Toronto-based conceptual photographer Justin Poulsen came up with an unsettlingly awesome way to promote his work. Instead of mailing prints of his surreal photos to potential clients, for his 2015 promotional campaign Poulsen made a batch of literal “thumbs drives,” USB Flash drive storage devices (somtimes referred to as thumb drives) painstakingly designed to look like his own left thumb.

To create the thumb drives, Poulsen first created a mold of his thumb. The thumbs that popped out of the mold were the correct size and shape, but they lacked detail. So, Poulsen hand painted each one to make it look as realistic as possible.

As you can see in the bottom photo, the finished piece bears an uncanny resemblance to his own thumb. Poulsen told PetaPixel that his goal for this project was “allowing potential clients to experience both the tactile and visual quality of my craft.”

We think he did just that and more. He may given a few people nightmares as well. (Click here for a brief behind-the-scenes video.)

Now that you’ve gotten a good look at his thumb, head over to Justin Poulsen’s website to check out his photography.

{} Journal 3: FINISHED.

Took a little bit to finish and I might make some edits here and there to blend in the stains some more, but here it is! My journal prop for Comic Con. I’m hecka excited about this book, purely because it’s done and it looks so nice. All the pages found on the Wikia have been added into the book, except Dipper’s additional entries. (I may add in the Ultraviolet invisible ink later if I find some)

{} A few progress pictures of my Journal

Ta-Dah! Here’s a handful of images from the journal I’m making as a prop for one of my cosplays. I’ll be fixing these up to look more grimy and old tomorrow, but for now I just want to finish drawing up all the pages from book three.

Unless the book somehow is stolen or destroyed maliciously between now and next weekend, it’ll be with me at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo on Sunday.

Sealing Wax Hack

Do your actors go through consumable period paper props like it’s 1699? Is the sealing wax for Twelfth Night bankrupting your prop budget? No fear, our favorite friend hot glue is here!

This is an easy trick to make multiple fake seals on the cheap. We start with the cadillac of hot glue guns, the Surebonder Pro, and put it on the lowest heat setting. Squeeze out a nickel-sized blob of glue onto aluminum foil. Take your seal stamp and spritz it with a bit of diluted Murphy’s oil, dab off any excess, then press into the hot glue and wait 3 seconds. The stamp should remove easily without getting stuck (if not, wait longer or use more oil). Once they’ve cooled, peel the seals off the tin foil and color with a Sharpie (or paint them if you’re feeling fancy). We usually super glue our seals to the top flap of the envelope and use double-stick tape on the bottom half so it’s easy to open.

Insist on being a purist? This webpage explains how to make real wax seals along with a bit of history: http://www.artofmanliness.com/2013/02/13/wax-seals-a-history-and-how-to/
