Helping Artists, Crafters, and Inventors

The long awaited book I've been working on is finally available!

If you are an artist, inventor, or creative person of any type, my book will show you how to use all sorts of high-tech tools for designing, making, marketing and selling your work.

There is a section on passive income as well as one on how to be more organized with your business and lots of links to free software to help you do all these things. I talk about everything from 3D printing to laser cutters, CNC, and more.

Read more about it at

You can also purchase the ebook for immediate download there as well.

Thanks again to all the people that supported the Kickstarter for the book!

Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Paper Cut Art

In honor of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary art show at the famous Nerdist Gallery in Hollywood Callifornia, I made a couple of original pieces of paper cut art based on the show.

I've been a fan since I was a kid, and actually got a chance to meet a few of the classic doctors and companions, so I was very excited to be a part of this gallery show.

Here are some pieces from the show. I call them "Illusion Art" since up close they just look like abstract black and white lines. But, the further away you go, the more they appear to be a full grey scale image! The square ones are 12x12 inches. If you would like a custom one made for you based on a photo of yourself, a pet, family member, etc. I can do that size or up to 18x24 inches. Please email at Craftosterone (at) G mail dot com with the image you want and I can give you a quote.

Why I havn't been posting lately

Just a quick heads up. I haven't been posting lately because I am hard at work on finishing my book, "The Neo-Artist".

It's coming along quite nicely, and am really excited to get it out into the world and into the hands of all the people who pre-ordered it during the Kickstarter campaign for it.

Interview with popular 3D Printing blog

I had a great time meeting the folks from a few weeks ago.  I did and interview with them that you can see here:

It gives a bit of my history, and we also talk about my Kickstarter project to get "The Neo-Artist" book out to the public.

Oh yeah, I also found this cat that wanted to help get the word out too!

There are less than 45 hours left to contribute to the Kickstarter and get the ebook at a discount or to get the limited edition physical copy of the book.  It ends July 12 at 1PM (PAC).

Can Chocolate Cure Obesity?

I often put raw cacao into my smoothies because of it's taste and antioxidant effect.  I just read a story that gives even more reasons for doing this.  I don't put sugar in my smoothies, and I think that is important as sugar will often have the opposite effect.

Obesity is in part caused by inflammations in the body.  In a recent study, cacao (pure chocolate) was given to obese mice and it had a profound effect.  Take a look at this article for more info:

The Neo-Artist (book and Kickstarter)

As many of you know I've been involved with 3D printing for over 4 years, and have been using different types of high-tech tools to make art and products for most of my life.  Over the last 4 years I've also taught a lot of people how to use these tools to make their own ideas become reality.

After doing the lecture at California Institute of the Arts I realized that the most effective way to help the most people would be to put out a book to explain all these high-tech tools, as well as how to market and sell your work.

I'm doing a Kickstarter for the book and am offering the E-Book at about 50% off of what the expected retail price will be.  You can watch the video, and read about all the rewards for participating here:

Besides my own years of experience going into the book, there will also be some interviews with other successful artists including Tim Biskup, Cathie Fillian, Mike Kunkel, the folks at Bug House, and more!

Some of the Kickstarter premiums include special discounts on a few of my most popular silver pendant designs!

The Kickstarter runs from June 11 at 1PM (PST) until July 12 at 1PM (PST) so check it out right away, and please share it with other creative people you know so that more artists can learn to set them selves free from relying on corporations, and instead make money from their own creations.
