  • Faux Fur the Wall

    Trophy animal heads aren’t just for hunting lodges and rustic restaurants anymore, especially when they’re whimsical instead of furry. There are some pretty terrific alternatives to actual taxidermy heads that aren’t trying to look real—they’re definitely tongue-in-cheek.

    We love the storybook look of the doe heads at Misfit Menagerie on etsy (and only $32!).

    The terrifically talented Tamar Mogendorff has a linen version that you can personalize with your choice of head and antler color--and the antlers are sequined. (And don't blame us if you find yourself stuck on Mogendorff's site; her plush animal offerings are amazing!)

    Finally, over at mc&co, there's a tightly woven wicker bull's head that makes us smile every time we see it.

    The best part? No animals were harmed in the making of this hip home decor.

  • Perfect for Budding GreenBox Artists!

    All an artist may need is some paper and a pencil, but let's face it, sometimes the only thing your imagination draws is a blank. That's why we love these artistic imagination-starters:

    Let's Make Some Great Art is an interactive book with all sorts of ideas to launch from, based on famous artists ranging from Van Gogh to Bourgeois. You'll learn things like how to make a mobile and how to perfectly space the elements of a face.

    Create a Comic Project offers a bunch of choices for lovers of all things manga, including blank templates (just the boxes, no art) and comic templates (art, in black and white or color, but no words).

    Finally, we at GreenBox are especially partial to children's artist Eric Carle, whose reproductions are available at our sister site, oopsydaisy.com. And once in awhile, we all like to return to our childhoods, right? This spiral-bound Eric Carle drawing notebook features space for drawing and space for writing, so you can create your own classic.

    Talk about thinking outside the manilla-paper box.

  • Calling Young Writers and Artists

    The call for entries has gone out: it's time again for students to enter their very best for consideration in The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.

    Each year, the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers holds this prestigious contest, open to teens in grades 7 through 12. Students can submit works in any of 28 categories of art and writing, with submissions judged by some of the best in their fields, including past winners. Awards range from recognition at local ceremonies, all the way up to receiving a gold medal at Carnegie Hall, having work shown at nationally known galleries, and publication in national magazines and anthologies.

    Scholarships awarded add up to a quarter of a million dollars annually.

    Past winners of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards include Andy Warhol, Richard Avedon, Sylvia Plath, and Joyce Carol Oates.

    Here's your chance to add your name to that list--good luck!

  • Ginger, Dear!

    Every host with the most and hostess with the mostest will be serving ginger-infused beverages this season.  It adds just the right amount of festive zing to anything from lemonade to club soda to spiced cider (let your imagination go). And—bonus!—it’s actually pretty easy to make your own ginger syrup.

    Here’s how:
    You’ll need 1 small ginger root (3-5 inches long, available in the produce section), 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of water. Peel the root with a vegetable peeler and grate it into a small saucepan. Add the sugar and water; boil until the sugar completely dissolves. Remove pan from heat and, once it’s cool, strain the syrup (removing all the grated ginger) into a clean glass bottle or jar.

    Add a little or a lot to any beverage for an instant ginger zip. Cheers!

  • Fort Myers Art Walk

    Hard as it may be for our chilly northern readers to imagine, there are places in the US where people are still gallivanting outdoors, even after the sun has set. Fort Myers, Florida’s Art Walk happens in the downtown River District the first Friday of every month from 6-10 PM. In addition to galleries and museums, there are retail shops, community centers, and even a tattoo parlor on the route (grab a brochure & map at a participating business).

    You can walk the route (it’s Florida, remember!) or hop on the free trolley that runs during the event. And when it’s over, the Art Walk After Party gathers artists, collectors, gallery owners, and general hipsters for after-hours fun.

  • Getting to know Deborah Brenner

    When we're asked what led us to our careers, many of us think back to choices made as teenagers of majors, universities, studies abroad… While Deborah Brenner may have these same influences that led to her career today (art history major!) her life experiences have really shaped her path. Take a look at this illuminating article that may have you seeing Deborah Brenner’s artwork in a whole new light.
