Living stone

Posted: January 26th, 2019 | Author: | Filed under: T Writes | Tags: , , | No Comments »

Japanese artist Akie Nakata brings found stones to remarkable life with a little paint and a lot of imagination. She chooses stones that speak to her with the voice of a particular character.

“I feel the breath of a life inside each stone,” she says, and sometimes speaks to a stone as she holds it in her hand.

The animals she brings to life look like they could talk back!

To see more of Akie’s amazing art, check our her Instagram.

Small wonder

Posted: January 17th, 2019 | Author: | Filed under: T Writes | Tags: , | No Comments »

Paedophryne amauensis, a species of frog from Papua New Guinea, is the smallest known animal with a backbone. With an average body length of 7.7 mm, it lives in the leaf debris on the tropical forest floor. It’s nocturnal, so you won’t see it in the daytime. You probably won’t spot it at nighttime, either!

Christmas Gorey

American author and illustrator Edward Gorey’s pen-and-ink stylings perfectly capture the odd angles of all his subjects, including the Yuletide. I raise a glass of foamy nog to him!
