Moving Right Along

I finished the colouring on all nine Mixed Messages III prints this week. Here they are stacked (on the left) in the map case next to Mixed Messages I.

I will be posting the full set of prints on Instagram starting tomorrow, but here are the first three to give you an idea.

There will be a Mixed Messages IV. (I don’t know if I will continue the series after that. It remains to be seen how much I continue to enjoy the process of creating these.)

Here is the base print design.

I have also started work on my book for Rings.

The original plan was to create a binding using O-rings, but Covid Delta Variant numbers are high here, and since I have a large supply of hair elastics —David purchased them and then didn’t like them— I will use some of those and avoid an unnecessary trip to a store.

I have also collected various packages of wooden picks which can be used with the elastics.

There will be more about the project next week.


If you would like to make a little Hallowe’en-themed card, you might try making the one I posted in October last year.

You can find a printable file and the instructions here.


In other book arts news:

Wearing his Associate Lecturer hat, graphic designer Alistair Hall of we made this has posted an extensive list of design history resources. You can find it here.


Last thing for the week, but definitely not least:

Center for Book Arts in New York City has begun offering in-person classes again, but continues with online instruction as well.

You can find the full listings page here.

    Wow. Good for you. They look so interesting, and probably look even better ‘in person’.

      It’s hard to show the depth of colour properly in quick workbench photos! The paper is quite yellow/cream in real life and the colours more saturated. I will have to shoot some documentary images with decent lighting!
