pizza looks great. I give it a go.

pizza: acropolis and le gardeaux look best to me. hopefully some other people will be interested in one of those. possibly masa kowai-ka.
project two:
took the stupid color table off.
need to adjust the line weight or darken the grey grid in the background because the plotter had trouble with it.
need help with the information design part of it, right now i have line weight representing water content, length representing time, height representing temperature of bean/slurry/milk at that particular point, im using words for verb+noun, such as "boil slurry." i could use some input on that. i need to change the size of the type as well, it is quite small right now. also i think i need a vertical line through the graph to separate each step. or the word vertical through the graph where each step begins..
let us look at it sometime soon, it is bedtime for me, nighty nighty


I will be around all week. Several meetings planned, but let me know when you are free. This goes for everyone--glad to find time to meet this week. -Tony

hey, critter, thanks for using the right japanese.
i just realized that teaching japanese to you was my biggest mistake that i made during this semester. (but sitting next to you was the best.)

So, I think I'm ready to pack my Robert in the box now.
but i need to find a way to hold four slinkys in the box so that they won't tanggle up.

masa, thin plastic toploading sleeves around slinkies maybe?
or perhaps the inside of your box could have a constructed thing of e-flute [?] or cardstock or whatever youre using (where is your box by the way?) that has compartment thingies for the slinkies each to be in so that they dont get tangled. you regret teaching me japanese, i regret teaching you english

thanks critter! i really like the idea of constructing small section for each slinky inside the box. and i might use the strings to tie each slinkys up, just in cases.
i hope our toy (where is your raccoon by the way?) turns out great with nice packages soon.
if bobby needs some help, let me know.

hey masa,

any thought to the small button straps i mentioned earlier? little buttons straps from his shoes to his butt would keep his feet in line and provide for further carrying possibilities.
just a thinkthunkthought.

i love you guys, I feel like I've gotten to know the people in the studio on a different level than in any other studio... I'm gonna miss you guys when I'm in ID world next semester...

masa- maybe you could make triangle or a square pieces that would separate the appendages

Some sort of thin tubelike cloth should be workable (mini arm-stockings basically)... maybe just use socks?

i think your done as far as i can see, but if you kept going well that would be great too. As for the legs i think critter and kevin both made great points, however personally i think the shoe lace thing goes more with the feeling of your toy, and would be best as a result.
