I was at a conference with a lot of down time, so I made daily caricatures of the organizers on the communal whiteboard.

Some were quicker than others.

Today I had a Stone beer, poured by a robot, and enjoyed it with my favorite robot actor Brent Spiner (Commander Data from The Next Generation).

Today was a good day.

San Diego Comic Con is pretty great, and very tiring.

My take on the King of the Forest, Totoro, just in time for San Diego Comic Con!

Happy 4th of July America!

What better way for a furry to celebrate than with the most patriotic tail ever. So fire up the grill, crack open a beer, and enjoy being back-to-back World War champions.

Tail build guide coming soon.

My job is pretty cool. This is what I do when I am not at my desk or in the machine shop.
Unfortunately, it also takes most of my time. Regular posts will resume soon. (Sorry!)

ALL HAIL THE MIGHTY QUADRACORN!!

Stay tuned for more updates! I have a special surprise for Whiteboard Ponies planned later this week.

Also follow me through my next whiteboard based adventure, Gravity Falls.

I hate to rehash my old projects, but I had to take some better photos than these. This was an old project from high school. I swear, one day I will make a strap for these.

Made form brass, stainless steel, vinyl leather, and notch filter glass.

Creepy Rarity was inspired, in part, by Carl from “Aqua Teen Hunger Force.” To complement the poor posture, body hair, and tank top, I needed a gaudy faux gold chain with some cartoonish, asymmetrical bling.

Making the bling for Rarity was a bit of a problem. There were no off-the-shelf solutions for her specific jewel shapes, so I had to cast them. I made several different positive molds using Super Sculpy, then made a negative mold from silicone putty. I tried several different casting materials: an inexpensive jewelry resin, 5 minute epoxy, and Clear Cast. The Clear Cast worked best.

I found that any moisture in the molds would produce bubbles, so I baked them ahead of time in an industrial oven. The jewelry resin and Clear Cast are self degassing, but I found that it was not sufficient enough for the tight crannies in the molds. Degassing for 10 minutes in the vacuum chamber worked well. The jewels were finished with a gloss clear-coat spray and metallic backing.

The setting was made from Super Sculpy, gold paint, Rhine stones, and brass chain.
