Mr Bean and The Web Pixies


First things first - what the hell??? I leave my humble online abode for just a few wee days and come back to find web pixies have been wreaking havoc in my absence. Pesky pixies. As soon as I finish this post I’m off to sort them out. Or at least taking a wee spin over to see what in the world’s going on at Photobucket…  

Anyway, back to blog business! I’ve another of those artists to share this evening that you’ll probably already be familiar with. Even if you haven’t come across the name Kyle Bean before, chances are you’ve stumbled across the British designer at some point in your wanderings.  Specialising in hand crafted models and props, his work pops up all over the place. My personal favourites have to be that funky chicken above and these fantastic matchstick insects:


Oh, and how could I forget about this book/laptop hybrid, a statement on “how we’re sourcing information”:


Not too shabby, eh? The words ‘want’ and ‘now’ come to mind. Speaking of books and loveliness, you may even have a sample of the talented Mr Bean’s work on your shelf beside you since he’s also tried his hand at cover art…


…as well as dabbling in the publishing world himself. This is his Guide For The Unlucky, an interactive popup guide on how to avoid falling victim to everyday charms and curses:


What were those two words again? ;) Find out more about it here, and don’t miss the wonderful little video preview when you're there. Anyway folks, hope you’re all well and having a lovely week. Must get by your places for a wee visit just as soon as I go confront these pixies!

Aaaarrrgh, Roisin! My head's about to explode with all the coolness you've presented here! You don't mind if I send you the hospital bills? ;).

Oh, and what was it now? Oh yes, Pesky Piksie Pestanomi! Wait, that never worked for Gilderoy Lockhart. No matter. It looks like you charmed your site back to its enchanted self again.

Fabulous stuff! Thanks for sharing this - I didn't know of his work before. So many talented people out there.

Yes, you go give those pixies a shake up. They can be quite the rascals the instant we look away...
