Due to a past… shall we say, “extreme like” of Penguin Caffeinated Mints, I have more or less a bazillion empty metal tins, which I figured would make good project boxes for little ideas.
On the way to work I had an idea:
Take a tin, glue a strong magnet to the inside of the cover. Close the tin. Grab a handful of small steel hex nuts, and voilà – a magnetic stacking executive desk toy (fun for kids, too!
The tin could also be a storage box for the hex nuts if there weren’t too many.
File under “roadsigns to watch out for”:
This is the other design I mentioned, the circle quartered by a cross:
Again, not planning on getting any tattoos, just, y’know, if I did, these are some ideas.
Looking at it, this came out pretty clean considering I was drawing a freehand circle with my left hand.
Not that I’m planning on it or anything, just entertaining the thought, but I think if I did ever get a tattoo, it might be something like this:
It represents two things to me: Pascal’s Triangle aka the Sierpiński Gasket, and the Triforce from the Zelda games. Both of which I’ve always loved.
Another design I’ve always liked is the circle quartered by a cross, an ancient symbol representing, among other things, Earth.
I’ve been meaning to do some tshirt and bumper sticker designs for a while.
I had some ideas sketched out a while back, and a couple weeks ago, sketched out some more with Sarah and Colleen.
This morning I finally got around to doing it, got a CafePress store set up, came up with the name and logo really quickly (the name is decent, the logo needs work) and did the first bumper sticker and tshirt.
I figure if I can do one or two designs a day, I can get most of the sketches turned into products pretty quickly.
Here’s the initial store, with only 2 items in it:
More to come.
Ok, so I didn’t throw them myself, but we just got the dishes back that we painted on Sunday.
They came out pretty good!
Sarah made a water dish for Rita, and I painted two little dessert dishes.
