Safety Coffins

August 4th, 2014


Loving the band name Fan Death and brainstorming with Mathew Lippincott and Stevie Lewis of Public Lab, I now want to start a band called The Safety Coffins. Mathew suggested the above image as an album cover, via Retronaut.

I first read about safety coffins in Michael Crichton’s The Great Train Robbery, but Wikipedia has a nice article with more pictures: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safety_coffin. TL;DR if you’re buried alive, there’s a bell you can ring to be let out. And food and stuff.

We also thought OSHA should publish guidelines for workplace safety for the dead. But do ghosts need handrails and HEPA filters?

Red line to Logan


Spectrometer workshop, resulting in Galileo-shuttle-style papercraft design.


Later that night, Joris showed Ilan his giant screw. 3D printed with a stock Ultimaker by connecting a really long z-belt to the ceiling! Joris is an incredibly talented modder of 3d printers.


Later at the Valdaura Green Fab Lab.


Ecovative-style mushroom furniture designs.


Amazing aerial photography folks who made an RC plane out of foam core.


Glowing objects in the surf.


Infragram Kite mapping, days later in Bilbao with Pablo Rey of Basurama.org and Juan Pablo Torrente of Faba.in – the new stadium.


Monkfish by Pablo.


At the chain factory, fun with fake tilt-shift.

One reason I found these so alarming:


Was this drawing I did a few years ago:


Ships to ship ships

June 25th, 2014

I’ve doodled a lot of aircraft carrier carriers but I don’t believe this is real.

How many ships could a ship shipping ship ship if a ship shipping ship could ship ships?


But they can’t. I don’t believe it. Help.

It’s a start… needs finer lines and I also just need to get more practice with this style, esp. the white on black stuff.
