My new obsession is buying fonts for my new Adana 3-5 printing press, what a dream!!
I haven't actually attempted to use it yet because I haven't got all the gubbins you need to hold the text in the.... chase(!?!). But once I'm up and running I'm going to be able to do lovely, lovely letterpress which I'm really excited about.
I've become a bit obsessed with machinery ever since I started watching 'How Its Made' on Quest, which is one of the channels near Babestation. Look out for it, its much more gripping than slutty girls, promise. Plus there are some second-to-none puns which are worth watching out for.
I've been working on a few projects recently, Including a bit of printing of some illustrations I did a while ago. I finally got round to printing them for a sale I did at the end of the year. Now I've decided to start up an etsy shop to sell my prints on. Its a bit baron at the moment so I'm going to spend the next few weeks working on some new stuff to sell.
