This page contains links to articles on some of my more recent art projects. I may describe some art techniques and provide "making of" information, more more often than not I shall just make stuff up and spin the bullshit (a bit like writing Artist Statements). Hopefully this extreme level of complete bollocks will not cast doubt in your minds about the veracity of the other stuff on my website.
I took part in a local competition to design a planet as part of Astronomy Month. Actually I'm sure the competition was aimed at 6 year olds, but never mind. What i decided to do was create a "Little Planet" using local iconic scenes. It was a heap of fun gathering material for it. I used the GIMP to manipulate the component images and produce the final "Little Planet" image. This article describes teh techniques I used to create the image.
I take great pride in presenting to you the Most Bad-Arse (That's "Badass" for you North Americans) Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer in the World. The article describes the semi-safe use of the instrument to avoid unwanted time distortions, and fluctuations in posigravitrino flux (which would be bad).
So you have made a fantastic 3D printed miniature and the single colour it is printed in is a bit boring. This article briefly describes a selection of cheap paints that will produce a robust finish with good strong colours.
