      Rest it in the middle.
      I plan on scooping some better paint. These were test runs and im fairly happy with the turnout minus the paint. Thanks for the tips

      Here's some of my latest design work.

      From my own wedding:

      Letterpressed on black paper stock.



      UV printed:



      Our party favours - sacks of herbs to put in olive oil.



      Some other random work.

      Lots of nice work seen here.

      I've not designed or illustrated in years, but still often find myself taking notes using visual imagery, charts, and diagrams. Whenever I am captive such as long conference calls, I'll often doodle just like in the old days. Here's some of the illustrations that have made my notes from the past couple of days.

      It's a long story. Basically the budget for the full movie was cut. So I was left to piece together something with the test footage I shot at the lookbook shoot, mixed with test footage I shot at the location where the ACTUAL video shoot was supposed to take place.

      Maybe it's not art because I copied it, but I had a lot of fun doing it, and my wife loved it.

      When the Simpsons movie came out she had herself "Simpsonized".

      I am confident you are wrong, but instead of illustrating why, I will just make disparaging remarks about your reading comprehension.

      Not yet completed, a few more days and it should be good to go but I figured I'd post it up.

      Fantastic work in this thread.

      Few recent


      work in progress







      I've got a bunch of high end vintage audio gear I'm clearing out, restored Marantz 4270 - better than new condition; Pioneer SX-5590, 8/10; Concept 16.5, 8/10 cosmetically - 10/10 function. Various high end vintage speakers: Rectilinear Research, AR, Kenwood, Infinity, McIntosh, Leslie 251. PM me for details, clearing out to finance home theater upgrade.

      Not my latest, but a pub table I built a while back. Just some wood and hardware from Home Depot and some steel tubing I already had around. Want/need to make more of these, though, as I was thinking they might be fun to sell. Other designs/paintings, though, obviously. And I'd probably change the base or sell it without a base.











      Watercolor you can kinda see in the background. Just something I painted pretty quick to try out some watercolor stuff as I don't have much experience with it.

      I really love your octopus paintings - Inspired me actually, I've been wanting to do a Friedrich Nietzsche inspired piece for a while. There are some amazing artists on this site




      Sidenote - anybody on here also on the Wetcanvas forums?

      Industrial Design is fun. Here are a few things from a while ago.

      Walking power generator – harvests power from walking and stores it in a battery pack, which can also charge standard sized rechargeable batteries.



      Oddly I saw something similar in Popular Science years after I made this.

      Have to agree.

      With the eagle looking over its left shoulder it's a direct symbolization of the Nazi Party. When the eagle is looking over its right it's a symbol of Germany during WWII.
