Scribbler Too sends you scribbling!

The interwebz are amazing, it seems like everyday there is something new and exciting that someone put out there, for others to enjoy and share.

Scribbler Too is one of these things. It’s a nifty little side that lets you, you guessed it, scribble something. What sets it apart are the tiny webs the programme adds to your lines, making your designs looks whimsical and fresh.

It lets you tune your brush settings, change your colors and the size of the canvas you’re drawing on. You can even upload images and scribble on them and save everything you’ve created on your computer, without the hassle to register somewhere.

You should try it! I bet the next birthday/wedding/bar mitzvah is just around the corner, and who wouldn’t like a creative, self-made card?


Harry Potter exhibition

While I am counting the days until I can finally see the last installment of the Harry Potter movies I can do nothing but stare longingly at the books on my shelves. American Potter-heads are more lucky than I, since they can visit a new exhibition at Gallery Nucleus (thanks to the Geek in Heels for the info).

It is called the Harry Potter Tribute Exhibition and features lots of scenes and characters from the series.

Not only will the lucky attendees receive a “complimentary butterbeer”, there will be a “Snitch Seeking Competition”, a “Mystery flavored Jelly Bellies tasting station”, a “Hogwarts Themed Photo Booth” and… and… and…

All those things make me want to move to L.A., pronto.

I mean, look at this lovely scene of our favourite giant, by Scott C.:



I can’t decide which Hagrid I like best- the one above or Cory‘s version:



Or have you seen Madeye Moody in a papercut before? Me neither.



This portrait of Luna Lovegood is enchanting



… as is this picture of Hermione Granger:



This little Harry is just plain cute



though he looks a bit scared. No wonder, with antagonists like this



Good to know that he has powerful friends, like him



who sometimes visit in this form



And with a feathery friend like this, what could go wrong?



We all know that in the end “neither can live while the other survives”





But this spell has proven itself before



And don’t we all know? In the end “all was well”.



Nintendo Nouveau

Being a romantic I’ve been a fan of art nouveau for as long as I can remember. The colors, the embellishments, the scrumptious ladies- what is not to like?

Alfons Mucha is one of my favourites- that is why his “Moon” is smiling down at me right now, as I’m typing this.



Thanks to GEE magazine this morning I came across 22 year-old designer Megan Lara. She’s a big art nouveau fan herself and a fellow geek.

Combining her two loves she created the Nintendo Nouveau series with some of her favourite gaming heroines:







Aren’t those lovely ladies? I just love the details: the rubies next to Princess Zelda, the flesh eating plants surrounding Princess Peach and Samus’ little ball? Heck, in this Picture she reminds me of ” Frog Prince” Princess with her golden ball. Enchanting.

Mrs. Megan Lara’s designs are available in printed form and on T-shirts.

I for one wouldn’t mind strutting my stuff in a Zelda shirt. Which one’s your favourite?
