The office Flavia machine. I will miss you most, with your 15 kinds of coffee that all taste about the same. Your decent quality tea. But what I will really miss is wondering if there is actually a difference between regular and strong.
They take the same amount of time and use the same water level. What is the difference? Are you mocking us Flavia developers?
Just like mom used to make.
I’ve been trying to get some lettering done recently. I found a bunch of inspiration sites on the web and I’ve been drawing nothing but letters in my sketchbook recently. So I did these tests for a band called “The Primate Fiasco” that I saw last year at Floydfest.
Another example after the break.

I was listening to The Nerdist podcast the other day and I heard them talking about Matt Mira’s love of anything Frasier. Â They mentioned a Muppet Babies/ Frasier crossover and I was instantly thinking of doing something. This was one of those projects that I probably don’t really have time for, but I couldn’t get it out of my head. So I just decided to do it and get it out there, it’s not perfect, but I love it!
Time to put together the ideas in my head, with the materials in my basement. Etsy store, here I come.
I followed some advice from a friends wife who works with prosthetic make-up appliances. Who suggested I make a rig to really hold the mold closed. It’s really cut down on the running looking like an idiot while white plastic gets stuck in all my finger hairs. The models do come out cleaner, but they are a little bent from the wood putting pressure on different parts of the mold. But I think I can fix that with some sanding and a little Epoxy clay.
Also, utility knives are sharp.
