Munch and twigs final pieces (from sketchbook)

March 27, 2010

 We handed in our final pieces and research on the 16th of March for assessment. Rachel took all our printed work and we also sent her the jpeg versions, so these are just a few pics from my sketch book of the final work for now…

Above was my favourite game board. I think it was because of the colourful, bright friendly squares of colour and images. Yet all around the edge of the colourful squares, the design is quite clean and simple. Also there wasn’t the need for a lot of type, so there was easily enough clear space for the needed sewn type.

I created 6 final pieces in total, so 6 board games. Rachel seemed to really like them but her main criticism was the screen printed, stencil like type that I used on 2 of the games (luckily only 2!!!!). I was worried at the time that Rachel wouldn’t like but it is best to experiment and it is also extremley difficult to sew small font, especially in some of the really confined spaces I had to work in. However I will sew this type on a seperate piece of canvas and scan it in to change on the 2 games in the near future.

I created 3 finger puppets for the project. I wanted to try my own ones from being inspired by Soju’s finger puppets that I saw in the Okido Pop-up shop. 2 of them are felt the other one is screen printed.

Creating the game boards

March 17, 2010

 Here are a few pictures of the creation of the sewing part of the game boards. In total I created 6 boards all hand sewn and then screen printed different parts to feature on the games.

We had to create the page to 20x20cm to fit on an Okido magazine page. So I cut the canvas just a little bigger than this just for the edges and I ironed all of the pieces of canvas before starting to sew.

The hardest part was sewing some of the smaller writing that had to go in the shapes or in small spaces. It was very difficult to get it small but to still look clear.

I also created a few finger puppets. More pictures of these to come later…
