gocco print xmas

A late post of my quick little eskimo design xmas cards. I printed them up using my Print Gocco, a sort of simplified screen-printing machine. Sadly, the burgundy ink refused to print as cleanly and neatly as the lovely orange red, so I had to switch to brown instead. Still, it was a lesson for next year, think I'll just use the one colour and one screen. Hmmmm.

Sounds like 2009

Just a few tunes I've been listening on my Spotify playlist while I doodle.
It has Fever Ray, St.Vincent, The XX, Wild Beasts, Dirty Projectors, The Whitest Boy Alive, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Neko Case, Bat for Lashes, Dinosaur Jr and Phoenix for starters :)


Stockholm based clothing brand Monki sure have some sweet styles. Wish that I lived in Sweden so I could pick up a few of their pieces. Discovered via Berlin-based style
blog Stil in Berlin.

Spent a happy afternoon off work at the V&A and Natural History Museum (previous post). Here are my blurry pictures from the Japan and China and Silver rooms of the former.

Here's a music video made by the film's director Wong Kar Wai using footage from the film. The song is "Be My Baby" by The Ronettes.

Architectural punchbowl

Extraordinary jelly-sculptors Bompas and Parr (previous post) are also organising the creation of a punchbowl so big you could row a boat across it for London's Architectural Punchbowl (via Spoonfed.
"The Architectural Punchbowl will contain over 4,000 litres of a brand new cocktail featuring Courvoisier’s exclusive mixing cognac Exclusif."

Architectural Punchbowl at 33 Portland Place, London w1.
8th-10th December.

Architectural jelly

Amazing sculptural and glow in the dark jellies from Bompas and Parr.
In their own words:
"Bompas & Parr creates fine English jellies, designs bespoke jelly moulds and curates spectacular culinary events.

The work of Bompas & Parr operates in the space between food and architecture. Our projects explore how the taste of food is altered through synaesthesia, performance and setting. Currently the focus of our research is jelly: jelly is the perfect site for an examination of food and architecture due to its uniquely plastic form and the historic role it has played in exploring notions of taste."

Down with cake! Long live the jelly!

A few snaps from my short break in Krakow last week. The Natural History museum, the salt mines, the camps at Auschwitz and the city.
