Crafts: Game of Thrones Pouch


Prints available for purchase from Etsy.
"This pouch is completely handmade of 4 oz vegetable tanned leather. Everything you see is all hand tooled, the pouch is also hand-stitched. The famous "Winter is Coming" phrase was burned into the leather using a wood burning tool, I think it came out quite nicely. I also installed a metal swing clasp with antique finish to give an aged look to it. The belt loop riveted to the back has a snap fastener that fits any belt or strap size. The leather itself is very sturdy and fairly rigid with burnished edges and dyed with a dark brown antique dye to really bring out the details. I dragged the applicator across the leather to give it a wood grain look.

I used Super Sheen finish to protect the leather and make it water resistant."

Alternate takes on the American Civil War have been a literary niche for a while now, covering angles from the survival of President Lincoln to the South winning the war. Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will continue that peculiar institution with a future HBO series titled Confederate.

Author Chuck Wendig gives you a handy top 10 list article to help you Survive and keep creating Art, in this unfurling Age of Dumb "Everything is dumb right now. From nose to tail, we have become the dumbest, saddest pig at the county fair. Historians will not refer to this period as THE DARK AGES, but rather, THE DUMB AGES. The greatest question I get, right now, is how to simply persist creating art and staying motivated and creative in this epoch of syphilitic dipshittery, so I thought I’d bop in here and try my hand at answering that."

Every once in a while I come across an Etsy gallery I love from beginning to end. Tom Ryan's Studio is one of them. If I had two hundred bucks to drop on posters or a landlord reasonable to take payment in used posters, this gallery would be plastered across my wall as we speak. Alas, the closest I'll ever come is plastering Tom Ryan's work across my blog.  Hopefully, someone out there will be able to send some of the business I can't afford to send his way.

The 25 most influential people on the internet, according to TIME Magazine.

All the Marvel Superheroes Who Should Die in Avengers: Infinity War “Time to kill some superheroes! Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirmed to JoBlo that Avengers: Infinity War will be the last appearance for some central figures of the MCU, which means they might shuffle off their mortal capes or retire to their secret, woodsy homes… or alien planets or state-of-the-art mansion towers. But hopefully a bunch will get killed. Don’t look at me like that! Marvel needs to show some stakes, especially if the long-promised fight against Thanos is going to live up to the hype as something on a scale we’ve never seen before. Considering their longevity, significance, and power, here are the heroes of Infinity War, ranked by killability.”
