my very first

After watching this great video essay by Sarah Vowell about her part in The Incredibles, I was inspired to start documenting my creative process by video.  I picked up a little Flip video camera (because I'm all about the instant process and portability) and this is the result.

In a late night, vector drawing induced moment of insanity, I ordered some stuff from Ponoko.  My pieces arrived today, and it seemed like the perfect opportunity for video.  So without further ado - my very first video of my first Ponoko pieces.

I love Ponoko! I totally squeal each time one of my packages arrives...great use of cardboard :)

Do you mind if sometime in the future I put a link to your video in my blog? People are wondering how it's done...

Very cool Megan! I love seeing the video diary.

Hey cool little experiment. They would work great in felt from Ponoko.

megan said...

thanks - ashley!

dan, i'd love to make them in felt - they'd be much more reusable - once I get the thickness issues sorted out, its on the to do list.

Great vid. And so cool to cross-use a design, opens up a million possibilities when you see a design you like as to thinking laterally as to what you can use it for, and being able to do apply different options through Ponoko even better!
