This is my first pass on some fully-articulated hands for a new armature.  If I'm being entirely honest, I'll probably end up using wire, but this is just something that I've been wanting to do for a while, so here we are.

Aside from my (fairly) trusty drill press, I ha...

 I made an Iron Maiden for my new short film.  I'm actually done with the whole thing.  I sent it to my friend who does sound design.  It might be a while before I get it back, but I'll try to post some pics of odds and ends in the meantime.  Here's this Iron Maiden:...

Hiya, pals!  I'm back to share some more fabrication-y things from my long-in-gestation short film!  When last we talked I showed a glimpse of that armature.  Since then, I've been working on many things, but the most complete (and most exciting!) are some brass applia...

In my junior year at SCAD, I worked on a collaborative fabrication project called Space Guy.  Due to sudden personnel changes over the course of the quarter, it was a very troubled production, but I'm still very proud of the outcome.  Our goal was to fabricate and ani...

In an effort to provide further context to my work, I intend to convert what were essentially slideshows into blog posts that detail each of my projects.  You'll find that the dates on the first few posts will not be an accurate representation of reality, as I'm essent...
