We got lots done today for the Thirteen Degrees show. We got the acrylic postcard holder prototype cut and then re-jigged so that it fitted together really snug without glue. I tried the chloroform solvent with one of the first attempts, and while it was done neatly it wasn’t as seamless as we wanted.
Andy and I decided that the logo looked better as an outline rather than etched completely. The one I’m holding is the one I glued and the ones on the red table are the final ones.
We also got a proof batch of postcards printed - those are Rich’s in the printer, they are awesome.
Tomorrow we’re going to print and cut as much as Steve can do before he runs out of card - spookily we need the whole job printed thirteen times…
Series of posters I made throughout the year to advertise the visiting lecturers
We have a site set up for our little exhibition in Bath, you should have a look and then come to it. It’s from the 18th - 24th June at the 44AD space, Old Pet Shop in town. There will be design, photography and illustration.
There are thirteen of us, and hopefully we will all get a degree, so we’ve called it thirteen°
I’ve been watching a lot of Parks and Recreation. I want to make posters from Ron Swanson’s Swanson Pyramid of Greatness.

This will soon be a portrait of Kate Bush.
Photos of the Clean Dirt book. It was a bit hard to take photos of because it’s pretty long. It’s hand bound concertina/French fold with the spine sewn up. The text is a poem called Clean Dirt by August Arps
deep in the clean loamy. in the dark froth of top soil and odd moss - deep
in the tendrils of microscopic cosmologies; fecund and rampant with life -
the long reed holding the wind’s note in it’s throat
in the failing light, beneath the canopies…
you’re gasping. you gasp
at the habit of
and the little things, teeming
in the underneath.
where gnashing teeth are dead leaves.
and yellow is origami
in the dappling
of the sun.
and the peace.
This is my little A6 Astrosnorts zine about the men who have walked on the moon and their noses
gif from first year
I got vinyl labels cut using one of the museum typefaces - these are the folders for the Clean Dirt book and the Astrosnorts zine thing. I think these were my favourite projects.
