Mmmm grilled cheese.

They say that when a chef gets home from work all they want to make for dinner is a grilled cheese toasty. I get that, grilled cheese toasties are awesome.

Part of our work at Rant is to help others with their blogging and online social activity, so when we get home from work we make grilled cheese toasties instead of blogging. Mmmmm grilled cheese.

uh… ok then, check out some of the stuff we have been doing:

Raise money, buy parts, build computer, design controllers, implement head and voice control systems, and ultimately create a whole new world of exploration for an amazing person who has not been able to fully experience gaming and the internet due to limited fine motor skills.

Zacunseen
Zac is an amazing person who I’ve been fortunate to work with for the last few months. If you live near me then you have probably seen or met Zac, and if you haven’t then be sure to check out his blog and band TraLaLaBlip.

The Unseen Machine
Rachael and I built the Unseen Machine a few months back and have been moving it from galleries to workshops around the Northern Rivers.

Coming up for air.

We’ve been such slackers with this blog…. but that’s not because we haven’t been busy. We have been beyond busy.

Here’s a couple of sneak peaks into some of the projects we have been working on:

Initiative to develop cheap gaming controllers for people with limited fine motor skills (a Collaboration with Chrissy):

The Unseen machine has been doing the rounds and Zac has been killing it in his studio sessions:

We’ve also been developing some new photography and art programs in preparation for launch early next year (if we survive this one).

So stay tuned, drop us a line, and get busy being creative. 🙂

Make and Play

We’ve been having a lot of fun lately messing around with sticks, paper, wire, and goop. We’ve been building mobiles, jewelry, and pocket objects (nice little things to keep in your pocket and occasionally remind yourself that life is meant to be fun). We’re busy testing out techniques and coming up with some new products and workshops.

Stay tuned.

Hello 2014

Wow, what a year.

The end of 2013 was crazy busy with all sorts of fun stuff keeping us occupied. We shared a solo exhibition, got some more of our work out in galleries, sold most of our stock at the markets, found some new creative inspirations, and then finally got to chill with out with family on Xmas and New Years.

Xmas was very creative this year as we decided to make all of our gifts. Here are a couple of portraits painted for the younger family members:

In other news, that I am sure you will here more about over at Windress Emporium, Rachael has been busy schmoozing her way around the Brisbane gallery scene and has signed a contract with C Gallery.

2014 promises to be a huge year with Rachael producing and exhibition a lot more work and Anthony making some moves in the software and creative industries. Stay tuned.
