Josie and I collaborated on a sign for the party. Those hearts are something, no? She also got a lesson on exclamation marks.
I didn’t have time to properly photograph it, which I regret.
But it is out in the world now. I’m so pleased! I hope Alissa and Paul love it, most of all.
I’m working on a collaborative commission from+with Hannah Ensor. I’m making a book, and using this as an excuse to make something beautiful. With watercolor flowers. Suck it, (conceptual) art school! I’m not embarrassed, even a little bit.
That was a little bit rude. I’m really just having a lovely time. I love love. (This is a gift for two people getting married.)
As a Book Art Collective member in collaboration with the UA Poetry Center, I made a broadside of a poem by MFA student Hannah Ensor. There will be a poetry reading on Thursday at 7pm at the Poetry Center. Come! You’ll see me and Hannah and a whole bunch of letterpress broadsides.
Originally I had planned on incorporating more imagery (possibly via linocut), but as I set the type it made more sense to keep it super clean with full attention on the text. It really is a wonderful text, and it is about defying expectation and not knowing, so I think it would have been missing the point to clutter it up with figurative imagery.
I find a lot of joy in setting type.
Hope you all are well. xxoo
I’m setting type for a collaborative piece with Geoffrey.
I have a lot to think about; there are a lot of issues that still need to be experimented with and resolved.
