Pimping life, one craft at the time.
This craftie section is brand new. I’ve spammed my mates with a gazillion of pictures of all those do-it-yourself sideprojects and cooking endeavors, but never blogged about them.
That’s about to change, and I’ll be adding some patterns, recipes, guides and design freebies here and there too. Excited yet? I know I am.
THE MOST RECENT RANTS
PASSIONS & INFATUATIONS
I’m a designer/illustrator by profession so I’m going to exclude all painting (aquarel, oil, ecoline, etc…) and
drawing (pencil, markers, charcoal, etc) techniques from this list, as I’m supposed to be proficient at my job 🙂
