yeti by esty gertzman

Oh, look at this guy. Isn't he just the loveliest? So fuzzy and fierce? He was made by Esty Gertzman, an artist in Amsterdam. I first saw the yeti in Esty's flickr photoset, then rushed to buy him on etsy. And now His Abominableness is in my home. I love the internet.

I love all of Esty's work- I can't link to it directly, but go to Work, then Sculptures, then 2001-2005 - the bronze wood "Hills and Ferns". Just incredible.

My blog posts have been few and far between these days. I've been out and about most evenings, and when I'm not out and about I have to decide - should I do, or post about doing? And doing usually wins out. I hope to have more time to work on my ongoing projects this week - the Big! Head! is finished, by the way, I just need to put his face on and take some pics. Oh my, is the Head ever Big. It kind of surprised me.

Speaking of out and about, on Monday I had a few pints with Annie of wexford girl. She is hilarious, stylish (amazing shoes), charming, and a brilliant artist, and we talked for hours. It was so much fun - thanks Annie!

Great to hang out with you too Jess. I love a girl who can match me Guinness for Guinness. If it wasn't a Monday I could have stayed chatting another four hours! Let's do it again soon.

LOVE the yeti, and as Ila said, the Etsy/Etsy thing is too cool!

Etsy. What a place. I never would have imagined any of this as a kid. A computer, in my house, and an etsy site........
