Only a few hours left to get this beautiful poster in support of Project for Awesome.

I mean for godsake this is only the poster and I’m almost tearing up.

Get it and other awesome stuff here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/project-for-awesome—2

This is a thing I made.

I created all the buckyball formations and photographed them myself. I also improved my Photoshop skills by attempting to separate them from the background/shadows. I used the magic wand, easy select, magnetic laso, circular selection tool, among other things. I also changed the images to black and white, and changed the exposure and gamma correction. Last of all, I created the composition. I printed a couple of these for TEDxUW tomorrow.

I made this DFTBA stamp a couple weekends ago. I thought it may be good for wrapping paper and notes as well as generally spreading awesome, but then I had an idea to make this print for my wall, so I don’t forget to be awesome. It’s hard to tell in the picture but I used metallic silver and gold pigment ink (Ink it Up!), a silver paint pen for the ‘Don’t Forget to be Awesome’ lettering, and red, blue and green Staedtler triplus gel-liners for outlining some stuff. I also used a ruler as aguide so that the spacing was relatively even/straight (Okay, so I didn’t do that the first time, and I had to redo it, but I think it looks pretty good now!)

EDIT: I have now opened an etsy shop called Cool Stuff I Want to Buy, you can buy stamps like this in the Stamps – Nerdfighteria section of the shop!
