Abandoned 3D Graffito

Monday, 12 December 2011

[Found here.]

Mom would have loved this had I painted it in her basement, but only after she kicked my ass upstairs one step at a time.

Thanks for kicking my ass, Mom. We’re gonna miss you.

Saturday Matinee – Doodling With Some Zees

Saturday, 11 December 2010

Doodling in Math Class is an awesome series with great commentary. (There are more here, here and here.) I did a lot of n-pointed star studies and other similar graphics, but teh Utoobage hadn’t been invented yet to record the brilliance.

One of the great modern animators, Bruno Bozzetto has done it again.

What the heck, here’s another Bozzetto classic.  Now how do I transition from Bozzetto to a music video? …got it.

Bozzetto to Bozzio. Double zees. Which takes us to you-know-who:

1980′s vintage ZZ Top. Now we’re gonna take away one more Z…

Zappa’s “Bamboozled By Love/Owner of a Lonely Heart.”

And with that, have a great weekend folks and be back here tomorrow for more fun.

Practical Geometry

Wednesday, 21 July 2010

Steamboat McGoo found this excellent study illustrating the importance of understanding basic geometry. Although the explanation is in Japanese, it’s of critical importance that angle TQS is equal to angle AQE in order to cause the schoolboy’s jaw to drop.

There’s a pun in there somewhere about an extra riser, but I’m not gonna go there.

[Whoa. Just found the source of that excellence. There are a series of  Manga textbooks, and they're available in other languages including Portuguese. Tip o' the tarboosh to mars for the update.]
