Tuesday, 27 October 2009


On Monday the 26th the third years went to Burnham-on-Sea for the afternoon.

We went along for the trip. I'd never been, but I'm sure I'd go again.

We had fish & chips and donuts. A bit of this and that. I kept my eye out for a suit.

Geting to Burnham:
Catch a train to Highbury and walk in the direction of the sea.

Sea Line

We went to Cardiff to help out our friend and colleague Jez. We drew a three mile line though the city to link the Bay with the University. It was quite a long day.

After the line was drawn, Jez took us to some beaches.

We went to find some dinosaur footprints.

Above is a footprint.

The day was good, but very long. I hadn't had much sleep the night before and the walking line was a lot further than I thought it would be. Saying that though, it was good to help Jez out. He's got an exhibition in Cardiff very soon.

Exhibition is at Cardiff university,
school of optometry and vision sciences.

Opening Friday 30th October 6pm - Auction (The main event)
Friday 13th November

On another note, I'm setting up a new blog, Fine Young Fellows, for purely junior fellow related stuff. It'll be up sometime very soon.

Fire Hose Gallery - It's on the way.

This is Us

We spent the day in the photography studio taking nice photos of our work.
We thought it might be good to have a nice photo of us both.

Where We Work

It's been cold outside and warm inside.

A little more London

St Brides type library & Poster 4 Tomorrow workshop.

Today Dylan and I ran a workshop to come up with ideas for Poster 4 Tomorrow. The Brief is all about freedom of speech in oppressive regimes. You can have a look here. There was a really good turnout to the workshop and some interesting ideas raised. We hope that the students will develop their work further and enter.

The other day we went to London to visit the St Bride type library. We had a fantastic talk from Nigel Roche about the history of typography and printing. It was amazing to see someone so passionate and knowledgeable about their subject speak. He didn't miss a beat. I loved it.

We also visited the Anish Kapoor exhibition at the Royal Academy. Personally, I enjoyed the cannon... quite a lot.

Olie and Balloon

Fire Hose Reel

The university has removed all of the fire hose reels from the campus. This leaves a lot of nicely sized white cupboards. There are two on the Graphic's floor. We've spent a while doing one of them up, it was in pretty bad nick before we started, but now it looks clean and smart, like a good suit.

We're going to open it up as a gallery, for students to display work in. Opening dates TBC.
