Branching Out

dead_cover-introThe weather is lovely and sitting at the computer feels like a crime so we won’t offer much commentary on today’s Project Doolittle “Dead.” Because it’s this time of the year when we visit the forest regularly for walks we used branches as a new material, also to make the title a little less obvious.

Just two important remarks. One: we only used branches that were already broken so it is eco-friendly, should you care. Two: the lettering uses some tape but no Photoshop shape distortions. We built the actual letters manually (and mostly we just found appropriately shaped twigs).

    So awesome! In our women’s group this week, we collected dead branches and other items from nature to make a baby mobile for a neighbor about to give birth. Love giving life to things that we see as dead — and love what you did here!

    This is very inspiring. Not just for the wood and glass, but for the cool little Ikea moment, too.
