Well, the Another Disposable Art Show came and went on the weekend and much $ was raised for charity. All of my decks sold, including the 2 I made for the 3D prints. A great night all around with a massive turnout and good times had by all. Look forward to next year!

I have been kicking around this idea in my head for a year or two but just never had the kick in the pants to try it, then my friend Joey asked me to be in a charity skate deck show so that was all I needed. It is a 3D anaglyph printed by using 2 laser etched skateboards... each slightly different to account for the object either popping in the foreground or receding into the background. I am surprised it work, it took alot of trial and error to get them to a point where I could pull off a decent print. I finally ended up using a high density sponge (actually the back of a foam stamp) to blot the ink onto the decks and then I aligned the paper and used a rubber roller to back of the paper to get a good contact.
They turned out pretty good and they went over well at the show... I believe they ended up selling to someone from the Imax 3D studio here in Toronto who was going to put it up the studio... cool!
