I love creating things!
I work with art, music, code, and whatever else I can get my hands on.
Currently i work in the art department of a tshirt company and work primarily with vector images.
Interests
Lately I have been playing my keyboard in the dark before bed.  The idea is to remove all distraction so I learn faster.  I have one of those old Concertmate 970 Keyboards.

As you can see… the keyboard has a huge number of digital instruments and beats.  I cannot change instruments in the dark BECAUSE I cannot read the menu at all.  So I got to wondering… if I could paint it with glow in the dark paint.

I had a theory that I decided to test.

I knew that glow in the dark paint was more brilliant on a WHITE surface than a BLACK surface.  What I didn’t know was how much more brilliant.  If the contrast was high enough I could just paint the entire surface instead of trying to paint just the letters (which I wouldnt even attempt).

It turns out… you can!  You can slather any black-and-white surface with glow in the dark paint and the text becomes quite legible in the dark.  Unfortunately though… doing this requires a pretty thick application of glow in the dark paint.  It is very visible in the light.

So theres a tradeoff.  You end up with a messy-looking keyboard in natural light that you can read at night.  You give up a little of the day for the night.

I thought it was interesting and hope someone else finds it interesting too.

Seal of Chaoddity
I am going to use this on my letters. Wax seals are really fun.
Still have to bake it and cast it in metal. Already bought the wax.

When i was a kid I liked to decorate my school supplies.  Just by experimenting I discovered that if you use a red permanent marker on a black plastic surface… you get some really cool metallic gold look.


I have no idea why.

The only word of caution I would give is that the ink has a nasty habit of rubbing off so i would use some form of resin or sealer to prevent that.

Lovecraft Engraving
Today I modified my bag further.
I disliked the job I did on the engraving that originally so I redid it.
This time its a lovecraft quote.
