Took about 25 minutes to make the robot and film. The robot was a cutout from, who encourages this kind of thing. The propellant is one of those gas dusters.

Oh yeah, that’s art.

I worked with a girl in an office job and we never did much of anything but annoy the neighbors and throw paper airplanes, not to avoid work, but there wasn’t much to do. I still work for the same company, but a different department which is too busy for mayhem.

No name, okay? Thanks

AWftWP: You wouldn’t believe how hard it has been to get this post up. I have to thank the author for all the effort, which in this case go well beyond the obvious.

Other than that I would like to comment on the wonderful launch pit that the cubicle walls make. I am sure whichever twisted mind first thought of those evil contraptions that surround and isolate so many people on a daily basis, could have never imagined this. Yet another great example of people prevailing on their fight over that explosive mix of stupidity and authority that in this case lead to those walls. Pure genius.

I came across your site, its great!

I have an addition: this is commando. From a bag of 50 army men, this was the only one in that pose. Firstly, I drew camoflage on him with a permanent marker. Then over time, commando’s image improved. A rambo-esq headband, some war medals, night vision goggles, etc. Then came the accessories – metal detecting gear, a parachute, a rocket launcher, a tank… The tank took a few hours, made out of cardboard and pen lids.

This is not just my creation, my mate got into it as well. As you could imagine, we were fairly bored at work…

AWftWP: Australia strikes back. And how! Today’s post tells us about how boredom can lead to creativity – nothing unusual. But it also tells us of that next step of using your creations to have fun with. Tomorrow we will have another great example of this with what will be our first (and hopefully not last) video. Play on!

Today, no email: It has taken way longer than originally promised, and I have to apologise for that. Still, I’m sure you will agree with me that it was something worth waiting for. Without further presentations, here it is for your eyes only:

AWftWP: A tip, letter H is the company where all this talent goes wasted.

From the email:

I worked at a large internet company for a while and one of my employees ( drew stickies of me every few days and stuck them on the sides of my monitor.

The company is still in business, but not nearly at the capacity it once was. It was a fun place to work for a little more than half of the time I was there (first half was good, second half started to get bad). Both myself and Jon were laid off (with about a year or two between hatchet dates), yet the other day we still had drinks at the old bar.



AWftWP: At this point I had to check the story, so following the link provided and searching a bit I found an email address for the maestro himself. Here’s what he had to say about this matter:

Ha! I haven’t thought about those sketches in forever.

Let’s see, Dave and I went to high school together, and we ended up working at the same place. Dave’s ability to suffer gracefully was always his most charming trait, and my ability to be an utter ass was probably mine. So I used to leave those sketches on his monitor whenever he was outside for a cigarette, just for his chagrined grin when he came back in.

Just about all of them had some root in reality, and what appears to be the weirdest one – where Dave is juggling small dogs – well, Dave’s a juggler and his girlfriend at the time had a chihuahua.

Dave and I have since left that company, although we still get together for a drink and a game of pool. I’ll have to remember to leave a post-it note on his cue next time …

AWftWP: And yet another piece that counts with the boss’ blessings. I guess not all workplaces are the same, what can I say…

Another bored at work art I did at microsoft.

Time to complete: 1 1/2 weeks

When I started a new job there was only one computer between two employees because the department was brand new and being developed. While my co-worker did his job, I doodled on the dry erase board installed in every cubicle. These photos were taken by my boss when I was done. Note: The knotwork circle is one line that wraps around itself continuously. It’s hard to draw knotwork with a dry erase board pen!

AWftWP: I can’t decide what I like better, the week and a half at Microsoft waiting for a computer, or the fact that it was your boss who took the picture. Priceless!
