typeface a week #34

Chris Macfarlane, a Glasgow based artist has joined in with the Typeface a week (#TFAW) project with his "Black Tie" font - made from plastic ties...excellent! - experimental and inventive, the very spirit of what we're looking for in the project!

We're also applying to the RSA for some financial support to get a residency in Peacock Visual Arts so we can really pull out the stops and create a wonderful "end product" - the limited edition Disc & artwork... exciting!

Tea Cosy photos

I had a fantastic time at the SMart consultants / Grampian Hospitals Art Trust "Tea Cosy" - contemporary art and craft fair this weekend.
I showcased 8 new card designs, my new tea towels (separate posts coming soon!) and lots of new Small Stories jewellery.
Thanks to everyone that came, it was a brilliant turn out, and I've met a lot of new people interested in my work, fantastic.
