New arrival: Lego Pencil Holder

IMG_0017IMG_0019

It is a geek’s dream! Behold my wife’s present for this year’s winter celebrations! The awesome LEGO pencil holder in all its glory standing now on my desk and holding my weapons of choice I use most at the moment. The LEGO pencils are a nice addition, but I am no fan of branded, advertising or novelty pencils. Either way the little guy will be in my company for a long time!

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 “CarrĂ©-Rotondes” in Hollerich/Luxembourg.

Geekery: Atari games branded pencils

IMG_0186.JPG

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.
