A new Desktop Mutoscope Project

Sorry for duplicate emails. Some of you may get 8 of these! And you are the folks to whom I'm most indebted!

I've just launched my newest desktop mutoscope. Some of my long term backers will recognize it as a revision of my Retroscope toy. Through the magic of 3d printing I’m able to use 60 frames instead of the previous 36 cards. And even more exciting is my collaboration with Anna Taberko. She’s a Minneapolis-based animation artist who creates fantastic animated loops. This is the first time her work has been presented in an analog form. There are 7 different animations from which to choose or you can purchase the whole set for a reduced price.

These desktop mutoscopes will only be available through this Kickstarter campaign.

Duration of the project is short--only 20 days--so I can get started on the project and get it done quickly. You can see it at:

Thanks again for your previous support. I hope you'll like the new project.

New Drawing Tool

Sorry for duplicate emails. Some of you may get 6 of these. And you are the folks to whom I'm most indebted!

I've just collaborated on a new drawing tool called the Pen Palette. it is a way to hold fountain pens and other drawing tools along with sample inks. It shows your tests and notes about your inks on a paper palette. Think of it as a painter's palette but made for inks and pens.

New Drawing Machine Project

Sorry for any duplication of posts but I wanted to alert backers that we've just launched a new toy project on kickstarter. Called the GatorGraph its an harmonic drawing machine using recycled 1 liter bottles as weights. Setup is quick and easy. 

The GatorGraph is built using fine quality materials so it will last for years. It can be also be extended for the DIY crowd.

Please take a look at the project at:
