Bicycles & Alphabets

12 Jun

In a week’s time National Bike week will begin! One and all, let’s take to two wheels and celebrate cycling…

I recently took part in Cardiff’s first PaperGirl project, which involves distributing art at random by bicycle.  Last Friday all submissions were exhibited at the fabulous Printhaus. Collage faces were placed next to lino-prints, next to brief but funny doodles and delicate design. My favourite was a child-like drawing, which showed a farmer yelling from his tractor, ‘Gerr of my land!’ as he headed off to haymake. It was ace to see my piece as part of this dynamic project.

On Saturday 18 June, the submissions will be rolled up and distributed by cyclists all over Cardiff! Keep an eye out if you fancy a creative surprise, and there’s still time to get involved and cycle. CLICK HERE to visit the PaperGirl blog


I’ve been harvesting inspiration and doing doodles in preparation for the animation that Matt & I are working on. I don’t want to say too much yet, but that it’s set in a vegetable garden. I’m keen to have printed type and text as a mechanism for telling the story, so this evening we put ‘typography’ into the Vimeo search box.

Here’s what we found:

and this:

Can’t wait to get making now!
