Play!

I’ve never liked wearing rings. 
But recently, I really wanted to make one in this style out of pink plastic (resin, really)–so here it is! And I kinda absolutely love it.

It’s handmade at each step of the process. From the carving, to the mold making, to the shaping.

Here’s what I did:

I carved the positive out of niupika carving wax. It took me a few tries to understand just what tools I needed to use, and how slowly I needed to go to not crack the surface or remove too much wax by mistake. Then I created a mold using Polycraft GP-3481-F silcone rubber. I’ve done this before (here and here) but it always takes me a few tries to figure out how to minimize bubbles, and also how to best bisect the mold to minimize the occurrence of registration errors. Then I cast a few using polytek easyflo 60 resin, that I tinted pink. 

Each one has it’s own little errors. But as The Narrator in Fight Club (Edward Norton) explained, it’s these little blemishes that can form your whole identity if you’re not a jerk. That was the message of the movie, wasn’t it?

Anyway, selling bits of pink plastic garbage seems like a coherent idea to me, so if you want one email me. I can pour you one and shape it to your size (which you can give me in mm). They’re £10 and shipping is included.

FluCoMa logo and video bumper

I’ve made the logo and video bumper for FluCoMa

What is FluCoMa?
The Fluid Corpus Manipulation project (FluCoMA) instigates new musical ways of exploiting ever-growing banks of sound and gestures within the digital composition process, by bringing breakthroughs of signal decomposition DSP and machine learning to the toolset of techno-fluent computer composers, creative coders and digital artists.

To create these I:

1) Used Affinity Designer – this was the first time I made something for someone else using vectors. I normally draw using traditional media (and I’ll occasionally color using Photoshop)
2) Created and filmed many different types of ink behavior, on paper and in water
3) Revisited my aviglitch library scripts from when I made Its Fleece Electrostatic, to create the glitch effects found in the video bumper
4) Used Final Cut to animate the different elements of the logo for the bumper
5) And of course just sketched a lot using pencil and paper to get initial ideas down, or to try to change the direction of the design. 

Here are some key moments in the logo’s evolution (Though it wasn’t exactly as linear as this and I’ve left out some things.)

Wet Ink: 20

Vaqería
a digital release album by Mauricio Pauly and Richard Knight
Porto has several places where you can get old comics. While making the art for this album I was looking at a few old books that I’ve bought so far while here: a western themed one, a Fantasma Especial (that has great colors!), and one that isn’t an old comic but is grounded in that aesthetic, Samplerman . The music on Vaquería is absurd and fun about esoteric stuff (I think). Listen, this all goes together.

Study for three figures at the base of the internet

An homage/an update to Francis Bacon’s Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion. I drew this the day after the Marjory Stoneman Douglass school shooting, which took place on Valentines Day 2018.
