WELCOME  TO  BVS


We all have creative juices coursing through our gray matter. Some of us bottle it up while others sink their teeth into a project.  Brain Venom Studio is a place where I post about my projects. From graphics  to props and cosplay, I’ll be blogging the details  and insights behind my favorite projects, including DIY tips on the materials, tools and processes I use. I’ve been a Maker for over a decade, meaning there’s a lot to back log (backblog). I’ll be mixing in past projects and current undertakings to cover a wide range of subjects. So grab a scalpel and let’s pick my brain!

MAKE.  LEARN.  SHARE

Welcome to Brain Venom Studio! Everyone needs a creative outlet. We are all makers of some kind and, regardless of the objective quality, making something you’re proud of feels good. 

 I like to dabble in almost every kind of making, from electronics and knitting to woodwork and lost-wax casting.

I’m a jack of all trades and master of none, so while I can’t offer much in the way of top-notch expertise, I can provide links to the information I used for my crash course into each subject. I’ll let you know what brick walls and pitfalls I found and do my best to help you avoid them.

It seems a shame how much knowledge goes unshared becauses it’s difficult to find the audience or because it’s so time consuming to explain. This blog is my effort to share what I know. I hope it’s helpful, inspiring or interesting. Follow me on social media  and good luck on whatever projects you’re taking a bite out of.
