Country Show

country show

Yee haw!

Coming your way real soon, with a chook raffle that has the best chooky prizes you've *ever* seen (all proceeds to the RSPCA), an open- entry cake competition, and lots of good country art.

Poster made by me from wholesome chunks of wood type and metal type with a slick of rubber stamping. Printed on a Vandercook SP-20 press. Posters will be sold at the show.

Oh -- there are two versions of this poster. This one is called 'Woodchop'; the other is in pinks and turquoisey blues and is called 'Fairy Floss'. Each is printed in an edition of 10.

(This is what I did with my school holidays. It was printed on Miss Kitty, my 'new' press, and she did really well for her 'first' run.)

(This is also proof that undies-damaged wood type can still be used to good effect :))

Hi Speedy!

Posters are $50 each, available by emailing the School of Art Gallery:
sofagallery[ahem]anu.edu.au

I guess they'd charge you postage etc... I think they'll sell well, so I can't promise more than that if they don't, I'll sell you one afterwards and we can negotiate a price!

But... there is a one-colour (brown) splash poster printed in wood type on blue paper with less detail, and I can send you one of those for just the cost of postage -- what do you reckon? That goes for anyone else too, within reason!

Email me offline if you're interested.

Rats in a bag: It's the exact same time that I shall be busy interning at the Re-Loved 2 fashion parade at Craft ACT :-(

(Word verification is Monvexo. Rather apt, I thought...)

Reminds me of the time here in California when my husband and I were going to watch an Australian movie. A friend, who is originally from Alice Springs, helpfully provided us with a vocabulary list pre-viewing so we'd be able to understand what was going on. Top item was chook.
