In New Zealand we have many beautiful black sand beaches, one of which I visited the other day to collect some black sand for todays design. It’s made using the sand and a magnet. I’ve also taken a video of process, which I like much more than this photograph, as it shows the tiny grains of sand spiking up and moving around, almost like an animation, which I hope to post up at a later date. This was a bit of an experiment, but I’d like to experiment more in the future using this process.
A couple of months ago my Grandma moved into a rest home, and while helping to clean out her house I found one of her old recipe books being thrown away. I saved it and found this Christmas Cake recipe with a blank page beside it, so thought I’d use this for todays design – a recipe of the date called ‘Daily Surprise’.
Today is Universal Children’s Day, so I decided to reuse a drawing I did when I was a child (6 years old), which I found recently while moving. It was the numbers 1-10 drawn as birds. It’s slightly photoshopped, but I love how I was obviously into typography even then!
