PRINT STUFF Brief To create a range of products including printed material to be sold at York based print fair, Print Stuff. Your products must be made to a professional standard and must represent you as a maker. Rational As a craft fair enthusiast myself, I am very excited to be working with my friends as part of the collective, OK Sure, to run a table at this years Print Stuff. I have never had an experience like this before so am keen to learn new skills. I want to explore product within many different mediums. I want to work with digital print, traditional print and ceramics to produce a range of outcomes that explore my running theme of Still Life within the context of products. I am keen to produce some exciting packaging for my merchandise. This will make my stall look more professional and add quality to the items.
I am very pleased with the range of outcomes that I have created for the print fair. I feel that I have been successful in producing merchandise that represents me as an illustrator, while being attractive to a range of other customers. I have treated this brief as a continuation of my still life project, In doing this I have been able to use up sketchbook material that may have otherwise been brushed to the side. This has allowed me to explore a new platforms on which my work could be seen. My ceramic experiments were my most successful sellers at the fair for me, especially my mini Mount Fujiâ€™s. This has shown me that three dimensional objects are the most appealing to customers due to their tactile quality. I am extremely pleased to have learnt the new skill of textile printing through this process. I have hand printed my T shirts, adding an extra quality to the product. This is a process that I hope to continue to use in future projects.
