Not that I’m lacking in the ability to spot a good opportunity to make crap, but the 3Doodler has given me the most excellent opportunity of all. It’s so easy to make nonsensical squiggly lines with it that don’t look like anything. Don’t misinterpret this as a bad review of the 3Doodler— the pen is an amazing and fun invention, and you can do beautiful things with it, as I see all over the internet except my website.
You know the saying “your eyes are bigger than your stomach”? Well I’m guilty of my eyes being bigger than my know-how. (I’m often guilty of this, and I have drawerfuls of shitty work to prove it.)
So here’s what I made right after plugging in the pen for the very first time:
And these are things I made several hours later:
And then I made jewelry and two letter “R”s:
Anti-Climactic? Not Yet.
The best anti-climaxes come after several failures, so in the spirit of making ugly objects and taking lovely pictures of them, I’m going to keep 3Doodling so that I can fully explore the world of disasters that this pen can open up. And after I’ve made some so-so pendants, and slightly better letter Rs, then— and only then— can we declare an anti-climax.
(Please note: this is all in fun, and should not be taken as a review of the 3Doodler. It is a great product. I would recommend it. Like any tool, if you master it you can make great work with it. I plan to practice more often, and order a variety of pen tips and molds that can help me make better “drawings.”)
That’s all for now…
