In case you were wondering, I only eat the legs of a frog. Some folks at Serious Eats disagree.

Watercolor and ink on a post-it.

day 28



Abstract veal.

I don't eat veal... actually one of the few meats I don't eat. But other people do. So here's a guide to the cuts.

Black pig, completing the trifecta. (which may become a quarfecta??? I'm pretty sure that's not a word, but I'm going with it).

day 26


Black sheep.

I'm really liking the abstract quality of this style of meat sections. very animal as art. Also, I think it kind of looks like stained glass, which is also cool, or at least I think it is.

Edit: Apparently I am painting too many butchery charts, as no. 5 should be "breast" and not "belly." I guess I just want everything to be pork belly.

How to butcher a carrot into coins.

After a meat-heavy (not surprisingly) start, I think this week shall be vegan butchery week. No, not chopping up vegans. Butchering delightful fruits, veggies, and other non-animal based life forms.

day 16


origami cow. triple boom? anyone?

This one is admittedly, a little wonky. My fault, not the fault of the instructions, available at Marcel's Kid Crafts.

day 15

4.5 inches, nose to "tail"

origami lamb. double boom.

Step-by-step instructions, again, from Origami Club.

day 14

5 1/8 inches, snout to tail.

It's an origami pig. boom.

I got this idea from Design Sponge*s recent post on the origami goodness over at Origami Club. As luck would have it, I received some Muji origami paper for xmas. And here we are.

So, that's the full and exciting story of why and how I did this little origami pig.

That was far more print that it deserved.
