V2 Wooden Train Project - Optimus Prime


So here's the same train from yesterday's post, but with a few blocks on top and an Optimus Prime sticker set that I made. I know that the truck isn't supposed to be this big compared to the trailer, but wanted it to stand out. It looks funny, which I admit. Anyway!

Learned a few things. The 1/4" block that connects the wheels (the plank) is too tall. I have to use a 1/4" block that sits between the wheels, not on top. Trying that with the next one that I build. The tacks super glued into the brass tubing is working well for now. Going to wait a few days and then try to pry them off.

V2 Wooden Train Project


With the use of some tools and new materials, I was able to produce V2 of the Wooden Train Project thing. I don't have a good name for it yet, so I'll just keep mixing up different synonyms for "wooden", "train", "DIY", and "blank".

Some of the main differences being that the axles are made out of brass tubing and the end caps are made metal as well. The use of my Dremel workstation also made it quick to drill the holes into the body of the train. This means more uniform looking pieces at a faster pace.

I think I'm getting close to a final prototype. The main thing now is to take this prototype and find the right "custom train" to put on top to make this the thing people want. Right now it sitting empty makes a cool concept, but nothing more. Nothing worth funding anyway.

Project Gameboy Cover - 006 - The Addams Family: Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt


Apparently this game was based on the cartoon version of The Addams Family. I remember watching this show as a kid, but only because it was the only cartoon on before another show I probably actually wanted to watch. Beetlejuice? I don't remember.

I've decided to draw every single original Gameboy game cartridge cover art. There's 733 titles on this Wikipedia list and is the most comprehensive one I can find. I guess I'll see you in 2 years when I really hope to have it all done.

Every one of these will be offered as 2" magnets for your fridge over at Probably Fun.

Project Gameboy Cover - 004 - Aah! Harimanada


My Asian character writing is awful. My dad put it best in that I'm not writing characters, I'm drawing them.

Project Gameboy Cover - 003 - 99 Nendohan: Eitango Center 1500


This game was a dictionary that allowed Japanese speakers have access to an affordable database of English words along with their pronunciations. What a fun cover to draw!

Project Gameboy Cover - 002 - 4-in-1 Funpak Volume 2


I wasn't looking forward to drawing this one only because it felt really boring. I am glad that I did it though. Sometimes you have to work through the not-fun-stuff to get to the fun stuff. Ironically, this is called "Funpak".
