I've discovered that I love angle grinders. Took a little bit of time to rough in the carving on that table today.

More fun with small-scale carving on steer horn. I love how walnut ink brings out the details. Added a photo to show what it looked like before staining.

So I found this table on the side of the road a while back and suddenly got this crazy idea. Now that I've got it cleaned up (added some photos of where it started) and the concept sketched, the only question is whether I carve it with knives only or if I go the power carving route. What do you think?

Had a bit of steer horn scrap laying about. Figured I'd try to do something with it. What do you think? Wanna see this as an inlay?

Got a travel brush back when I was at in Amsterdam. Finally got to take it for a spin with some coffee and ink.

Yup! Still making bent wood rings. This one is elm burl and lapis lazuli wrapped around a bent steer horn core.

Oh wow... I just discovered that Hugo works in Termux. Static site website updates on my phone. Sweet!

You know how when you're at a fair or an amusement park and you find yourself losing an hour (or more) just staring over the shoulder of a caricature artist or some other craftperson while they work?

Yeah... I've found that I also do the same thing with my 3D printer.

See all that blue? That means I've finished reviewing the edits in the next edition of Blender For Dummies. Wheeeeeee!

Sidenote: I designed that t-shirt. Just a little bit of Inkscape. :D

Oh crap... I forgot to share this here. From this year's Blender Conference:

Around the beginning of the year, Ton Roosendaal accepted an Ub Iwerks Award on behalf of the Blender community at the Annie Awards. At this year's Blender Conference (), we were all able to get photographed with the award, because according to him it belongs to all of us. This is the goofy shot that got taken of me.

You can see a whole bunch of other photos at conference.blender.org/2019/ph

Quick little bouncing ball example with Grease Pencil in Blender. So much fun to play with!

Took an old Sculptember model and played around with doing retopo in Blender 2.80. It'll do. :)

Opensource.org has started a new initiative to start an open source specialization curriculum at Brandeis University. They're hiring (for money) open source experts to teach.
