Pinned toot

I've had this guy on the back burner for like a month? Two months? It's been too long. I just really wanted to paint a turtle.

I have two versions of this: one with line art and one without. I can't decide which one I like better. The whole painting process ended up being quite an adventure, and I'm considering repainting it.

I know almost zero things about electrical engineering so it's good to find out about all the available options and components that exist for making. So far I have ideas for using conductive thread.

This may come across as a strange question but:

has anyone ever tried, or can try, to complete an electric circuit using a line of metallic ink (such as from a sharpie marker or metallic paint marker equivalent)? Instead of wire? Will it or does it work? I've found no information on how much conductivity the ink has. In theory I want to see if a loop made with metallic ink can connect a battery to a little LED...

I was elected to teach a class on arduinos and conductive thread so now I have to brainstorm a lesson plan involving conductive thread and write a project worksheet and make a video. My ideas are currently a light up sock, a light up hat, or just straight up make a light up fish that screams if you touch it.

Back in my art school days I used to ride the 710 COPSA line from Parque Del Plata to Montevideo almost everyday.
I did a ton of drawing while riding buses since my round trip commute was around 3-4 hours.
This is the Marcopolo Viaggio G4 Mercedes Benz model from the late 80s, one of the older bus models that was running on the line.

I started punch needling today! I had a lot of leftover yarn from previous projects so of course I made another crab.

A little late but happy new year again. ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ฐ

A lil throwback to these super cute lil orb shaped beavers I made and still adore<3

I'm now on homeopathic allergy medicine (because it's non-drowsy) and hopefully my mind will stop ripping through time and space at clock-melting speeds now!

I almost scraped my tablet with a real, regular normal actual pen (a ballpoint)! Whew-that was a close one. My tablet pen is back in my hand now.

Sifting through my archives for all my experimental drawings and trying to remember the techniques used to achieve certain effects. One example is this neon yellow line.
