Designers Block?

The answer to designers block lies in Keemun tea, maybe its the polyphenols or possibly some sort of black magic from the orient, but this stuff always works! I like to think of it as designers tea. Drink up.

Epson 1520

I've used my Epson 1520 for about 3 or 4 years, it's an ancient A2 plotter, it's a workhorse of a machine, which I initially bought while at uni for about £200, I figured it was more economical than buying prints every time i wanted something printing, I also figured if it's mine I can do whatever i want with it, which led to lots of experimentation. 

He's a temperamental printer, an old man who's really slow, but on a good day can actually be outstanding. The inks are around £2 each which is one of the best things, most A2 printers these days have about 8 separate cartridges which are about 15quid each! It back loads and i've put 350gsm through.
That's about it, get one if you want a cheap A2 printer which is economically great. You can pick them up on ebay, there always seems to be one up for sale.

The Drums

From Brooklyn NY, I can't help but like this, the lead singer Jonathan Pierce reminds me of the late Mark Speight.

Mark Kozelek will go down as one of the greatest american musicians of all time, his back catalogue is truly astonishing. A day doesn't go by without some kozelek passing through my speakers. Pick up anything by Sun Kil Moon, or the red house painters, I'd recommend Ghosts Of The Great Highway, but his Tiny Cities album of modest mouse covers is pretty much perfect.

Daisies of the Galaxy

10 Years after it's release this is still one of the most perfect albums ever made.
A testament to Everett and his song writing ability. If you don't own it, get it.
I have the original cardboard case version, I love the Kate Greenaway inspired illustrations.

Site Launch

So it's been a few months but my new site is finally up!! it's actually been down for almost 2 years, which in retrospect is a huge hole of time, but I have been busy!

I'm hoping that the site will keep evolving, with new projects and ideas.
I thought i'd post a few of my favourite pieces from the site because I can, its my blog.

Early June Launch

Today began with a 6am run through beaumont park then a few cups of tea and coffee!
I also set up a small photo my desk which will be on my site when it launches and also my flickr! The images are part of a new process page on my site, which is kind of a behind the scenes look at my day to day. I'd post a sneak peak but i've literally just finished tidying the subsequent fall out.

I will be Launching my site this weekend! I've said saturday but I might hold off till sunday or monday morning, and make sure all the links are working etc.

have a nice weekend!
