It's Drawingmachine! Love at first sight, people. This amazing art is like getting a three-for-one special...sculpture, installation, AND drawing. Eske Rex created a construction involving two pendulums, each suspended from a tower construction and connected through "drawing arms" and moveable joints (check out the video). A ballpoint pen resting on a drawing surface covered with paper is mounted at the point where the pendulums come together. The pendulums are set in motion by hand, and their movements are represented on the paper. The movements of the pendulums affect the entire room, and the experience is totally engaging. While the rhythmic repetitions cause you to pause, the drawing emerges on the paper. Now that's some serious art.

Just some happy art today, brought to you by The Paper Nut. I love the graphic images and bright colors...two of my favorite things when it comes to print and design. I've been wanting to create some letterpress posters for a LONG time, and coming across work like this really gives me the itch...in a good way.

Oh. My. Sometimes I come across art that completely takes my breath away. I'm over-the-top for these beauties. A Southern girl like myself, Katherine Sandoz is smitten with (and resides close to) one of my favorite places...ever! Savannah, Georgia. I visited this little piece of heaven a couple of years ago with my mom and three sisters, and we all fell in love the minute our tires crossed the county line. I can certainly see how such an inspiring place has fueled Katherine's unbelievable work. Makes me want to grab my brushes and get to work!

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Pecans
Foodie post day...brought to you by The Parsley Thief. I can't remember exactly how I came across this amazing bites blog, but I'm so glad I did. It never disappoints in the taste department, and the ease of each recipe is an added bonus. This week brought Baked Pasta with Mini Meatballs to my dinner table...perfect for a rainy, cold night...and this weekend might just have to bring Ricotta Pancakes. Who's hungry?!
