PLAY – ring

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



It’s totally handmade. From the carving, to the mold making, to the shaping.

Here’s the process:

I carved the positive out of niupika carving wax (pictured above, in blue). 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 by mistake. Then I created a mold using Polycraft GP-3481-F silcone rubber. This also took a few tries because I had 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 to you, it’s these little blemishes that make each object unique.

If you like this idea as much as I do and want one, email me. I can pour you one and shape it to your size (in mm). They’re £10, shipping included.

FluCoMa logo and video bumper

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.

…And I made their logo and video bumper!

(I will update this post with an example of a video that uses the bumper once one is up.)

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.)

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.

But I Guess, In The End, We Just Moved Furniture Around (Video Version)

This is a collaboration with David Pocknee and Richard Craig. It’s definitely David’s piece but he invited us into the compositional process with him. We met several times over the span of two years to come up with what this work ultimately became. It was just a lot of trying things out; a lot of looking at stuff and a lot of moving stuff around. David is good at combinations. I just love him. We You can find the score here (on David’s website).

Every Me and Every You

1. An essay like this works best if we’re all good-looking (reader, writer, critic). This helps with attraction.

2. I am unapologetically shallow.

3. No one ever learns anything, and you won’t learn anything here.

Not the Rodrigo Constanzo Story

My new comic is ready to be held by your delicate reader hands. I did the artwork and my partner Rodrigo Constanzo wrote the script. We didn’t give it a title, but it’s NOT called The Rodrigo Constanzo Story. It’s 32 laser printed pages on really thick, nice quality paper. 

Below, you can find the online version. If you enjoy it, treat yourself to a physical copy. It’ll come with a few stickers and Rod’s fantastic mac n’ cheese recipe on the back cover! Or if you don’t want a physical copy but still want to support this comic-making behavior, you can make a donation via paypal to angela.guyton@gmail.com (it would be much appreciated :) )
 
 
 
 
 

How do I get a copy?

Paypal the correct amount (given your geographic region) to:
angela.guyton@gmail.com
Make sure you give me your mailing address too!!
When you send payment write your address in the notes section.

 
£5 …….. If you live in the UK and you’re going to see Rod in person. (you can pay him in cash.)
 
£6.50 …….. If you want it mailed to you and you live in Europe or the UK
 
$9 …….. If you live in the New World (North & South America). It’s the postage that pushes this up–I’m so sorry! I just want to make five bucks for something that took me a crazy amount of time to make! Like, seriously, crazy. But yes, shipping is included in this price, and it’s coming to you out of either Manchester, England or Porto, Portugal (Basically wherever it is I’ve stashed them at the time you order).

 

And here’s the online version. Enjoy!

The Me That No One Sees

“…and what you’re shown is profound. Justin Timberlake’s Cry Me A River isn’t something we were prepared for in 2002. And since then, the methods used in creating such a sophisticated work have only improved.

Wasn’t it just a music video though?”

(Thanks to Ray Evanoff for giving my weird as fuck article a home, and to Rod for his amazing skills as an editor.)
