Sometimes, the best thing about art is the medium itself. Like these book-sculptures, by an artist whose name I can't seem to recall:

I LOVE these. Using a book as the base for sculptures that illustrate the book itself is brilliant. Things like this make me a tad bit jealous of folks that work in 3-D media. It just lends itself to much more creative means of expression. I haven't tried working in any type of sculpture in years, since I'm much better at 2-D art, but I'm seeing a pattern developing: the art that I'm most attracted to lately incorporates some element other than just a drawing. Maybe I should give it a go again.
