I have two things to brighten your day. One is a recipe for jelly cookies. The other is this creation by Djokson called Umi the Jelly. Her hobbies include drifting aimlessly and tending to her coral garden which, truth be told, would reduce stress if most of us spent our days doing the same. She seems quite at peace drifting among the colorful reef. Her tendrils, translucent flowing limbs, even the choice of background color all comprise a rather tranquil composition. This jelly creature is totally my jam or um…jelly, as it were. See, I told you this would brighten your day!
The introduction of LEGO themes like Friends and Elves have really added a number of enchanting pastel colors to the LEGO builders’ palette. This fantastic leviathan by jayfa_mocs makes great use of a number of these pieces. This beast is truly frightening, the stuff of nightmares for any honest fisherman or pirate crew.
The simple landscaping gives an ambiguous sense of scale, so you could imagine the immensity of this monster from the deep. The jaw deserves a closer look, where a variety of tooth and horn elements are used to create multiple rows of teeth in a small space.
Sea stacks are amazing vertical rock formations that stand in the sea, formed entirely by wind and water as the forces of nature break up part of the headland over time. There are some famous stacks around the world, for example, the Twelve Apostles in Australia or the Old Man of Hoy off the coast of Orkney in Scotland. Tirrell Brown has created a beautiful scene with sea stacks, just off the coast of the imaginary land of Mitgardia. The castle is centrally located upon one of the larger stacks, jutting out the sea with it’s small wooden pier. Tirrell’s sea is very striking, with the combination of dark blue and medium blue depths and transparent waves crashing against the craggy rock faces of the sea stacks.
