Screen Shot 2013-03-24 at 10.22.54 AM

What took so long?

This is my favorite new product of 2013 — it's not even close.

Reminds me of those motorcycles with outriders, only way more fun.

From the website:

..............................

Dog Walking Aid for Bicycles

Walk your dog safely while you bicycle.

Both of you can now exercise at the same time.

20"-long plastic arm with 8"-long nylon web leash.

This unique bike attachment keeps your dog at a safe distance from the wheel and spokes.

Flexible, durable, and waterproof arm installs easily, rotates up for storage, and can be quickly disconnected.

Made in U.S.A.

$39.99 (dog and bicycle not included. I wonder if this would work with Gray Cat.... How epic would THAT be on YouTube?).

Underwater Reefs and Landscapes — The paper art of Amy Eisenfeld Genser

1

From Colossal :

2

"Connecticut-based artist Amy Eisenfeld Genser recently completed a new series of coral reefs that she painstakingly recreates using rolled bits of paper and acrylic paint."

3

"Ahead of her upcoming exhibition at the Architectural Digest Home Show, Genser sat down with All Things Paper for a brief interview."

4

An excerpt on her process:

.................................

  Bbb

"These days I usually work with Thai Unryu [mulberry paper], but I have hundreds of papers in my studio from all around the world."

6

"I treat the paper almost as a pigment, layering colors one on top of the other to create different colors. My pieces are about a foot wide... I roll one layer on top of the other in all different thicknesses."

7

"I seal the roll with acid-free, archival glue stick, and then cut the long piece into sections with scissors or pruning shears. I have pruning shears of all different sizes to accommodate different widths."
