I want to start adding electronic components to some upcoming projects, so I took a workshop on programming ATtiny85 chips with Arduino. Man, it was super cool. Here I am marveling over the fact that I can turn LEDs off and on using a photocell and a basic program in Arduino. As someone who does not typically write code or program anything other than an alarm clock, I was squealingly excited.
Creepy Type 2
This ‘oral alphabet’ must surely be a counterpart to the fleshy type I posted about a few months ago.
The toothy type has been created by Japanese designer Takayuki Ogawa who was inspired by the the mouth’s ability to express such a wide range of emotions by itself. This is clearly demonstrated in the many emoticons that use the mouth to describe the key emotion— :) :D :p. :/ —etc.
Brilliantly executed, they have been made from stone powder clay, acrylic paint, varnish, wood and iron, though, you might think twice before using them on that wedding invite…
My 2 favorite things: creepy and type
I realize I’ve been a little quiet lately, but a lot has been going on behind the scenes here at werkspace. I’ll get to all of that eventually, but I wanted to give everyone a sneak peek at our upcoming show Superheroines: The New Future of Comics. It features the work of Chicago comic artists and opens September 27. Here are just a few images from some of the featured artists:
