At one of our lunch meetings we took a short break to have a little Show and Tell with people who had something that they wanted to share.
You can zoom in on these ones to see the detail!!
Game designer Robert shared a few pieces from his massive collection of Warhammer figurines – he hand paints each figurine and he told me that each metal figurine can take from 3-10 hours to paint from start to finish!
This is Executive Producer Robert’s butterfly net “Martha” – the technique for catching a butterfly is different from what you think: when threatened, butterfly’s always fly upwards (curiously, moths always fly downwards), so when you want to catch one with your net you sweep up under the butterfly with a “tennis forehand” motion. When the butterfly is caught you can transfer them to a simple plastic container to examine them further.
Designer Cathy’s claim to fame: an appearance on a local bands CD case! (She’s in the picture, you can see the back of her head)
Artist Jayme brought in and explained her technique for creating homemade yarn (she was promptly invited to join HI’s resident Knitting Club)
Scripter Erik showcased the basics to some of his published theories about the topic of Fuzzy Numbers.
And I brought in… a singing Michael Jackson doll :)
My mom bought it for me a long time ago and it’s never been opened (I wonder if it’s worth something?) It sings “Black or White”, but I brought it in because MJ is one of my favorite musical artists.
