I gotta say, it’s probably taking title to Soul-Mate Land when one can write a request in PHP for the slow cooker procedure and have it executed flawlessly by the significant other.

^Translation = “If it’s 8:00 am or later AND the onions are caramelized, please turn this thing off. If that’s not true but it’s 9:00 am or later, please turn it off.”

Free Circuit Board Gift Tags!

So my store Fractalspin has been carrying these cool Circuit Board Ornaments for a while, and there’s now a quantity discount if you buy 10 or more.

We learned from some of our customers that they were using them as gift tags for presents, and we were buying quite a few at a time, but unfortunately last year we ran out of stock to get them out by Christmas. This year we’re starting the promotion early enough for larger quantity orders in time for holiday madness.

I also designed some free gift tag templates you can print out and attach to gifts, right away, for free!

If you want smaller tags for smaller gifts, just print them out at 50% or whatever size, instead.

Hope you find them useful!

New art site! Also, you can support pit bull rescue by buying an art print

I’ve finally gotten together my visual art portfolio site (lizmcleanknight.com) and figured it would be great to launch it with a campaign that supports Pit Bull Awareness Month (October).

Buy an art print and support pit bull rescue!
This marker drawing is of Charlotte, an insanely sweet pit bull terrier whom I adopted from Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue in 2011.

From now until the end of 2013, I will donate 10% of the proceeds from sales of the archival art prints of Charlotte through Society6 to Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue. [Read More]

The smallest size (8″ x 10″) starts at just $19, and you can choose from larger sizes as well. We’re getting close to the gifty season, and it would be nice to support an animal welfare group as well as give a fellow animal lover a meaningful gift.

I also make interesting visual art, as it turns out
I realize I’m more well known as a Chicago electronic musician and the impetus behind the online geek-chic boutique, Fractalspin, but I also am a visual artist who formally studied art history. At California Institute of the Arts, I got to refine my work from within a contemporary fine arts perspective, and that’s been a part of what I do ever since. Check it out:

Well, feel free to explore, and you can start a public converstation with me on Google+ Twitter, or Facebook, and if you just want to send a personal message, here’s an easy way to do just that.
