- been a long stretch since I was able to sit down and do any carving, finally got this one done. I'm not sure why but this one has a very South Asian feel to me. Maybe the lil squiggly detail on the left(reminds me of Thailand) and the reverse reverse barb sort of reminds me of something you would see in Indian carving.
Carved from cow bone and lashed with wax coated linen cord. Will post the link to the etsy sale as soon as I get it online. 45 + 5 bucks shipping.
"Very good. You are now in posession of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device. With it, you can create your own portals. These intra-dimensional gates have proven to be completely safe. The device however, has not. Do not touch the operational end of the device. Do not look directly at the operational end of he device. Do not submerge the device in liquid, even partially. Most importantly, under no circumstances should you... *static*".
This is MY version of the ASHPD, specifically from Portal 2 (which is why it looks dirty & used). Made out of PVC pipe, wood, Wireform and Durham Rockhard Putty. It does light up! There's a switch on the handle that changes the colors. It's not 100% accurate but I am very pleased with it. I only had the weekends of two months to work on it.

My LCD broke a week ago, so since I couldn't paint in Photoshop I leapt at the chance to do something more hands-on: merge an old clock with an USB memory stick. I got inspired from looking at the wonders at Jake von Slatt's Steampunk Workshop [link] and wanted to do something similar. I'm wearing this as a necklace at work; never have to look for my USB again.
This is a wood burning of a raven. The random lines are from Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven". Although he cheated on his wife, Virginia Clemm, which she at once claimed to have caused her failing immune system to catch tuberculosis and die at the age of 24, his works are legendary and are some of my favorite.
The man may have been a bit of a whack and an opium smoking, alcoholic, cheating bastard... but he sure knew poetry.
