A bored Friday made more interesting by a ‘hey I’ll sketch anyone who RTs’ tweet. I get to practise pace, and people get a bit of joy out of their assumably, equally boring Friday on twitter.
The best camera is the one you have on you. Words can not express how much I am enjoying having a phone with a camera. I’ve even given in to instagram and its cheesy filters. And I see pictures everywhere it’s a bit mad - before I had to just ignore them which must have been hard for my.. I don’t know.
I’ve never been a paperfolder, but never has got to end at some point.
I’ve also never gotten the point of concertinas (what are they??), but allow me to indulge and quote myself: “never has got to end at some point”.
So here you have it. A folded concertina full of cranes and lines.. And it’s surprisingly fun to flip through so maybe that is the true point of concertinas who knows.
These weeks have just been insane.
I’m loving the buzz at uni, and staying till late and all - but right now, all I can think of is more than 4 hours of sleep. TOMORROW it’s going to happen - handing in our 100 outcomes. Realised that I’m missing ten so I quickly did some patterns. When late, always do patterns.
We really are! This studio visit was great!
It’s Nice That studio visit
We are the luckiest students in the world for having these opportunities to meet such amazing people during our course! It was one of the most inspirational useful meeting I’ve ever had in my life! These people work harder than I thought.They started from the simplest stage to build their studio and I have to say I’m so proud to have this chance to meet them and listen to their stories. Very inspirational relaxing evening at It’s Nice That studio. They also gave us one of the magazine that they’ve published which is very nice of them :)
Remember those bird-shapes I had the other day?
I spent this afternoon riso-printing them. Wasn’t sure how it was going to work out as it was a bit of a gamble creating something 3D out of two layers. The way a risograph printer works is much like screen printing - only faster and bitmapped. It makes a stencil of your black and white image and prints it in whatever colour is on the cartridge roll - which you then change and print a different coloured layer on top. Quite pleased with the outcome, conceptually it’s been through a nice process: from cut out pieces of papers, to photographs, to drawings and eventually to print.
And I should try and focus on something new, I’m falling in love with the riso to the point where I want to test so many things on it instead of doing coursework..
A very arts and crafty evening. Got to use my blow pens just like when I was five. For those of you who are wondering - blowpens are like DIY grafitti pens for kids - you blow in them and get the Windows 95’ paint spraytool effect. Anyway.. Still trying to push for those hundred outcomes with the theme ‘THE CITY’.
So now I’ve got these shapes.. I’ve drawn them based on one model from different angles, and the layers are riso-ready. I just need to figure out what to do with them. Tomorrow I’ll try and play around a bit more, and see what they’d look like combined or on one plane.
