In the last two parts, I related how I stumbled into 3D modeling and printing over the summer. I had two projects, a Homo naledi skull and some busts of my comic character for my friends. While the former was being printed, the latter kept growing in scope. Instead of… Read more“Secret Summer Craft Project, part 3”
Secret Summer Craft Project, part 2
In Part 1, I talked about wanting to make a 3D printed Homo naledi skull for my department and how it led me into yet another hobby. I had a lot more summer to go after getting my feet wet with 3D modeling and printing. What else could I do… Read more“Secret Summer Craft Project, part 2”
A Little More Keeley: Comic Hero Extraordinaire!

Here are three that can be loosely filed under “laziness.” The respective teams involved really could have done a little bit more work to give the… Read more“Comics Goofs Past and Present”
Did You Know Keeley Has Her Own Twitter?
I’m sure you’ve noticed my Twitter feed in the upper-right corner of this page. “Why do you use Twitter?” people ask me.
