more mad science
After a bit of mad science in the name of science fiction, I was eager to tackle another challenge using some of this new rapid prototyping technology. As luck would have it, my buddy Kevin stepped up to the plate with an idea too insane to ignore.
He's referred to the process of creating these extremely complex cuff links in his blog as "Bling Impossible", and after the three long months it took to create the little buggers I'm certain it's an accurate title.
In any event, the somewhat less interestingly named cage cufflinks are now in my portfolio.

I love it when total strangers not only take photos of you at an event, but are kind enough to email them over cropped, cleaned up and with full permission to post and share.

There are no ninja hiding behind this wall.
The now famous back of my head.
My expansive hand gestures almost killed a woman during this event.
They like it! They really like it!
This is as close as I get to a facial expression after a month without sleep.

slammed into being
There is nothing quite like a deadline to light a fire under your derrière.
While I had been quietly exploring digital illustration for years, nothing was demanding any sort of result. That freedom definitely gave me an opportunity to play and learn, but I think it kept me from officially "completing" the process and releasing new art into the world.
Perhaps I was just protecting my ego from yet another slam.
Ironically, it was a "slam" that ultimately resolved the matter. Specifically, I was invited to participate in the D Art Slam, but under the proviso that I only exhibit my 2D work. So, in a little under a month of sleepless nights, I upgraded my "artistic resume" from jeweler who dabbles to multimedia artist.
Have a look at the results while I recover from the culture shock.
