Mobile party at the door

I totally like art that’s good.
I especially like it when it’s…creative and I guess I probably admire an artist a lot when they think and create something that I probably couldn’t.

However, it’s also rad when somebody takes something that’s normal and familiar and turns it into this cool art piece that would never occur to you even though it’s so simple.  This isn’t a groundbreaking thought I’m having, but it’s cool to be reminded of- it can be motivating.

SO. I’ve been into feathers lately and wanting to incorporate them into lots of things, but don’t actually make that many things in the end.
But I was looking at Stand Up Comedy’s online store today and saw these feather mobiles from an artist named Joanna Bean from LA. She makes lovely things.



Super pretty and ethereal right?

And I think the feathers she uses are probably from wild birds and are really pretty and more expensive than the ones I picked up at Michael’s several months back, but I thought I should give it a go.
Imitation=flattery, right?

Here’s my 2-hour attempt at my own mobile…


Not totally shabby yeah? Mildly shabby, but not entirely! Also not worth $150 (I will totally sell this to you for $150 and send Joanna Bean $50.  Possibly $75)

But it was fun.  I also made a chocolate cake using a can of diet coke. A productive evening to say the least!

Buy things from Stand Up Comedy!!! It’ll be fun.
