Casefile Overview: Battersea Blue
The year is 1839. There was just one thing about it, though, that bugged me. It was relatively small compared to what an airship gasbag would theoretically need to be in order to lift a sailing-ship hull into the air. To be honest, normally I don’t worry… View Post
curlycurvynotquitestraight: ipoog: why call yourself a “gamer girl” why not just gamer doctor girl teacher girl cashier girl janitor girl scientist girl do you realize how dumb that sounds same reason why I reject the term “actress”. do you call female doctors “doctresses”? is a female teacher a “teachress”? it is politically incorrect to call a flight attendant a stewardess.

The Aethership *Wossitsname*: a Gallery
One of the first ingredients tossed into the V&V project cauldron was my creation of a Lego Steampunk airship. I’d seen several other cool bits of Lego Steampunkery online and I wanted to try my own. The ship part came together easily enough and the huge… View Post

Your ambition is highlighting their fears and failures and it’s easier for them to crush you then to challenge themselves. Don’t let them win. Now go make something. Sincerely, Geth YES.
J.R. Blackwell: The Hidden Step →
jrblackwell: There is a hidden step in every creative project that no one talks about. The Hidden Step. This is because it’s not a step you do, but a step that happens to you. It has happened to me in every significant project I’ve ever undertaken. Anything I’ve done that’s been worth doing. Anything that has…
