New shirt: “Take It Apart”

Here is a new shirt based on my Rules poster!

Here it is! The unisex shirt is a white ringer; the ladies’ cut is solid navy. I’ve also taken care to print the ladies’ shirts on a 50/50 cotton/polyester blend — it’s the same fabric as my “Revolution” shirt and will probably be the softest shirt you own.


Why, this one! In this picture Tiffany is putting an “L” to her forehead to indicate “Listen, did you know that you save $5 automatically when you buy any three shirts from TopatoCo? Shirts such as…”

“…Steam-Powered Heart, or even…”

“…Engineering: Like Math But Louder.”

It’s a very complicated gesture, you see.

SPEAKING OF PICTURES — Classy Photo Contest winners will be announced next week! Thanks so much for your entries, they are delightful.

Buy the new “Take it Apart” shirt at TopatoCo!

Tinkerer’s Handbooks now available

Perhaps you have enjoyed the “Nominally-Essential Tinkerer’s Handbook,” my eight-page series celebrating the inability to leave well enough alone.

Now, I’m pleased to announce that you if you get one of my Builder’s, Crafter’s, Maker’s Rules posters, or my Engineering: It’s Like Math (But Louder) shirts, you can add on a pocket-sized version of the full Tinkerer’s Handbook! You can also get one with Jeph Jacques’ Science is a Verb Now shirt.

The pocket version is a full 12 pages (I added some new stuff to make the printing easier) and makes a perfect stocking stuffer for that person in your life who doesn’t see the problem with getting sawdust all over the kitchen counter.


We’ve got a new Volume 2 infographic and multi-themed Prediction Card Sets over at Machine of Death! If you’d like to help us game-test some new MOD card games developed by our cadre of volunteer testers, I’m holding another play session tomorrow afternoon (Saturday the 15th) in Los Angeles. You’re invited! More about that here; please RSVP if you’d like to come! UPDATE: We’re full up for this round! Thanks everyone!

New shirt! “Unparsable Symbols”

In tenth-grade chemistry, I converted my name to an unpronounceable symbol, like Prince was doing at the time.

As I recall it was a bunch of math gibberish, like a compound expression inside a cube root, and Kilroy was peeking over the top of it, and the whole thing had an integral or something too. Mrs. Stockwell was tolerant enough to let me use the symbol on all my classwork, even going so far as to ask me which ASCII symbol she should use for me in the computer where she kept the grades.

The Student Formerly Known as David Malki (these antics preceded, and I suppose foreshadowed, the exclamation point) is no longer, but my fascination with preposterous semiotics continues. Thus my new shirt. Enjoy!

“Tinkerer’s Rules” POSTER

I’m pleased to announce that the “Tinkerer’s Rules” comic from the other week is now available as a 16″ x 20″ poster, suitable for classing up any office, workspace, project-cave, studio, creative den, bureau of wizardry, Ministry of Clever Thoughts, or crawlspace-under-the-stairs.

My good friends at TopatoCo will pack it up and ship it to you post-haste! Or, bundle it with any other clever poster to save on shipping.

Folks have also asked about getting the entire “Tinkerer’s Rules” as a booklet — I am taking it under advisement. For now, the poster’s the thing!

Dare I say…Father’s Day gift? Dare I?
