#BobRossOnTwitch mani

To celebrate the new addition of the Twitch Creative channel, the team began The Joy of Painting marathon on Oct. 29, Bob Ross’ birthday.

Kill la Kill’s Senketsu scarf

Angry Birds Halloween candy bowl

My Mom is a total Angry Birds addict. The “Wheeeee!”’s and the sound of crashing have been my evening background noise since she discovered the game for her iPad. So I thought it’d be cute to make her a Halloween themed Angry Birds candy holder.

White Lotus vs. Red Lotus nails

When Avatar: The Last Air Bender came out, I thought it was the epitome of what animation should be. Then along came The Legend of Korra to rocket the standard to new heights.
