Pocket C.H.I.P. Ordering Experience 

The squeegee we're using to make silkscreened t-shirts doesn't prop up well, which makes things messy.

A binder clip fixes the problem pretty fast.

It's the little things.

Yesterday my Media Arts majors did a test printing of a t-shirt design. I was a little worried that cardstock would be too thick to use as a stencil, but fortunately fabric is flexible enough for this to not be an issue.

When we're done, each student will have their own unique design on the front and a common design on the back.

TAG students were shown the "Caine's Arcade" video today.

They are very excited to plan their cardboard games.

How convenient that we've spent the last few months with lessons on circuitry and designing 3d structures out of 2d materials.

Now we get to do game design.

Between 2009 and 2019 ... I got a lot older, scruffier, and more worn out.

The best resolutions are the ones you don't feel compelled to put off until an arbitrary date on a calendar.

I'm gonna make stuff.

Stylized image of a human skull, papercraft 

Somewhat holiday related, school door decoration contest, art education humor 

It's been a while since I made something for someone else.

Even longer since I did something like this.

Feels good.

My parents dropped off my grandfather's desk today. The interior shelf had 4 decades (at LEAST) of dust inside of it.

The top needs some TLC, but it's a nice desk.

It will not be used to stack monitors. I intend to USE this desk for something more than just another storage rack.

"Finger Lights" are probably the most useless things I've ever wasted a dollar on...

Until I take them apart and have 3 LEDs & 9 batteries that I can use in a lesson on circuits.


Widower, birthday 

club starts Wednesday. Students each get a copy of the basic rules and a set of dice to start. :d2020:

I can't wait.

Huh. It also can't seem to make up its mind about what it should look like. Different art for Emoji selection, toot draft, and published toot.

back to school night
