like everyone else my age, I’ve succumbed to the wonders and glory of Pokemon Go

I joined Team Instinct and wanted to show team pride!

I’m going to do a Team Mystic for my cousin, and will happily do any Valor ones as well!!


my friend Donda is moving away in a few weeks (sniff) and I wanted to make a going away present. We saw a frame with this theme at Denver Comic Con last weekend, and I wanted to imitate it, since Donda had fallen in love with the original

Thrift Store Frame – sanded and weathered

Rivets – brass Brads with the legs broken off – weathered

Chain – 5′ of plastic chain from the hardware store – weathered + sealed

Blood Tube – 6′ of clear tubing from the hardware store – painted red + sealed

Bolts – random plumbing parts from the hardware store – weathered

Leather – scraps from my own supply

Twine – from one of my room mates – weathered + sealed



a sign for my aunt and uncle’s farm!

they took over this farm when the couple who used to own it passed away (my aunt and uncle had worked for them for a long looong time)

originally called THE HORSE FARM, they wanted to put their own little twist on it, so the TOO (as in also AND the second) was added

boards are solid oak that my dad had laying around – he also cut them all fancy

turns out, making props is really fun!

River Song’s sonic trowel

special thanks to my good buddy Donda for designing and 3D printing the trowel head! all the rest of the parts are auto and plumbing odds ‘n ends from the hardware store, and the handle came from a small mallet. handle stain and assemblage by me.

I will be awkwardly stumbling all over myself to ask Alex Kingston herself if she’ll sign the handle at Comic Con this year, and after it gets signed, I’ll be vanishing the handle so the signature will be permanent.




Rest in Peace, Mr. Alan Rickman
