Jiraffeshop is now online!

I now have an online store where I'm selling prints and zines. Take a look and see if there's something you fancy!

For England Zine

Here's a few pages from my zine 'For England' that I was selling at the London Zine Symposium. I managed to sell a few copies but I still have loads left so I'm currently in the process of setting up an online store!

You can now purchase an A2 print of my 'In Fabio We Trust' poster also.

Here are a few snaps of the zine! If you wanna see more, you'll have to buy it!

Fabio 2.0...

I've just had 5 of these printed up to sell at the Zine Symposium tomorrow (if the printers are open so I can collect them!).

If not I'll be selling them at 'Checkout' in Bristol and I'm thinking of setting up an online store to sell the posters and maybe the zines too if they prove to be popular. Here's hoping!

You can now buy this print online at my shop!

Finishing touches to 'For England'

I've been working flat out for the last 2 days getting my zine ready for the London Zine Symposium tomorrow. I've gone and block printed the England badge shape onto the front of my zines to make them a little more special edition.

Originally I wanted type included with it but I was running out of time and that would have been seriously fiddly!

We're all very excited for tomorrow and I shall have my work in 3 zines! Can't wait.

WSA_D posters

It's 4am. I've wrapped for tonight! Printing tomorrow and then all this assessment malarky is over! However, I'll be busy again a few days after preparing for the London Zine Symposium.

I've found some time to show you some pics of the posters which I'm very pleased the way turned out. Took on board some stuff from my crits and these are near enough what will be out there. May change the paper stock.

Finishing off this at the moment...

Still a work in progress and I know the image is small but I felt like giving you a sneak peek! Taken a few things on board from my crit, so I'm just going back into the posters and adjusting a few things. I'm seeing some improvements already.

A1 tests

Just testing some some stuff at A1 to see how my type looks at that size. It's looking good so far, found a few issues I might have to address with scaling some of the graphics but I'm happy with how it's looking at it's true size.

Now... back to work!

Quick update...

I've been cutting shapes out of lino so I can make type. The idea is that the type is interchangeable and the characters are never the same twice so each character takes on it's own identity.

I'm really liking how the prints are looking, I love the degrading you get from printing. I'm going for an architecture vs nature vibe with these shapes so I feel this textural aesthetic gets that across.
