In honor of Widow Week, and to celebrate the first issue of a brand-new Black Widow ongoing, I collaged a wallet to give away!
Sides are black and white newsprint pictures and quotes (from “Essential Daredevil 4”); front and back are glossy color pictures from various comics (including panels from Black Widow: Name of the Rose, Black Widow: Homecoming, Captain America and the Black Widow, Marvel Fanfare, White Tiger, Secret Avengers, Daredevil, Avengers Assemble, Black Widow and the Marvel Girls, and Black Widow: Fear Itself). Has been covered with a few layers of mod podge; will be covered with several more before I send it out.
- I don’t really care if you follow me, but I do post a lot about Black Widow at allofthefeelings and all of my collages at i glue stuff, if you’re interested.
- Reblog or like to enter, one entry per. I don’t really care if you reblog more than once, but don’t be a jerk. (If you reblog to signal-boost instead of wanting it, though, maybe mention that in the post so you don’t get a wallet you don’t want?)
- I’ll ship anywhere
- Winner will be chosen randomly from notes on January 22, which happens to be the day the SECOND issue of Black Widow comes out. (See what I did there?)
- If you win I’ll ask-box you for your address; if you don’t respond within two days I’ll go to the next person.
- If by some miracle this gets over 250 notes, I’ll make a second wallet, with the front and back entirely out of pictures from Black Widow (2014) #1, also to give away. First winner will get to choose if they want this one or that one; second winner will get the one the first winner doesn’t choose. If this happens, I will notify the second winner after the first winner has claimed theirs.
- If you don’t feel the odds are in your favor, I’ve got an etsy store and should be adding more Black Widow wallets to it, and/or you could commission one, so keep an eye on that.
Questions? Comments? Let me know.

I learnt a new word and I love the sound of it: kintsukuroi. It is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with seams of gold. Kintsugi repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the container even more beautiful than it was prior to being broken. Not a very common idea in western culture!
Instead of diminishing the bowl’s appeal and appreciation, the “break” offers the container a new sense of its vitality and resilience. The bowl has become more beautiful for having been broken. One can say that the true life of the bowl began the moment it was dropped!
Imagine you are that clay pot: celebrate your flaws and imperfections. Remember that you being you is what makes you uniquely beautiful.
And remember: “The world breaks everyone, then some become strong at the broken places.” Ernest Hemingway
An interesting essay on the art of kintsukuroi can be found in Flickwerk, The Aesthetics of Mended Japanese Ceramics.

I’m pretty sure that I’ve reblogged this before, but its actually one of my favorite posts on tumblr. The idea that something can be more beautiful after being broken is so moving to me. I kind of want one of these someday, or to make my own. It’s an amazing concept, and I love the fact that it’s an artform.
