The Medium of My Medium is My Canvas

“Brazilian miniature sculptor Dalton Ghetti creates these little lovely works of arts all from pencils.  These pencil sculptures are a side project for the professional carpenter, who has been perfecting this art for the last 25 years. Dalton uses a razor blade, sewing needle, a sculpting knife, a steady hand and lots of patience to meticulously carve the graphite which can take anywhere between a few months to a few years. Over time he has broken many works in progress and keeps them in what he calls the cemetery collection. One of the most fascinating things about these tiny works of art is that he has never sold them, only given away to friends as gifts. Ghetti is currently based in Connecticut.”

Jim Lee Memory Lane Over at Nerdage

My favorite comic book artist Jim Lee is honored over at Matt Price’s Nerdage blog by taking a look at, what Matt believes to be, his top 5 comic-book runs.  After viewing them…I have to agree, but the early 90s X-Men 1-11 run would have to be my favorite.  Would you believe that my older brother actually owns all 11!?  YEAH!!!  But you would need the entire Expendables cast to even get within a sniper shot of the collection.
