Knights of the Alfalfa Patch
Another group meeting; another silly picture. I started with the eyes and just let the rest of it happen; I ended up with a main character for the silly, completely made-up, story Hamster Tails: Knights of the Alfalfa Patch.
I was sitting in on a discussion of some of the on-going research in our department and found my mind wandering; this is the result.
Torr Seal (Remastered)
And here’s the lovable Torr Seal again, this time with some color and a cape.
It’s Torr Seal!
Another product of the weekly group meeting. ‘Torr Seal’ is a brand name of epoxy that can be used in vacuum/high vacuum chambers (Torr is a unit of pressure measure) and I’ve been using it to insulate a magnetic probe. While I was working, I thought of the multiple meanings of the word ‘seal’ and then had the idea to create a super-powered science friend to accompany the Awesome Opossum (http://www.skineart.com/?s=awesome+opossum). This afternoon’s group meeting gave me a chance to indulge my silliness.
