Congratulations to @ericcolossal on his deal with ABRAMS/Amulet Books for fantasy cooking graphic novel Rutabaga the Adventure Chef

Amulet Gets Cooking with Colossal

Eric Colossal sold world rights to his fantasy graphic novel series, Rutabaga the Adventure Chef, to Carol Burrell at Amulet Books. The series follows an “adventure chef” named Rutabaga, who travels to a “fantasy land” to find bizarre ingredients to cook in his enchanted cauldron. The first book in the series, due out in March 2015, will include pages straight out of Rutabaga’s cookbooks, with recipes that readers can make at home, such as “Chocolate Peanut Butter Pots” and “Perfect Pep Potion.” Charlie Olsen of InkWell Management brokered the two-book deal.

Glass Colored Ribbon Hang Inside a Grace Cathedral, Anne Patterson

Walk into the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco from now till the end of February and you’ll find a gorgeous art installation that features 20 miles of ribbon cascading from the church’s vaulted ceiling arches. Artist Anne Patterson is behind Graced With Light, an installation consisting of nearly 1,000 satin ribbons with colors inspired by stained glass. It took the artist months to prepare, which she did in her art studio in Manhattan by constructing a 3/16-inch scale model of it with embroidery floss. Then, on site, it took Patterson and the Grace Cathedral community eight days to hand-assemble the project.

Crane Operator Captures Shanghai | Via

Chinese crane operator Wei Gensheng saw many incredible photo ops while working on a crane over 2000 feet above the city of Shanghai, and there he found the perfect subject for his photography- the city itself.

These soaring sky high shots are quite literally breathtaking, especially when you consider the perspective of the photographer, and it’s safe to say nobody has ever seen the city of Shanghai captured photographically in this way before.
