The Beady Eyed Craftster is our weekly round-up of shiny (mostly) art and craft related links from across the inter­nets. One little change this week – I’m giv­ing the button-eyed raven pic­ture a rest; too many raven pic­tures on the blog’s front page was … wait for it … murder. Do you see what I did there?

• Over on Colossal, Seung Mo Park makes incred­ible por­traits and pic­tures from art­fully snipped wire mesh. I find it pretty amaz­ing what unlikely mater­i­als can be used to make rep­res­ent­a­tional art.

• Featured on Make, check out this amaz­ing com­puter that Brent Thorne is build­ing. Why am I fea­tur­ing a com­puter on a art/craft blog? Because it’s made of wood. When com­plete, this intric­ate arrange­ment of cogs will com­pute and draw fractals.

• More unlikely mater­i­als; typo­graphy using knives, by Farhad Moshiri. I won­der how he got all those knives? Found, donated, bought?

• These 3D paper dia­monds are pretty cool, and don’t look all that dif­fi­cult to make. Not sure what one could use them for though – Christmas dec­or­a­tions maybe?

• I’ve been think­ing about get­ting back into lino-printing, and Nick ‘Linocut Boy’ Morley’s blog is full of inspir­a­tional stuff – why not take a look?

• This week’s nearly off-topic link: this art­icle on the BBC about a a theme park based around giant mech­an­ical anim­als. Worth check­ing out for the pic­ture of a giant wooden squid.
