Twisted wire sculpture by Ruth Asawa
Asawa on her work:
I started in 1962 when a friend of ours brought a desert plant from Death Valley and said, ‘Here’s something for you to draw.’ I tried to draw it, but it was such a tangle that I had to construct it in wire in order to draw it. And then I got the idea that I could use it as a way to work in wire. I began to see all the possibilities: opening up the center and then making it flat on the wall, and putting it on a stand.

An interesting read, and a similar theme to an upcoming exhibition at NYPL, which will focus on how Dickens’ characters have been portrayed visually over the years.
You’d think the NY Public Library would know this, but Sherlock Holmes was created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, not Charles Dickens. You might want to edit the original post.
Andrew Chase’s incredible steampunk animal sculptures mimic the range of motion of the real thing astonishingly well.
This is a limited edition exclusive print I drew for Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo in September. It features a Robot fighting an Octopus. I’m pretty happy with this, I don’t often get to do this much typography on my prints, so this was a fun change of pace. Let me know what you think?
