A swarm of locusts made entirely out of money. New installation by Origami artist Sipho Mabona on display at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.

Jennifer at Handmade Stuffs is up to her Adventure Time crafting tricks again, this time for an exceptional Snow Golem and Fire Wolf. She writes on her Flickr page:
These two were made as a custom order. The Snow Golem and Fire Wolf pup are from the Adventure Time episode “Thank You”. The Snow Golem stands about 22” tall and he has jointed arms. The branch decoration is removable and features shiny sequin “berries”. The pup is about 9” tall (not including ears) when standing. He has little “cracks” in his black fur showing his fiery orange insides.
