Useful Handmade Box – DIY Project

The name of this project was not born by accident. Using old cardboard boxes, pieces of inexpensive fabric (if not cut it), you’re pretty short on time for making a cute and very convenient “packaging”. Old magazines and sewing thread coils, colorful scraps residues from your crafts and bath towels of all sizes and colors will find their place in a heartbeat in it.

The Walking Bread

The Walking Bread is an art series depicting scenes from a certain similar sounding TV show (which itself returns on the 9th of February), only with the twist that all the characters are made out of bread. That’s right.. Bread!! A mixture of parody and downright creativity bring to life a miniature world in a way that captures the imagination. A moody zombie bread slice – scoops jam from the disembowelled body of another bread character in one scene.

Mark Nathan Willetts is the artist behind the series. He came up with the idea after jotting down some wordplay ideas for illustrations, and then decided with a moment of Eureka to take it a step further. Each of the characters were cut from a single slice of bread to make it seem as if they had just climbed straight out of a loaf. To further embellish the scenes, a range of buffet related items were used such as: cocktails sticks, BBQ grill etc. Finally lighting design was used to capture a comic book feel reminiscent of the Walking Dead comic book covers.

There are fourteen pictures covering 10 unique and fun scenes. Just be careful because this bread bites back!
