Dumb idea: z80 based retrocomputer with integrated keyboard that also can operate as an external usb keyboard. (Or: a microcontroller-based keyboard that can also function as a simple 8-bit computer?)

Going to have to try this one again with oil based ink, but like it so far

In the basement amusing my kid with a tape I found in a box from the early 90s; a chunk of one side is a live set taped off WFMU and I can't track down the songs or band at all. There's a cover of Hinterland's "Stanley's Minutes" sandwiched in there, and later on the tape there's a Truck Stop Tea Party interview about Idiotland, a comic that was published in 1993, if that helps date anything.

I was just experimenting with technique and texture on this one. I remember trying to use every square inch of these blocks because they were kind of pricey for me at the time.

I used to enjoy making bookplates. I can't figure out if I stopped because I got less possessive or because I just stopped lending out books.

Tarot card images circa 1995 or so. I distinctly remember having done prints of these with letterpress titles, so they must date from when I had access to a print shop (1996 at the latest).
