I’ve decided to print all my own wrapping paper this year, I’ve built up quite a decent collection of lino stamps so hopefully I’ll get a few christmas themed patterns going. Love using brown paper and colourful string to wrap gifts in. Its the first time I’ve ever been this prepared for christmas and got all my presents sorted! I’m a happy bunny.
Yuri Suzuki - Looks Like Music :
Japanese creator Yuri Suzuki to conceive Looks Like Music, an audiovisual installation based on his work Colour Chaser. This consists of a miniature robot which detects and follows a circuit – a black line traced in marker pen – interspersed with coloured reference points that the device translates in sound. The public is invited to actively contribute to the development of the installation in the exhibition space by extending the circuit drawn on paper.
This installation is awesome! Worth having a look. I have been looking at ways to incorporate movement into my work and this was so cool had to share :)
I have been learning to print my own fabric these pass few weeks and its been a massive learning curve. I’ve joined a surface design course who have had 2 and a half years to experiment and perfect the process (and it really is a long process). They have all been lovely and helpful, I’ve had some upsetting trials already where most of my ink washed out due to how many grams of dye I was told to add. Thats right its like learning chemistry as well. Here are the results I documented the first time round, I love the layered affect and can’t wait to sew items for my shop! Please let me know what you think.
Currently working on a new range of products which are inspired by my recent trip to India, you can see pictures from my trip in previous posts.
stay tune for some bright bold patterns and animals. :) Today I’m working on elephants.
Just wanted to show you an awesome website I came across the other day. Called Also run by three designers in Chicago. Their website is amazing you should check it out if you love web design. It is completely animated and some of the best web design I’ve ever seen.
Images are from their website I don’t own any of this artwork.
