"It's a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port. The shaft leads directly to the reactor system. A precise hit will start a chain reaction which should destroy the station."

SKULLUXE + GELASKINS


I was approached by the fine folks at Gelaskins awhile back to join their artist roster... I did and today I received some samples from Brian who heads the whole shebang up... I must say I'm really impressed with the print quality... Really top notch... beautiful rich colours.


If you are looking for phone cases, or iPad, kindle, mac or phone skins hit them up... This is quality stuff and they have a ton of great artists as well... Look up SKULLUXE or Dan Springer to see my jazz


Plus they are based in Toronto!!!

CARDBOARD FUN!

This weekend I took part in my neighbourhood's MakeIt! Fair... there were lots of neat activities for the kids... lego, robots, crafts... I was there with my bicycle bells and to pass the time I brought some boxes, a glue gun and some scissors and proceeded to pass the time by making a deer head hat... turned out pretty cool...  I really like working with cardboard in this way... no plans, just cut, glue and go... really intuitive and really gets the head working out spatial relationships... modeled by the lovely Rosie!
