UPDATE: Etsy & Tindie Shop Open

You might recall that a while back I made this wedding announcement trinket/figurine. Well not long after I decided to try and make a more marketable version. I started working on this in early November 2016 but then put it on hold as other projects took over. Recently I started working on it again and managed to finally finish it off in the weekend.

To give you an idea of how the figurine design evolved here is an image of the different revisions. The other thing this shows is my painful progress with driving SOLIDWORKS ;^)

Here is the final product:

And a video to show it all off:

PROJECT: The Vidya Gaem Awards - 2016

As the name suggests the /v/ga's are an online awards ceremony organised by a small group of /v/ users. What you might not know is that these guys have been going strong since 2011. This year they decided to make the awards cyberpunk themed. Since this is my favourite genre I wanted to make something cool for the ceremony. 

In the end monoframe came up with a design for a neon sign which I made using side emitting fibre optic cable and a few powerful LED's. I was also lucky enough to have the design/build video chosen for the announcement trailer, which you can view below:
