Hey! So on Friday at 8pm, Nick will be airing my favorite episode that I directed for Book 2, “Night Of A Thousand Stars,” written by Josh Hamilton. It’s Bolin-centric, which is probably why it’s my favorite. It’s going to air as part of an hour block with “Harmonic Convergence,” written by Tim Hedrick and directed by Ian Graham, but I didn’t have anything to do with that. You should watch that one, too, though.
So! To celebrate the airing of my favorite episode, I’d like to have a little contest. I’m going to post three weird drawings that I did for the animatic version of the show. You post screen caps of the actual beautiful Mir animation that resulted from these weird drawings, and I’ll email you a drawing of your favorite Korra character signed (digitally, in photoshop) by as many of my coworkers that I can coerce. Tag #NOATS or #cbheck or #colin heck in your post and I’ll see it. I’ll only do one drawing per character (so for example, anybody that requests Bolin will get the same Bolin drawing), but I’ll personalize each one when I send it somehow. Clear enough? No? Here we go anyway!
Here’s Edgar Allan Poe
BOLIN SEES INTO YOU
I don’t get why people think Unalaq’s evil. Look at how happy he is!
There you go! Screen cap away! Enjoy the episode and the rest of the season!
… so I may have jacked the JPN tour art to design a custom phone case

Your name is JOHN and today is your THIRTEENTH birthday. Being thirteen, it is now time to start your SACRED JOURNEY through the vast plains of the outside to get to the LAND OF THE FALLEN. The light from the EMBLEM on your chest pulses slightly as your powers slowly awaken, coursing through your veins. The villagers say that once you have reached your destination, you may be granted a wish, or so they say.
You don’t know what will happen on the way there, nor what will happen once you arrive, but you feel that this will be a long, unforgettable journey.
What will you do?
An AU I’m currently developing called Pilgrimstuck! It’s loosely based off the Holy Grail and Journey (the video game) I’ll be making full body shots too if ever u v u this is just a beta, and I’ll be adding more to john’s outfit. Doing all the beta kids for now
In-development online app for designing, generating and exporting your own customized fonts:
Type design is a discipline of hard work that requires a lot of time and knowledge.
Say hello to prototypo!
Start a font by tweaking all glyphs at once. With more than twenty parameters, design custom classical or experimental shapes. Once prototyping of the font is done, each point and curve of a glyph can be easily modified.
Explore, modify, compare, export with infinite variations.
The app isn’t available as yet, but there will be a campaign next month for funding - it will be online and open-source:
Our plan is to release a first beta in Oct. 2013, with the features of the processing-based prototype demonstrated in the video: a-Z glyphs exportable as .ttx (convertible to .otf using fonttools).
We will launch a crowdfunding campaign at the same time to fund the development of all the features we have in mind for a 1.0: more parameters, more glyphs, built-in .otf export, drag&dropable points and unicorns.
A potential essential design tool - more can be found at prototypo.io here
Kepler’s Cosmic Geometric Series by Tallmadge Doyle
About the project:
In an effort to determine the distances between planets in our solar system the great German Astronomer Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) determined that the planetary intervals are defined by the relationship between the five regular geometric solids.
In ancient geometry the regular solids held a special, almost sacred significance. Of particular interest to Kepler was their association with the four elements: the cube with Earth, Tetrahedron with Fire, Octahedron with Air, Icosahedron with Water as well as the dodecahedron’s association with the heavens. The Intention was to demonstrate that these geometrical forms were building blocks in creation.
Kepler built on the ideas of Copernicus, creating the fabric of a new system that paved the way for Newtonian theory. Retaining the sun as the focal point of our system, he described the planetary orbits, no longer in terms of circles, but ellipses. It is said that Kepler was seeking to discover the divinely instituted harmony that pervades the universe and binds its diverse parts into a concordant whole.
