Godlabs IDs


Some lab IDs to test out the logos. I thought it would be funny if the IDs issued were unusually long so they wouldn’t fit in any of the regular ID holding devices made since the dawn of man, but I sort of abandoned that idea because I couldn’t think of more stuff to put on them.

God Labs Logos


I was working on logos for signs and IDs and such and had a couple triangle/double triangle concepts going. I wanted to avoid that direction though because people seem to derive some kind of meaning and power from triangles and other basic shapes. I looked up from working and a lady had a pendant with a triangle and circle in just such a configuration, confirming my reservation. Then I started going with this top heavy design and liked it as it looks both precarious and ominous. Made me think of that pedestal the guy from Shadow of the Colossus places the girl on; looks like it was made for smashing people

First Stripboard Fuzz

 Wired and working! I ordered more 24AWG wire but in the meantime I've been scavenging every leftover scrap from the kits I've made. This is a lot more fun and customizable than the kits, but they were a great starting point. I want to make a tube amp sometime in the future now.

Case Painted


Case painted, again going in a different direction than I was first thinking

DooM II: Hell on Earth, case


Sculpted some skulls onto a case I made for a fuzz I made. I was thinking of the soul gate from DooM II: Hell on Earth, but it kind of went in a different direction. I wasn’t sure if it’d stick or just come off in a sheet, but it seems to have baked on the aluminum.

Stripboard MXR Distortion+


Made an MXR Distortion+ from salvaged parts, it took every alligator clip I had to test it but it worked! The Red LEDs I’m using as clippers came from a broken blender I harvested and give a suprisingly great gnarly grit when turned up. This is the first stripboard circuit I’ve made after I started making pedal kits about a year ago, and it is even more fun and rewarding and I got 5 more circuits already lined up.
