Works in Progress (yes, that is what I called it officially). A primarily-Pokémon art dump blog, because run-off from the NeR tumblr (no rules, might even include nsfw someday). Not my art; all accredited.
Zheng Chunhui, a famous Chinese wood carver spent 4 years engineering this master piece from a single tree. Based on a famous Chinese painting “Along the River During the Quingming Festival” the carving echoes the daily life of the 12th century Chinese local. The level of detail is stunning!
You can buy this from the designer and it’s really not all that expensive considering the time and materials that go into it. She has a bunch of really nice other stuff for sale, too, all custom made to order. And it’s always nice to buy things from the person who came up with them. Creating original designs is hard, and should be rewarded, especially when it’s an indie designer doing it. I’ve used to sewing skills to make my fair share of knockoffs, but this is too good. I really want one of these.
For the first time ever, Bill Willingham’s acclaimed, Eisner Award-winning series FABLES is presented in a deluxe hardcover edition collecting issues #1-10. When a savage creature known only as the Adversary conquered the fabled lands of legends and fairy tales, all of the infamous inhabitants of folklore were forced into exile. Disguised among the normal citizens of modern-day New York, these magical characters have created their own peaceful and secret society within an exclusive luxury apartment building called Fabletown. When Snow White’s party-girl sister, Rose Red, is apparently murdered, it’s up to Fabletown’s sheriff, the reformed and pardoned Big Bad Wolf, to find the killer. Meanwhile, trouble of a different sort brews at the Fables’ upstate farm where non-human inhabitants are preaching revolution - and threatening Fabletown’s carefully nurtured secrecy.
