EVE Online: Create A Starship Contest
 Tweet

 Starships are the shield, sword and signature for the pilots of
 EVE. They are created both to tear down entire empires and to
 gather and transport the resources needed to build anew. What
 new machine will you bring to the warfront? Will yours be a
 craft of elegance and beauty? Will the mere presence of it
 prove more intimidating than any arsenal a pilot could load into
 its bays? Design a starship and enter it into the EVE Online
 Create A Starship Contest for a chance to have your dream
 ship become a reality. The 1st Place winner will have their
 ship added to the premiere space MMOG (Massively Multiplayer

I love creating things!
I work with art, music, code, and whatever else I can get my hands on.
Currently i work in the art department of a tshirt company and work primarily with vector images.
Interests
Lately I have been playing my keyboard in the dark before bed.  The idea is to remove all distraction so I learn faster.  I have one of those old Concertmate 970 Keyboards.

As you can see… the keyboard has a huge number of digital instruments and beats.  I cannot change instruments in the dark BECAUSE I cannot read the menu at all.  So I got to wondering… if I could paint it with glow in the dark paint.

I had a theory that I decided to test.

I knew that glow in the dark paint was more brilliant on a WHITE surface than a BLACK surface.  What I didn’t know was how much more brilliant.  If the contrast was high enough I could just paint the entire surface instead of trying to paint just the letters (which I wouldnt even attempt).

It turns out… you can!  You can slather any black-and-white surface with glow in the dark paint and the text becomes quite legible in the dark.  Unfortunately though… doing this requires a pretty thick application of glow in the dark paint.  It is very visible in the light.

So theres a tradeoff.  You end up with a messy-looking keyboard in natural light that you can read at night.  You give up a little of the day for the night.

I thought it was interesting and hope someone else finds it interesting too.

Seal of Chaoddity
I am going to use this on my letters. Wax seals are really fun.
Still have to bake it and cast it in metal. Already bought the wax.

When i was a kid I liked to decorate my school supplies.  Just by experimenting I discovered that if you use a red permanent marker on a black plastic surface… you get some really cool metallic gold look.


I have no idea why.

The only word of caution I would give is that the ink has a nasty habit of rubbing off so i would use some form of resin or sealer to prevent that.
