The Beady Eyed Craftster is our mostly weekly round-up of shiny (mostly) art and craft related links from across the internets.





• Let’s start with something a little bombastic; Yong Ho Ji’s sculptures of mythical beasts and half-human hybrids are in your face and a bit scary. Made from recycled tires and plastic resin they’re stunning pieces of work. [Via DesignBoom]

• Changing tack towards the delicate and ethereal, here’s some photography that’s right up this blog’s alley; Alexander Semenov takes awesome photos of undersea creatures, particularly jellyfish – check them out at Colossal.

• More undersea-ness now, with this cute octopus stuffie from futuregirl – there’s even a pattern available if you feel like making your own. (I notice that this little octy has been around since 2006, but it’s new to me; hopefully to you too.)

• Staying with needlework, we have a neat one-a-day project from Lucky Jackson; she’s producing a piece of embroidery every day, which is pretty darn cool. But even cooler is that last week’s subject was Margot Tenenbaum from The Royal Tenenbaums.

• All that yarn-work is making me keen to learn a new craft myself; so I was keen to see this Crochet 101 video tutorial from Haley Pierson-Cox via Craft. I’ve got to admit my first attempt to learn crochet, a few years back, was a total failure: my wife’s left-handed whereas I’m a rightie, and neither of us could do the necessary mirroring in out head! But maybe it’s time to try again.

• And finally; picture a Venn diagram with three circles – one is labelled ‘Craft’, one ‘Nerdy’ and the final ‘Epic’. What lies at the intersection? I’m pretty sure it’s this huge and amazing Pokémon cross-stitch by eponases – it shows all 151 original Pokémon! [Found via Neatorama]
