University of Texas Lab 102m rewrite

All 11 labs were recorded and you can see them on YouTube here. Here is the list:

All new consistently styled figures were created for my rewrite of the lab manual for the class I was head TA for. Figures were primarily designed in Blender with a shared theme and an automatic renderer that could produce all figures at once from sources. A few TiKZ figures and Inkscape figures were included, as well, when appropriate. The TiKZ and Inkscape Verneer caliper figure was written as a LaTeX function, with opening amount as a parameter, and optional explanations, and was also used in tests. Here is a sampling of figures. Some figures were featured as animations in the video series, with new styling to match the video theme. One image chosen from each of the 11 labs.

Angelo State University Modern lab manual rewrite

I helped with the modern lab rewrite as an undergraduate, including supplying many of the figures. May add them here someday if I find them.

Other (personal)

Some images:

  • Martia Lisa - A project for an introductory art class as an undergraduate.
  • Rosco plays racquetball - Old image for a Racquetball club. I made a better version at one point that had a white background that was used as a poster.
  • Cave dragon - A dragon in a cave.

And, some videos:

  • Live wavelet encoding - Used in a talk to demonstrate wavelet encoding on a video. Used a clip from Brothers of the Force.
  • Brothers of the force - Two brothers find something incredible. A homemade Star Wars inspired mini-film that I made as an undergraduate with my family.
