Pataphysical Time Travel
Image by fabola
The good doctors at Pataphysical Studios gathered at Dr. Rindbrain and Dr. Judy’s home on a rainy Saturday to contemplate the passage of time and make art about it.
We celebrated Dr. Skidz’ 70th birthday in style, with small gifts ranging from an illuminated tie to an antique telephone, hearty spirits, a nice chocolate cake and stock in the Mind Shaft Society.
We then discussed our first sketches and models for the Time Machine — and sketched out more ideas about our next pataphysical invention.
We enjoyed this opportunity to cheer our old friend and design our upcoming time travel experience together.
Fire in the hole!
