Video 3D Pen object by Ruud Janssen

New object made with the 3D pen on 7 till 9 October 2016. I used 4 colors ABS plastics to create this larger object. A video is made to show how it looks from different angles. It is an abstract work that is still in progress. So after adding some minor details it will be ready and will get a title too. Not sure yet.

New cow rubberstamp from Helleen de Vaan – Netherlands

In the summer I was abroad for a few weeks, and when I returned I found some very nice pieces of mail-art at the P.O. Box. Two of them came from Heleen de Vaan (Netherlands). One of them contained an original new COW rubberstamp that Heleen has designed and made rubberstamps out. One for herself, and (lucky me) one for the TAM Rubberstamp Archive. I already printed the stamp a few times, and it looks wonderful. The names this time typically connected to Heleen’s network, and that is what the COW stamp is all about. Will use it with pleasure and will see how i can come up with another surprise for Heleen in return.
