Read MAKE magazine: Volume 32Down a dusty road in the eggs-and-butter town of Petaluma, Calif., sits a big, handmade pink Victorian complete with chicken coop, storage containers, vintage cars, and Shawn Thorsson’s badass workshop, where he brings characters from tabletop games, video games, and the occasional movie to life. Check out the profile interview, along with a catalog of 16 of his amazing costumes, and a workshop spread with tool callouts in the new issue of MAKE, Volume 32.

And check out this slideshow to step inside Thorsson’s workshop for a closer look:

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
