Broad: Publication


For the printing I used A2 paper folded in half and printed in black first.]

I actually found some problems printing like this because the printer kept getting jammed. I decided to use tape to hold down every side, which was tedious but worked out.

After printing the black then I printed out the drawings in a different colour on top.


Broad: GIF

For this project as well as an 8 page publication, we also had to make a GIF that represented the whole publication.

I decided that for the GIF I should incorporate the 3 chosen words and then the 6 drawn images, 2 for each word. It was too busy to have everything show up together, so I split it so that you can see what drawing goes with what.


Broad: Riso-Printing 2

We had another Risoprint session, but this time we learnt about colour separation and how we could make fuller pictures even with a limited supply of colours.

We were asked to bring in a photo and then on Photoshop we split up the colours.


As there was not much time for all of us to print doing CMYK colour separation, we tried out duotone instead, where we made it grayscale – duotone. We then split into pairs and printed with 2 colours.


Broad: Research

For Broad I researched some publications that I liked and found out that the ones I liked the most were those that used text with drawings or illustrations included. I felt like this fit in well with the blog post that I had chosen, because it had drawings in there as well.

After taking a photo of the drawings, I digitalised them, turned the backgrounds white and split them up, since there were 2 drawings each for the 3 words.

I also wanted to include the other drawings that weren’t chosen for the final posters, to show the various different descriptions people gave.


Walk the Line: Final Posters


After finally fixing the font and getting it on the computer, I typed out what my posters originally said and placed them around. I still wanted to sew the middle sections so I left those blank and then sent off the text to be printed.


I think this is much better, because the text looks neater, but you can still see the sewn aspects of the letters.

Walk the Line: Poster Development


Going back to my posters for the Walk the Line project, I needed to change the font. Originally I sewed the letters straight on, but it was suggested that they could be neatened up a bit.

So I searched online for a font I liked and found one called Hyperspace, because it is quite square and straight, which would be easy for me to sew. I printed out the alphabet and sewed two versions; one with the thicker wool I had and one with the thin thread.

I put these into an online converter so that I could use them digitally. The thin thread was quite hard to tell that it was thread, so I decided to go for the thicker one.
