I'm working on a stylized digital image of my dogs rasslin' as a Godzilla style movie poster. I plan on making a print and a t-shirt for my husband for Christmas.

If anyone has recommendations for reasonably priced printers for either, I would be happy to have them.

Cool! Off the top of my head, Vistaprint.com is a very budget-friendly and user-friendly friendly site for printing needs- from posters to clothing.

I'm writing a TTRPG with my son.  got some pretty good ideas.

I shot about 5 rolls with my recently acquired Bronica SQ-A yesterday, in and around the tattoo studio where my wife was getting work done. The studio is a converted mill (built in the early 1900's) that is subdivided into spaces that artists rent as workshops or studios. I think I shot three rolls of Portra 160, one roll of Ilford FP4 Plus 125, and one of Ektar 100.
Overall, I've shot just over dozen rolls with the camera since I got it a couple of weeks ago, but haven't developed any of it yet. I need to get on that.

Got about 1300 images yesterday, so today is all about post-processing. I wanted to do a major Software Hootenanny project but don't have the tools to do it right, but I have a few edited images as well as some good candidates from the latest batch to submit.

I'm working on a set for "The Wizard of Oz" for our school theater.  The plan (so far) is for 10 large set pieces and several dozen small wagons.   Cast of 65 with 28 assorted technical helpers.

I had a small piece of curly walnut.  It wasn't quite enough for a pen but it fit this pipe kit very nicely.

I've not been in the shop in weeks because I was building a dry-stacked, PA fieldstone wall for the dry creek bed in our backyard and getting the landscaping done around it. An end-of-season sale at my local mom and pop garden center got me 6 goldenrods at $4 a piece!
FOR THE POLLINATORS!

I have most of my negatives in pages, so I have 2 more rolls to scan, cut, and paginate.

Next is 2 color rolls for the local guy, 3 slide rolls to mail out, and figuring out which film for the next cosplay shoot.

My band put a new song out as a single. This one came together very quickly, but it took a bit longer to find a good space to mic amplifiers. My cheap, direct in setup can not handle high gain tracks and makes guitars sound like angry bees in the worst way.

It's on the heavier edge of indie / alternative rock. Starts quiet, gets loud. No vocals on this one, though we're working on that for future tracks.

We're slowly upgrading demo tracks and finishing songs between live gigs. Hopefully, we will get a full length released before spring.

I love a rocking instrumental. Nice work!

I have a ton (ok, hundreds of pounds) of instrument-grade hardwoods. I am happy to share. Perhaps we can set something up where I send you fancy blanks (assuming you don't have the gear to make blanks from lumber stock). It's win-win, I clear shop space, you get free wood. Yeah?

Fixed up some experimental guitars I built a while back but wasn't happy with for various reasons. I've had them tucked away in the closet until I got motivated to deal with them. Now they have new bridges and I've repaired some little cosmetic dings that were bugging me. Now I'll feel better about trying to sell them.

Fretless semi-hollow body electric bass and 8 string classical style acoustic:

You too - want wood?
Tension rods?
Knobs?
Fret wire?
Half-made bass guitar?


/bought a shop from a retiring luthier - everything but the walls. And I am not a luthier...

I might be interested in some stuff. I just temporarily put my website in my profile and you can use the contact form on there to get in touch. Thanks for the offer!

Can't do smooth gifs on my phone. It is all copper and weighs about 40 lbs. It is my life story. I was born in chaos. Later achieved some kinda balance and will die. I thought I got heavy metal poisoning while wearing a P-100 mask and cutting on it but that turned out to be a one day virus my wife gave me when she returned from a sister trip. This sculpture is right on time for Halloween which I make many for, that still hang littering my yard.

I've decided I'm going to call this one done. It's watercolor. (You can see its evolution in previous f'artiste threads.)  The rock tutorials from last week helped with the background some, thank you for those!
Overall I got more frustrated the closer I got to finishing. Something about the colors isn't quite right. The colors in the original photo were a lot brighter. It also didn't help that I was mixing paints in a darkened room with the light of a projector.

Just did the final proofreading for an RPG adventure I wrote for A Big Company. And a short horror story I wrote had been selected for publication in a small indy magazine. So lots of successful wordsmithery recently.

It's wonderful to see such creativity across so many disciplines. Thank you, all, for sharing this week!
