Friday Things: 09/12 - the return!

LinksKristina PinoComment

[I've returned! It took a little adjusting for me to get back into the swing of things after my break, but things should be back to normal, now. Here's this week's digest of things that caught my attention recently.]

On Books and Comics: 


Ginger Alden, who was Elvis Presley's fiancée at the time of his death, is coming out with a book about their relationship during the last year of his life. Consider my interest piqued, though I'll probably wait a while to pick up a copy.

There's a great interview over at Comics Alliance with the creators of Lumberjanes. They have some wonderful responses to the questions that were tossed at them, about their outlook of the comics industry and where it's going, and how they feel about media for children.

On Art:


I'm usually delighted by pretty art done on post-its, and these paper cut-out post-its by Akira Nagaya are no exception.

How-to draw Minnie Mouse - cute and easy-to-follow video tutorial with a Disney Animation Academy artist.

Disney Princess portraits rendered into fine art paintings. Stunning.

I didn't know it was possible to create such beautiful artwork with... a typewriter!

 

 

On Tees:


If you're a fan of Studio Ghibli and like cute tees, you might want to check out Hot Topic.

Cool tee that Stephen Amell (from Arrow) is promoting for charity. Buy one if ya like!  

 

 

Other:


My pal Lauren Orsini has launched a blog with her husband called Gunpla 101. It's already rad, and it's only going to get better as they populate it with content.

(via BoingBoing) This guy covered 99 Red Balloons using red balloons to make all the sounds. Preeeetty neat.

[See ya next time!]
