How to make a contour maker:
Ingredients: a piece of corrugated plastic sheet (coroplast), medical applicator sticks or bamboo skewers (make sure they are the skinny kind 2.3mm thick), twill tape.
1. Cut coroplast to the shape you want and cut a window along it, the thickness of the twill tape. Make little slits at either side of the window.
2. Make a loopdy loop with the twill tape and stitch it in place.
3 Start threading the sticks 2 per coroplast hole and weave the twill tape through them. Keep the tape taught.
4. Keep doing that forever
5 finish the twill tape with another loopdy loop and if you want put a stick in it to easily adjust tension on the tape.
6. Get the contour of things.
7. Take your contour thing home and contour everything in your life instead of using it for conservation.

the notebook problem: you see a notebook. you want to buy the notebook. but you know you have like TEN OTHER NOTEBOOKS. most which are STILL EMPTY. you don’t need to notebook. you’re probably not gonna use the notebook anyway. what’s the point? DONT BUY THE NOTEBOOK. you buy the notebook.
making a google glass app! goal is to smartly record your sketching process in a non-obtrusive way by taking interval pictures and compiling into a GIF for easy playback. just a small test for now… been sketching so many hagia sophia’s whilst in istanbul heh
This is a cake I was commissioned to do by one of my Uni friends. We did both our Zoology degrees together: I was on the terrestrial side of it, where she was marine biology focused. So I shouldn’t have been surprised when she asked me for a marine-themed cake. (via Blue-ringed Octopus Cake by cakecrumbs on deviantART)
