A DIY T-Shirt

Nikolaus Gradwohl2011-06-29T06:05:27+00:00

For my Day 29 project of 30DaysOfCreativity I wanted to make something I never made before - so I decided to sew a T-Shirt.


Since I had no clue how to do it, I made a plan


This plan turned out to be a bit naive (very soon) - so I tried another aproach involiving scissors and a sewing machine.

I'm still quite sure not to turn into a tailor any time soon, but the result is far better than anything I hoped for

Ninja vs Pirate - The Movie

Nikolaus Gradwohl2011-06-28T05:53:20+00:00

For my Day28 project I made a stopmotion animation using my ninja from Day4 and my Pirate from Day 7. I spent countless hours animating the figures, removing the needles from the images and making the soundtrack - but I really love the result.

the sword- and fistfighting sounds are created by "Sharp" and downloaded from

the ambient sounds are created by "Axeman" and downloaded from

The images where shot using a Nikon D40x and a tripod, the image processing was done in gimp and the sountrack was edited using ardour.

special thanks to 30DaysOfCreativity for putting "Ninja VS Pirate" on the inspiration calendar :-)
