Dodie Dodo Demonstrates a Dastardly Double-Jump by S.britt.

Here’s my contribution for the second anniversary exhibition of Treeson, created by the mighty talented Bubi Au Yeung: flickr.com/photos/bubi […]
My piece is a six-layered print, my third such experiment using the Print Gocco. Unfortunately, this particular time the Gocco inks printed a bit dark for my liking, so I had to lighten them up a tad in Photoshop. I guess with Gocco, you never really know how they’re gonna turn out until you finish printing the last separation. I think from now on I should stick to prints under three or four colors until I master this new (to me) technology. I’d love to know if anybody’s tried using other types of inks aside from Riso (such as Versatex) and what where their results. I find that the Gocco inks are a bit expensive (for the amount of ink you get) and difficult to mix to create the exact color and opacity I’m looking for.

Running Slowly

Running Slowly by Leah Palmer Preiss, aka Curious Art. I loved it!

According to my trusty 1878 Chambers’s Encyclopedia of Universal Knowledge, “The birds were easily killed, being wholly unable to fly, and running slowly. Their speedy extinction after the islands began to be visited and settled, is thus easily accounted for.”

Maybe it was the shoes?

Wooden Dodo

Muji wooden toys

I saw some pictures of that wooden dodo on Flickr and I was curious to know where all those people were getting the dodos. I’m not sure about all, but MUJI was selling those dodos and the cute wooden animals toys on the session Toys and Children’s Gifts. Too bad I’m late, they are very pretty.
