I go walking

It's my latest papercut piece. I'm rather happy how this turned out, as it was an experiment in using floating frames with paper cutting.

If you are in Vancouver right now, this piece is hanging in the Freaks and Geeks show at the Fall Tattooing and Artist Gallery on Seymour street downtown. The show will be up from April 9th to the 30th. So go check it out. Lots of good things.

ciao for now.

let's ride bikes into the sea

so so so, for a class this semester we had a super duper project where everyone in the class made a zine, and we traded! It was wonderful! And I think it means I'll be making more artist zines in the fuuuture.
Mine is titled Nautical Nonsense and was printed in an edition of 22 using a laser printer and a really basic lithography method called Pronto Plates.

Check out all the neato pictures inside under de

This is a shot of all of the zines tiled together. Like I said there were 22 of them ( think one is missing from this image). The were printed on three different colours of rag paper, and the pages inside were printed on off white for the darker editions and white for the light editions. This shot shows the front and the back of the zines. each was about 2 x 3 inches folded. I love them, I think they are super cute.
that's why i'm uploading the difficult badly designed pattern so that if anyone feels so inclined they can have this zine too! I mean, without the printed cover of course.
These are the stickers that were inside the zine! I used a sewing machine to perforate them apart. I used a recipe for sticker glue I found on instructables.
so these two pages back to back as they are and make up the first page of the zine! They are the box that makes the diorama/zine/shrine, in the versions I made, the tabs we pre glued like the stickers. It's a bit have to get breqative when putting this together and do what you have to to make sure it lines up. It's a bit tricky.
And these are the pieces that go inside! they also have the cryptic instructions!
and wouldn't ya know, it all folds into this:

an important note, you have to make your own hole on the side for the movable wave. Forgot to mention that.
my roommate got creative and coloured hers : )
