Seattle ROLL-A-SKETCHES! and also: WONDERCON

Here are a few of the many Roll-a-Sketch drawings I did for folks in Seattle a couple weeks ago!!

Roll-a-Sketch drawings, of course, have their elements generated from lists of attributes by the rolling of dice! Like this CROCODILE + WHALE + POLICE + VICTORIAN:

oi ye git

Or this ELEPHANT + CACTUS + ROBOT + VICTORIAN:

ras-eccc-cactus

Or his buddy/long-lost twin (we decided), ELEPHANT + CACTUS + HELICOPTER + BATMAN:

ras-eccc-batman

Finally, that old chestnut, the BEAR + ANGEL + SPORTS + CLOWN:

ras-eccc-clown

Would you like to get your very own Roll-a-Sketch? I will be at WonderCon tomorrow, in Anaheim!

i wonder

IMPORTANT: I will not be there the whole weekend, and I will not have a table! I’ll be around on Friday the 18th only, to check out the show and visit friends.

BUT: A few times during the day I’ll set up shop for Roll-a-Sketches!

If you will be at WonderCon tomorrow, and you would like me to text you when I’m doing sketches, here is a form:

Phone number to text

 It's OK to text me on Friday

I’ll only text you tomorrow, up to three times maybe, to let you know where I’ll be — then I’ll delete your number when I leave. Is it weird? I dunno!! GO FOR IT

Just look for this!!

fly, you fools

Will I have a banner fluttering from a flagpole like a royal herald?

I DON’T SEE WHY NOT



BOOKWAR continues

i am the night

Just 2 things, Ryan…

1. You don’t have to say “fiction novel.” The fiction part is implied by the word “novel”.

2. Why is this book in the Port Authority bathroom

UPDATE: I have learned that it is in every Port Authority bathroom, so I suppose that answers #2, while also raising new questions

I keep finding terrible book after terrible book that Ryan North wrote! And he, incensed, keeps making up completely untrue Photoshopped lies about me!!

oh no

Video: Building a DIY TelePrompTer for $0.00

I’ve been making a bunch of videos for Machine of Death Kickstarter updates, and I love watching the particular brand of YouTube channel about making low-cost DIY camera equipment, whether it’s a camera stabilizer or a slider or a TelePrompTer (so capitalized because it’s a trademark).

The stabilizer and the slider I can approximate with some scrap wood and a skateboard, but I got to watching a few of the prompter videos and realized that, while I didn’t have all the stuff mentioned in the videos, I did have some other, similar stuff and could probably figure out how build my own. I was fascinated by how simple the key element is — literally just a piece of glass — and thought I’d give it a try.

So here’s my DIY video, “Building a DIY TelePrompTer for $0.00, Using Just The Stuff I Already Have Lying Around.”

I assume you have all the same stuff, so go ahead and follow along.
