Crossing Abbey Road

A nice idea for music video - to catch "a day in the life" of Abbey Road (and various people crossing it)


A big collection of variations on this famous "Abbey Road" cover can be seen here.

Aaron Ristau's Steampunk Sculptures

Aaron shares with us: "I have been studying mechanical watch movements during this season. The goggles seemed like a fun way to reference the awesome detail that went into older watch movements.
