LOL....those are the most accurate Ostriches I've seen in a long time.

This is just a great piece you put together, just beautiful.

It sure beats putting it on the fridge by a light year!! Grin

Thanks!  But I fear that I'll be doing the 2.0 version today.  Undecided

Last night at the pub, beer, overzealous people,  gravity and concrete floors all combined to a disastrous event. Well, not entirely disastrous, but the spires broke off and the crown is bent kinda awkward on one side.....so, all things considered, it held up well.

But, what a better way to spend a rainy day....any reason to stay inside and build and craft, eh?

...but I'm preaching to the choir....  Wink
24  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Beer Caps....how Magestic and Royal a Crown they make on: September 11, 2008 05:22:25 PM

As ghetto as all this looks, it's probably one of the most fun things I've made in a while.

My local pub is having a fundraiser for the local University Radio Station (CKDU) and some local charities. Part of the event is to have the DJ's dressed in 'Skag Drag'....picture Drag queens with facial hair and REALLY BAD CLOTHES....it's all for chairty.

The winner gets the title of 'MZ. 88.1 FM' and gets to wear the tackiest, yet most proper of headgear....this crown made of beer caps and love.....and shame...lol.

Here's the Crown...

Here's the Sceptre (modelled by the lovely Sheldon...)

and together....

they're all held togfether with tnesion from bending them into each other and a bit of glue to keep columns and rows together...

26  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Quick and Dirty Light Table with Ironed Plastic Case on: September 08, 2008 03:24:45 PM
Hey, this is my first finished project post...although not my first finished project by far.
Alright, here's the skinny on it all.
I was walking home trying to figure out how to make a light table/tracing box because, well, I'm a cheap-ass Scotian AND I needed it to be portable. Luckily on my way home, someone was throwing away an old printer/scanner combo.
Picked that up and came home. I already had a small little plug in fluorescent lamp that was just mocking me daily.
I separated the scanner from the printer part with little effort, then I ripped the (surprisingly few) guts out of the scanner. Filed down a few of the little plastic nubs on the inside of the case and gnawed away (with pliers) a hole for the lamp's cord. After I finished I realized I needed more light, so I made another whole for lamp #2....yeah, i know, it looks like a rat did it, but I'm attaching a pen holder over this gaping hole.

Next, I fitted the bottom with only the classiest of Tin foil and used a white garbage bag to diffuse the light a bit. NOTE: The plastic bag SUCKS....use parchment paper...much better results.

with plastic bag....

with parchment paper
After finishing it, and being proud of myself, I realized that transporting it in my backpack would end up with scratches all over it, so I grabbed some shopping bag pieces that I had experimented with fusing.

Essentially, I just made an envelope out of the pieces and fused the seams on the side together.

Just a thought on this...this was literally a QUICK AND DIRTY method of making....I had the supplies and the inspiration, but not the time....threw all of this together in about 1.5 hours, just before going to work.
All in all, this was a pretty quick little project and it weighs in total about 2lbs, perfect carrying weight and size.

LOL...i have the same piece, but only in baby blue. I use it as a toolbox right now for the little things (paint scraper, socket set, engraver, etc).

Not a bad idea though....I like it.

30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Have you been accepted to an art school? on: May 16, 2008 11:02:52 PM

I'm a part time student at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (www.nscad.ns.ca). It's an art school that is based on the conceptual approach rather then technical training. A kind of philosophy of if you want to express it, the resources to learn the technical are there for you, opposed to the 'this is how you..." now make _____.

I'm there for Ba Design.....Environmental/Information Design.

I applied 3 times before I got in. The portfolio that got me in was one fueled by rage and expression. I submitted what i thought was poignant and a representation of who I am, and what my artistic voice could express, and that was the winner.

I'll post my portfolio tomorrow for you (shoudl me scanner hold up to the chalenge).
