monsieur jambon


Our healthy pig here is modeling his tasty loins. Mmm he looks good enough to eat for Easter dinner. In all seriousness, he's made from only one sock, and there is very little wasted. So now you can feel good when the dryer eats your socks!

  6. What a incredible idea! We all have those random socks that became useless after the sock-mate mysteriously disappeared. Can't wait to try making one of those random socks into a cute little pig.

  7. I first visited this blog of yours a couple of days ago and simply love the tutorials, especially the "make useful" pages.
    Would it be at all possible for you to tell me how you reduced those tutorials and get them pasted on this beautiful blog?
    I have bookmarked your blog to ease my future visits...

  8. usually before I start to ink my image in a photo manipulation program (corel paint, photoshop) i set my page size/ image size to 8.5" x 11" and a dpi of 150 - 200 (the higher the better for small print, no need to go past 400). Usually my scanned in image is larger, so I transform it down to size. If you need specifics on the actual inking process (which would be a much longer write up ;), let me know, or simply google "how to digital inking".

  9. astrid, I found a write up for digital inking, which is simple, and to the point for beginners. I pretty much do the first 3 steps: getting started, cleaning up and using the pen tool- you can go further, but for my personal work i like to see the pencil marks. Copy the link:
