Matt Hawkins contributed his lovely papercraft Disney characters to the Boing Boing Flickr pool. His description: "Paper sculptures made of painted watercolor paper. I created Goofy and Elliott one facet at a time from the top down from watercolor paintings with only a 2-D sketch for a guide. My hope is that this improvisational technique would help capture the spirit of these characters, bringing them to life in a flowing organic way that defies the sharp corners and geometric forms from which they're built. Available at the Wonderground Gallery in Downtown Disney."
He explains, "Uncovered a new scene of this object that was discovered in the late 90s in a field in Southern Ohio or possibly Nebraska, the attribution on the coordinates was obscured."
Banks was the artist behind a number of trippy, beautiful ambient video projects like "Nature's Journey," in which he teamed up with one with one of my favorite ambient electronic musicians, Michael Stearns.
In the Boing Boing Flickr Pool the fractal-obsessed Fdecomite posts the latest iteration in a series of experiments with tessellated, Escher cookie-cutters. Bake-time expansion creates irregularities that lead to a chewy (literally) series of interlock-imperfections, which give old MC's classic a bio-organic air that rather invigorates it.
You can 3D print interlocking lizard cutters with a free model from Thingiverse. Fdecomite, if you're reading this, please post in the comments with a link to the cookie cutters you used here!
Update: From the comments, Fdecomite writes, "Hi, those are cookie cutters I made from aluminium foil.I also made some 3D printed Escher cookie cutters you can find in my Shapeways shop.
"The prettiest girl in China Town," a photo shared by reader Asgeir in the Boing Boing Flickr Pool. What I love most about this shot is the expression on the child's face, gazing up at the painted performer.
