My girlfriend and I have decided to do commissions of Pokemon to raise money for Christmas gifts.
If you commission a drawing you have four options, being who illustrates and who colors.

EXAMPLES:

  • The first column was colored by me (Charlie).
  • The second column was colored by Chip.
  • The first row was illustrated by me.
  • The second row was illustrated by Chip.

Pick Chip for a more faithful illustration, and me for a more stylized rendition of the Pokemon.

Commissions are $15, or more if you’re feeling charitable, and will be open until Christmas eve 2013.

To commission a drawing, email saidcharlie@gmail.com with your choice of Pokemon and preferences of who draws what.

When your commission is completed, you will receive an e-mail containing the full size scanned image, and I’ll ask your permission to post it on this blog as well.

Want to spice up your tree with some super stupendous ornaments? 

Our new ornaments for 2013 are the Lederhosen Unicorn (sassy!), Krampus (naughty!), Santa Pickle (briny!), Creepy Horse Head (stop staring at me!) and Charles Darwin (evolutionary!). The Darwin ornament stealthily resembles Santa, so you can sneak it on your tree. It also pairs well with an Atheist Stocking

You can buy your own ornaments here

Krampus ornament!

With all the next-generation gaming consoles and video games coming out this year, many hardcore gamers are far too busy to sit down to a meal on Christmas day, let alone do all the shopping, cooking, and socializing that go along with it.

That’s why GAME, a British retailer, created the concept of the Christmas Tinner: a full day of Christmas eating served in one simple can. The meal consists of nine layers, starting with a fry-up breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon, then two traditional mince pies before moving onto the full Christmas dinner of roast turkey and all the trimmings, followed by a layer of Christmas pudding for dessert.

‘It’s the ultimate innovation for gamers across the nation who can’t tear themselves away from their new consoles and games on Christmas Day – the first all-in-one festive feast in a tin .’

Yum?

We’re kind of glad this one doesn’t exist yet.

This awesome wrought iron 1970 Volkswagen Beetle is the work of three artists at Croatian metal shop MG Vrbanus. The trio of craftsmen spent 3,500 hours on their creation and used 5,000 Swarovski crystals and hundreds of pounds of wrought iron and gold leaf to achieve the gaudy masterpiece seen here.

The piece began with a design sketched onto the VW’s sheet metal body, which was then removed, one section at a time, and replaced with designs inspired by ornate metal fencing. The work was done with such precision and care that the Beetle’s original windows still fit in the wrought iron body. And you can see the car’s machinery beneath it’s ultra fancy exterior.

This magnificent little car is available as a rental for weddings.

With the weather getting colder (that is, for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere) it’s high time we shared more images from the Department of Awesome Snowflake Photography. These amazing photos were taken by Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov, who adapted his camera in order to achieve remarkably close-up focus on individual snowflakes after they’ve fall on the ground. He illuminates his shots with a flashlight and the background texture is dark wool fabric.

Alexy’s images reveal the unique geometric shapes of each snowflake with such astonishing clarity that it’s easy to forget just how tiny they really are. Visit Alexey Kljatov’s Flickr stream to view many more of his remarkable snowflake photos.

There goes nature being incredibly awesome again. You may think you’re looking at a couple dried leaves, but you aren’t. These astonishing beauties are moths, specifically Uropyia meticulodina, from the family Notodontidae. Found in parts of China and Taiwan, the patterns on their wings mimic dead leaves so convincingly that they are considered to be one of the finest examples of camouflage in the animal kingdom.

Click here to watch brief video footage of Uropyia meticulodina in the wild. You still won’t believe your eyes.
