Kisa Pyropet – The cat that caught on fire

“Meow!”

 

We’re big fans of all things Kickstarter here.

Be it games, music, or industrial design – you can find some pretty innovative and quirky experiences there. So quirky they couldn’t possibly succeed in the normal market.

You never know what to find there. It’s quite exciting.

You also never know when, and if you’ll even receive the project you funded. Because of the nature of Kickstarter, some projects get delayed, run out of money, and fail. So you can imagine our happy delight when the postman delivered the succesfully funded Kisa – Pyropet candle by its designers Thorunn Arnadottir and Dan Koval.

Originally Kisa was the kind of project me and Kaija go coco over; funny, cute and absolutely morbid. I mean, who’d want to burn a cat? I guess I do.

So check out this charming little piece of design geniosity, and if you want to get your own little flaming cat, then head over to Pyropet’s website!

From package design to the shape of the candle and it’s interior skeleton – the product is full of awesome.

Lighting it, is like lighting any other candle. No prior training in handling candles is required.

And so, the proud kitten starts to melt away.

It takes quite a bit of burning until the skeleton starts to fully reveal itself, but the sight is worth it.

Take heed, the candle does spill a lot. A LOT.

I’m posting a drawing update, since this weekend I drew some cute mushroom-men for the next chapter, and thought their cuteness should earn them a spot on the blog.

This weekend's haul.

This has been the state of my desk for a while now. I really need to clean up.

I simply ran out of space on the rest of the table and got squeezed out onto my wacom tablet to draw. This happens often enough, that I'm surprised it's still in as good a condition as it is.

Mushroom-men!

I tried out ink on a new kind of paper.

I tried out ink on a german etching paper.

The paper is so soft, that it ... the ink and leaves it slightly grey and looking like it's been printed or stamped on. I highly recommend trying new and different materials from time to time. You might get some really interesting results.

The paper is so soft, that it soaks up the ink and leaves it slightly grey and looking like it’s been printed or stamped on. I can’t recommend enough trying new and completely different materials from time to time. You might get some really interesting results and spark some new ideas.

 

Smiles,

Kaija
