New Gallery Section

I added a new Linkgroup on the right side of this page called “Personal Work”. You can visit my Carbonmade Portofolio there. This is how I spent most of my time this past month. I will continue to draw in that style, but update the Gallery only when I have 2 or 3 works to add. You can also follow me on my facebook page for more frequent updates. I’ll be updating this page more in the next week, as I probably will have a little more time at hand. See you wherever your curiosity brings you!

Preparing for this years “Troc’N’Brol”

I am this year again invited to the awesomely strange and fun exhibition/auction called “Troc’N’Brol”. I don’t know if this kind of thing is internationally known, so I’ll try to explain: It’s an exhibition where the guests can bid on a work they like with whatever comes to their heads by writing this on a Post-It and putting that one near the work they like. This can be done from 18:00 to 22:00, hereafter the artists choose one or none of the proposals and the work then changes proprietary. The new proprietary then has one year to fulfill his bid. So if you’re in Luxembourg on the 18th of December, check out this event at the “Carré-Rotondes” in Hollerich/Luxembourg.

Geekery: Atari games branded pencils

The above picture was posted on the Erasable Podcast Community Page on Facebook and it shows what might be my doom… I have, well had, no interest in pencils that exist only to be a publicity, sporting some fancy colors and slogans and totally loosing at being a proper pencil, but these got me thinking. I’m a 77’s guy, so I have that urge of reliving part of a time I only lived through half consciously being a kid. These pencils do exactly that and they do that in a wonderful way as the Atari VCS 2600 was my first (well mine and my sisters…) gaming console.

Kickstarter: Twist Bullet Pencil

Here’s another fun pencil related Kickstarter. The guys at Metal Shop and Huckelberry Woodchuck, the later famous for his vintage bullet pencils on Etsy, have started a tasty Kickstarter: A bullet pencil that is closed and opened with a twist, even the pencil stubs are fastened by twisting them into place. I’m already happy with the stainless steel and black color, but the stretch goals promise some more colors like the shiny blue (my favorite color) you see in the picture. Go ahead and take a look you might like what you see: http://kck.st/1vveAOa

Yep, still alive! I’ve been busy with my two little ones and was a bit active on the Erasable Community page on Facebook. But beside that school has started again, so I may find more time for reviews again. One little thing I discovered on Kickstarter are these übercool Sticky Page Markers that can be arranged to a landscape! Love thee concept. Check it out here: http://kck.st/1pge8hR
