The incredible lightness of being.....done!


Mystery project Two, part A and B are DONE, their photos taken, the patterns written. I have 20 more swatch rows, one more photo and a little photo editing, then my designs will be winging their way to judgement. Wish me luck.

To celebrate, I goofed off a little, and surfed for some info on a perfume. I got a little sidetracked and two clicks over, I found these knitted gems featured in
HOARD Magazine, by artist Ryan Burghard. When I was a little girl, creations like these would have earned a serious spanking for fucking around in Mom's sewing gear AND the laundry basket. (That is DEFINITELY one of my father's socks on that lady's face. Now it's art. Go figure...)

I understand about how one link leads to another while surfing, so that you become so sidetracked you forgot where you first started, but this is the funniest thing I have seen in awhile! How could they keep straight faces while having their pictures taken? And where do you find this stuff? Did you ever find the perfume info?

I was looking up a scent called FlowerBomb. Hoard did a write-up on it, and that's what led me to this page...I just wanted to see what else they featured. Now I know.....

Ewww....if the artist wanted to be disturbing he certainly succeeded!
Then the usual blah, blah about this being a way of exploring alternate gender identities; huh? this is the way to do it wearing knitted genitalia on your face? Bets, this HAS to be a joke!

Good luck on your Mystery Project!

Yes, ewww, but I am DYING to know what he charges for his "work". Because if it's a mint, you and I are going for it, Enid.

:-P

is the guy's website. Holy schmoly, if I had known I could make money by making a mask out of a jockstrap, I'd have done this long ago.
