Maps II

I’ve been really busy this week, but I’m not sure how much I have to show for it. I’ve printed the first proofs of the three A2 plates I posted about last week, but mainly I’ve been diving in to origami. And that has been causing me to reconsider the J11D project. Images and things are probably going to be a bit thin on the ground until the end of term as all this work is large and requires an A1 folio to cart it about; something London’s public transport isn’t very keen on.

Star wind

For this five week course i’ve been reusing polycarbonate plates i’ve used before. The dry point burr gets squashed by the press after awhile and so the image fades.

In the previous post I detailed the construction of the plate and all the different techniques i put it though. Here are are the resulting prints. All together I managed 10 prints, but you can see the last one is a shadow of it’s former self. Read the rest of this entry »

Magic Squares?

This post will definitely make more sense when i’ve posted last week’s exciting episode.

Getting ideas to stick

I’ve run out of words for J11D so i’ll show you a whole lot of pictures with some comments, including details of the Turkish Map Fold.
