Polymer Clay Nerdy Robot

"Polymer Clay Nerdy Robot"I am absolutely smitten with the polymer clay robots that Lisastarchild hand sculpts, especially this fabulous nerd love one! I came across her SleepyRobot13 shop on Etsy and fell in love. Her robot creations are charming and have wide ranging appeal to all sorts of nerds and geeks. She makes everything from a Batman Robot to a Zombie Robot. The Super Hero Robot (with glow-in-the-dark underpants!) and the 3-D Movie Robot are also adorable!

Stained Glass Test Pattern

Stained Glass Test Pattern

Hello everyone!  Kim here :)  Since I’m one of the GC newbies, allow me to introduce myself…  by day I am a professional photographer and graphic artist living and working in the (now) thriving arts district of central Ohio.  When not doing photography related work, I spend my time off the computer– crafting and designing things usually relating to Doctor Who, Harry Potter, science, or the newest meme.  I’d likely shrivel up and creatively die if I wasn’t always working on *something*, and I think it’s important to enjoy the process, and also to leave things better than I found them.

I’m very honored and excited to be a part of this blog, and can’t wait to find all you geeks out there more supercool things to look at!!  Oh, and make sure to follow all my newest shenanigans at http://blkpixel.tumblr.com.

On to the good stuff!  This is one killer TV test pattern done in stained glass… It apparently belongs to TV/Video production guru Peter Roof of the Washington, DC area.  I think it’s the perfect combination of subtle geekery and bold clean lines of color, and also easy to recreate if you’re handy with a soldering iron!  I found this bad boy on Make: a DIY/Project site.

One Scarf to Rule Them All

one scarf to rule them all

This Lord of the Rings inspired scarf was created by Ravelry user Tina Yeung (aka Tiny Tuna).  The Elvish writing that circles around each end of the scarf translates to “One Ring to Rule them All, One Ring to find them, One Ring to Bring them All and in the Darkness bind them” from Tolkien’s famous novels.  What better way to stay warm and profess your nerd hood?
