this is old, nearly two years old at this point, but honestly, I still like it. I’m experimenting in new ways of digital painting again, and I was reminded of this attempt, way back when.

Bless you skeletor, and bless this blog. I needed that.

Open Source Clothing.

Now I feel it imperative to reblog this, because the project seems to have hit a snag: The video they put up has been taken down because of claims of 3rd-party content, whatever whatever corporate lawyer stuff internet throttling stuff. That makes me think that Bennetton or one of the others whose stores were glimpsed in the background got their hooks in Vimeo.So I thought I’d tell you a yarn about how this thing works: You download the open-source plans for the machine. You build it. You download their open-souce clothing-maker program.You enter the desired measurements into the fields (the ones I remember from the video were arm and neck and chest measurements, so I’m sure they have waist and/or hips too)You print out your sweater, or hat, or scarf, or cardigan, or whatever it was that you selected. It takes an hour to print out the sweater, working off of the two yarn spools that you can see in the bottom right corner of this .gifThat’s it. Custom-fit, custom-color clothing in an hour, for the price of yarn. Can you see why one of the clothing companies targetted in the video might have felt threatened enough to force the video to come down?

The Hourglass Nebula, otherwise known as MyCn 18, is a young planetary nebula that is just 8,000 light-years from Earth. This image from Hubble was the first to reveal MyCn 18’s true shape to be an hourglass with an intricate pattern of “etchings” in its walls. It is thought that the hourglass shape of MyCn 18 may be the result of “the expansion of a fast stellar wind within a slowly expanding cloud, which is denser near its equator than near its poles.”The Hourglass Nebula was featured on the cover of the April 1997 issue of National Geographic. Its unique shape led the editors to say, “Astronomers looked 8,000 light-years into the cosmos with the Hubble Space Telescope, and it seemed that the eye of God was staring back.” The appearance of an eye at its center isn’t fully understood.Read more and download the image for yourself here:http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/1996/07/http://www.spacetelescope.org/images/opo9607a/


Hello Universe. I see you have your own version of Sauron.

Animals with people feet continues. Elephant! I imagine they would need stumpy, strong hands, that would get pretty broken and gnarly looking after a while.

Because I spend many, MANY of my work hours chained to my desk I often have something running in the background to listen to while I work. Under the Influence is one of my favorites; its probably one of the few things I keep current with - I rarely miss an episode!

Under the Influence is a radio…

Something new for Anime North. I’m loosening up on my own rules and allowing myself to make items for fandoms that wouldn’t have them otherwise. I have yet to see adorable tiny kaiju. That glow in the dark.

Might still do some painting on this little fellow, but for now he’s looking cute.

Gipsy is currently in the works, and so far, standing upright on her own!

A slow day at the BPRD! I wrote on my hand that I wouldn’t do any fanart until school was over. Haha, funny! 

I like wide eyed Abe.

Your colour work on that first panel is so pretty.

And of course Abe didn’t do it, he’s an honest kinda guy.

This would have been so good to remember on so many tests. And hilarious.

The new Z-series suit is designed for walking on Mars, not simply floating around in space as astronauts have in the past. The space agency now wants your help to pick the final look.
