuff. Check out Sonja Hinrichsen's Snow Drawings, which were made a couple of weeks ago in Colorado, with the help of five volunteers. Via BB-Blog. (The kids are running to the window -- the storm has officially started.)
This illustration is a perfect description of my relationship to winter. I am thinking of buying a print. I found Virginia Lee's website after happening upon a book she illustrated -- Persephone -- on Amazon.
Although this is the finished print, if I were still teaching the first grade, I think I'd make up similar work sheets for my class to complete. They'd make a fun display. (See also Beckett for Babies, one of my own failure, of which there are many.)
This little cabin hanging off the side of a building in SF is an art installation. I wish it were actually, you know, a little cabin with someone curled up beside a tiny woodstove inside it. Via The Hairpin.
Those crazy Parisians -- the latest thing is scaling buildings. Well, looking as if you are. This is an art installation by Buenos Aires-based artist Leandro Erlich -- that's a giant mirror and the people are actually climbing all over that facade on the floor. See more photos on My Modern Met.
