Working with the 3D pen is addictive. You can create actual objects, and that is much different as to drawing. I don’t need samples, I just like to create objects, and it is always currious do discover what comes out. The techniques I know now make it easy to make any object. Also the in-between are fun to watch. I made a few photos of the new work I am doing in the early stages. You can see how the structures develope:
I am currently working on a new object with the 3D pen from MyRiwell. It is again a larger object, so these take some time. I am using two new colours now. Perl-white and gold. Gives a special effect with the object for sure. Will make some good photos’s later too when it is finished and will get a name. Probaly the objects will be exhibited somewhere soon……
This weekend I worked on another object with the MyRiwell 3D pen. The objects are becoming larger and are fit for a future exhibition. I have developed the technique now to make the larger objects and that works out just fine. Slowly a set of objects is created. The skelet is made of ABS plastics and the structures onto the body are like layers of paint that form a tight structure. That way the objects are light and yet very stable and you can hold them without breaking.
I have made a few more photos for you so you can see more sides of the object. The rears are large, and the figure is wearing a green cap. Have to think of the title yet, and will soon decide on wether the object is finished or not. Because these objects take a lot of time and materials I already ordered a few more kilo’s of ABS plastics. This time a different colourset, so that will bring some more surprises for future objects. Please feel free in commenting what you think of the results.
The latest object I made with a 3D pen was tittled ‘Don’t loose your head’. One more addition in finishing this artwork was adding an ear. For now it is the largest object I made with a 3d PEN so far. I have put in beside the last one on one photo and I see the ew object is more then 40 cm high.
So, an object fit for an exhibition one of these days. Will let you know when that happens. I have discoverd nos a technique that works quite well with this specific 3D pen from Myriwell, and the ABS plastic (filiament) becomes strong enough to form larger objects that can be touched without breaking.
So drawing with a 3D pen and making a 3D object with it has become reality. You only need a lot of practice and patience. The object you see here took two days of work, and about 8 hours working time. You can’t concentrate the whole time, so you need a break now and then. But as you see, you can make it work, and the forms are what you want them to be.
Beside the larger object you also see the previous one and some of the IUOMA logo’s I created.

This morning I took this photo of a tree I pass nearly every day. The leaves are now almost gone as novembver has started. A photo to remember Guido Vermeulen in Belgium and I will post the photo there too:
A group started by Guido Vermeulen himself, and after his death the IUOMA-members keep publishing trees there to keep his memories alive.
Here are some IUOMA PR images that were used as a background for the IUOMA website at:
to make it look special. The images itself were made with a generator that places the image in another reality. Quite funny when you see them isolated as well.
That is why I published them here again, so they won’t vanish when the background is changed again.
Here you see one of the new drawings th the series Digital Human Beings, where I investigate the influence of the digital world on the analog human world and how we see things thee days. This drawing is still in progress. You see two versions, but still needs some work before it is finished. The title is already choosen.
