The One with Drawing Tops

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Now that I've subscribed to ffffound! I find things on a daily basis that inspire me to want to create. My binder of things to make is overflowing...

Such as:

Drawing Tops by Thomas Forsyth. "It's a spinning-top, that uses a pen as the spindle. It is recognizable, un-intimidating, and invites people to interact with objects that can lead to unpredictable results, or an emergent property. Where the pen marks the surface, a beautiful map of the experience and events that have occurred is produced."

Why not have a go... Thomas' Drawing Tops are now available to buy on his etsy shop.
Here's a video of the simple process:

Dald - the list of things to help me make when I come out to WA next is growing exponentially!


  1. I want one~! Can I only buy this or can I make one?

  2. Actually, I think I might tell dad to make some this weekend or something... I want to do that!

    I wonder if it'd be the same with colored sharpies or something that'd be cool.

  3. Is it Friday yet...I really wanna win. ;)

  4. "L" - I bet you could make one. My sister wants my dad to make some this weekend, maybe we can coax him into making a few extra for artists such as yourself :)
