Ghost Bird

This Texas white-winged dove left a ghostly image of its last moment.  Sadly, the impact was too great.  This ominous beauty mark of its life is all that is left.  Inspiring and gloomy at the same time.

Messing With Banksy - May 5, 2010

So, as pretty much everyone in the universe knows by now, Banksy dropped some graffiti bombs in SF a couple of weeks ago. Woo hoo! Here's what I thought of them.

DIY SF - March 24, 2010

As a big fan of DIY projects, I really admire a local hands on shop that offers people a range of classes to teach people how to do stuff. It’s called Workshop SF, and will show you how to do anything from making Feather headpieces and headbands to Screenprinting to Glass jar terrariums. It's really nice that you don't have to rely on expensive colleges to reengage your creative side.

From what I understand it was partially founded (if not completely founded) by Kelly Malone, of Indie Mart fame.

I’d like to take a class there soon, perhaps Sewing 101.

I'm a MAKER - March 16, 2010

See me at Maker Faire!

I got accepted to be a Maker at San Francisco’s Maker Faire, which takes place May 22nd and 23rd!!!

I’m extremely excited, because it’s basically the equivalent of a science fair for adults, so I get to act out all my geekiness with other geeks in one place. Granted, some of those geeks might be using flame throwers and tesla coils, I’ll be almost as cool.

I’ll be teaching people how to construct and use a rotational casting machine. This machine is very useful, as it allows people to cast hollow objects – which means you can make more things with less material. Also, they are light weight and hollow, so you can turn them into lights and other cool stuff.

I created an Instructable for how to make one almost two years ago, and I received an enormous amount of emails about it, so not I’m taking it up a notch and doing real-time demonstrations. I’m thinking about making hollow chocolate things…maybe unicorns, we’ll see!

So, come see me at the Maker Faire!!!
