THE FINAL ECCC 2015 Sketch-A-Matic Sketches! All of these are from day 3.
This is part 4. Check out part 1, part 2 and part 3. The final sketch includes an awesome SPECIAL EFFECT that I learned from Kris Wilson. Of course, it negates ever hanging the sketch on the wall, much less framing it. I suggested the recipient build a backlit shadow box to display it in. It… didn’t seem like they were going to. Maybe they were worried about the joinery skills required to build a shadow box. Parents, teach your kids at least 3 forms of joinery. I suggest biscuit, dovetail and dado. To be safe, you should at least give them a primer in mortise and tenon as well. If we don’t teach our children basic and advanced woodworking skills, someone else will. Probably Norm Abram.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Sketch-A-Matic, here’s a bit of info about it:
INTRODUCING THE SKETCH-A-MATIC!
The idea is simple, but the technology behind it is VAST and COMPLICATED!
It works like this:
- The willing participant presses the big, red, impressive button
- The machine SPRING TO LIFE whirring and gyrating and buzzing
- When it finishes processing your individual, one of a kind sketch topic, you will hear a distinctive DING!
- 2 topic cards are spit out of the machine and placed on the sketch generation matrix
- The user may then choose to ad a multiplier card that will irrevocably alter the sketch in heretofore unimaginable ways!
- The machine’s operator (known as: The Artist) begins generating the one of a kind sketch using pencils and pens and paper like some horribly out of date 2D printer
