happy things for hump day, 2012.05.23

It’s Wednesday. I need some happy things to get me over that hump in the middle of the week. I thought you might, too; so, some of the things that have made me smile recently:

  1. Checking out the totally awesome video game inspired stitching of gatchacaz over on deviantART.  It’s freakin’ amazing.  Just check out this blackwork Flygon:

    Craft envy – I haz it!

  2.  (Speaking of Pokemon) Considering the awesomeness that could result from the combination of Pokemon and a tactical RPG set in feudal Japan in the upcoming Pokemon Conquest.  Check out the trailer:

    I feel the need to preorder…

  3. Browsing 19th century watercolor sketches of Chinese and Japanese marine life as seen in the manuscript Afbeeldingen van Chinese vissen, HS 433 (Images of Chinese fish) hosted by the University of Groningen Library. Some of my favorites:
     Lepidotrigla japonica (Bleeker, 1854)
    inktvis Euprimna morsei (Verrill, 1881)
    [Found via BibliOdyssey]

That’s it for now! Happy Hump Day!! Hope you too find something that makes you smile.
