    Wink What goofy creative things do you do?

    In some downtime whilst waiting for feed back on a piece of commissioned work for someone, I pulled out the acrylics and a small piece of wood I found and painted a little Tiki mask on it. Now, this is the goofy part of my tale, I then took the little mask and put in the hands of my Alien Queen toy for my girlfriend to discover in the morning.

    What goofy creative things do you do?

    Who knew the Alien Queen to be so bashful...

    What do the community members get up to when they get a spare few minutes for mischief?

    (You can read more about the why and how of this little painting on my blog if you wish here)

    I posted this in another thread too but I found a $7 bamboo cutting board at TJ Maxx. I bought it and then took the trucks off my old cheap used longboard and put them on my cutting board. (Drilled the holes wrong the first time, oops.) It's a fun little guy! Very portable. Has the size of a skateboard but the feel of a longboard.

    Then I took the deck of the old longboard, put it on my wall, and turned it into an ugly clock, heh.

    I also took a cheap broken $40 violin and turned it into a clock

    And I cut the Hulk out of my Heroscape box and turned him into a clock

    And I also combined a CD with the matting of a picture frame to make a clock

    And here's a crappy paper piano I printed off threw together when I was bored at work, haha

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    Indeed! How many clocks do you need? Is the answer the number of rooms you have in your house?

    The paper piano... how'd you come about putting that thing together?

    Thanks for sharing!

    I bought a bunch of clocks from thrift stores and used their pieces for new ones. I've talked about making some to sell. These were just 'cause I had the pieces.

    The piano I just printed off the Internet, cut it out, folded it up, and taped it (I didn't have any glue.) I wasn't very careful in my folding so it's a pathetic attempt but whatever, heh. If you actually put the time and effort in (unlike me) you can get some pretty rad paper models.

    Oh man, that link to those paper models is incredible. Scrolling down them is mind blowing! There are some very talented people out there indeed. I might look into doing this one day.

    The first post made me smile (: It's the sort of thing I would do. Recylcing and making them into proper clocks? Awesome And the paper models are insane too!

    Whether I am cramping things up for an upcoming school exam or just randomly bored, usually the first situation, I will usually craft the most awkward things. I've done a few models completely with whitetacks, some of them stuck on the wall, but these had to be removed sometime ago ): Wish i could have taken a photo of them.

    Interesting topic

    I....make animal costumes and masks.


    (Note, this is just a head base, it needs the fake fur 'skin', ears, neck and hinges for it's jaw to help the jaw move when one opens their mouth.)

    Loving this thread, hope more people post, stuff like this is really funky to look at and very inspiring

    manlybrian How come you like making clocks so much?

    Something I took up doing about a month or so ago, fairly pleased at how they turned out so far.

    Yep.

    I like the fursuits/masks. Just like I like the Anime fandom for it's cosplay.

    Hell, I adore many different forms of costuming. I find it cool to be able to WEAR your art.


    Crane- Oh! Very nice stuff. Morbid in a way, but awsome.

    Thanks feathered I'd like to point out these are latex models, not real creatures lol

    Your mask looks like a dog trying to climb out of a sofa after getting stuck
