What is tattoo Tuesday about?

October 31, 2017

Artist Pony Reinhardt of Portland-based Tenderfoot Studio produces wildly creative tattoos which she describes as a “cosmic cataclysm of the Ghastly Phantastic.” Images of the natural world mingle with stars and elements of sacred geometry in a style reminiscent of old etchings and woodblock prints. Reinhardt has also exhibited fine art at the Smithsonian National Gallery of Art and is a US Presidential Scholar of the Arts.

What am I all wrapped up in?

October 24, 2017

“Inspired by watching a single goldfish swimming around in a goldfish bowl, Japanese designer Daisuke Akiyama came up with a rather ingenious product: goldfish bubble wrap. By reinventing the standard packaging material, Akiyama – part of the design studio HAFT DESIGN – created the subtle yet magical illusion of miniature goldfish swimming around in each bubble. “We usually have an inclination to pop bubble wrap,” says Akiyama. “But by printing goldfish I’ve made it psychologically more difficult to pop.”

Unfortunately, it’s only a prototype and isn’t available for purchase. But word has it that Akiyama is working on commercializing his novel idea. It would make the perfect summer present, or at least the perfect wrapping.”

The Pleiades

Messier object 45 is known in many cultures by many different names – the water girls, the orphan boys, the lost wives, and in Greek mythology, the seven sisters, daughters of Atlas and Pleione.

Yes, I bought a Subaru and I am calling her Maia.  Judging from the picture above, I may need to invest in some new clothes.

“The Pleiades in Japanese culture are known as ‘Subaru’ and are usually referred to as being seven stars. ‘Subaru’ also means ‘unite’ or ‘unity’ in Japanese. However, when the car company Subaru chose the name for their business, they decided to depict only six stars in the company logo, supposedly because only six of the stars are visible to the naked eye.” – Lucinda Riley
