It’s almost done. The disc is a 400 lb, 1/4" thick, 4' diameter hunk of machined and inked brass. It came in on Tuesday morning. Final installation is tonight or tomorrow. The sun is glass, and the planets are printed.
Experiencing a giant thing, empty, watching the swallows chase moths in the floodlights.
I think that’s only the second Dune I’ve ever seen. It’d look pretty bitchin with a little lift and bigger footprint.
So, there’s pretty much zero chance that this isn’t a black widow, right? Just found her, freshly dead, in my studio. Only spider that’s ever given me the jibblies.
How bout a new 914?
So last night dsigned001-O.R.C. hunter put this bug in my head and I said I’d use that idea as a warmup sketch this morning. So I did.
Y’know, just your average Thursday morning when you work with the most amazing people on the most crazy things. Like a 27000-year astronomical clock and orrery up through Saturn, including major moons on each planet.
Is the taillights.
I took that drone model I made, reworked some details, added some color, and animated it.
Trying to get new versions of modeling and rendering software to play nice with each other is a pain.
So almost 2 weeks ago, I crashed my drone. Today I finished troubleshooting, recalibrating, and testing my rebuild. Test flight complete!
I gave my soldering kit away years ago. Now I wish I had it.
Took my DJI Spark out for another flight today, and the controller apparently disconnected. It wandered a bit, I tried bringing it back, to no avail. It went full-throttle (even though it was on “safe” mode, and should have stopped moving without direct input) sideways into a rock wall.
A rad off-road Bronco, and a Cobra kit that you weren’t afraid of going all sacrilage with...
Something like a 959. Sketched between meetings, conference calls, and a few other things. Sorry for the two posts, but they’re two very different endeavors.
So. It’s gotten to the point where I have to incorporate. I think I have a good name for the business. This afternoon I fucked around a bit with some graphic stuff. Not there yet, but a good start, I think.
So. Some major life changes in the past two weeks have resulted in: a new computer (love that smell), which is the drawing machine I’ve wanted for like 20 years, and the search for the right name for a new business is on. And a new client and a teaching/advising job just sort of happened.
