Terrarium Alpha

Saturday

This is my first endeavor at creating a terrarium from one of my glass bulbs. You probably can’t tell, but there is an opening in the “stem” of the glass orb where I inserted the soil, perlite and the, almost leafless, plant. This terrarium has sustained itself for about 5 to 6 months, and as you can see the plants are doing great.

Legoland - tang style

So, I’ve been on a terrarium kick the past 2 months. The newest addition is my own personal Legoland. I’ve also put an updated shot of the Soy Sauce terrarium – it’s getting big.

 

All the terrariums I make are from old bottles and clippings from my existing plants. There are some more crazy concepts in this category coming your way. Stay tuned!

There’s a plant in my soy sauce

Wednesday
Soy Sauce Plant House

It’s springtime! I’ve been on a¬†terrarium¬†trip lately and I wanted to share my latest. I made this one a week ago and the plant didn’t have a flower. I think flower means plant is happy. This is a recycled soy sauce jar turned plant home. I used organic soil, perlite and some moss. The plant is, what my mom calls, a wondering jew. I’m not sure of this name and if it sounds racist, too bad. So, I guess I could say there is a wondering jew in my soy sauce.

I’m building another terrarium from an old radio tube, a ceiling fan mounting bracket a fish bowl and a few other odds and ends. Hopefully it will work – if so, expect to see it here.

Notice it's the lite version. Yumm!

Colored Pencils are Fun

Tuesday

Prismacolor pencils are awesome and they are made in the USA. That’s a double awesome right there. I did this illustration for a project a bit ago. To protect the identity of the client I have blurred their name – there is no way you can tell what that logo is. No way, Jose. There are a couple pieces of this project that were made by two of my colleagues, as well. It was fun.

Mixed media illustrations (oldies) / Free Things

Tuesday

Here are two illustrations I did a while ago. These also used some free stock and some custom art.

Planet Tang

Tuesday

Here are some weird photoshop illustrations I did for fun. These are mini worlds for you to explore. And yes, I did use a filter to help me do these.
