bonjour-bambi asked: NEGATIVE SANDWICHES. are you kidding? those are beautiful!
Thank you! I’m so surprised at how much attention they seem to be getting. I’ve never had so many reblogs on my work. Photography is definitely a new thing for me but maybe I should be experimenting with it more. Thank you again for your kind words!
Postcard Design, Round 2 First Draft
I’m not sure I like the funky digital rainbow colors that pop out here and there. Is it setting the wrong tone? Should I go for more of a painted look?
For the typography, I think I’m going to do a knock-out casade kinda thing on top. We’ll see how that goes…
The Last Delirium, piece the second
Ink on paper, 15x22”
This is the ink drawing that I scrapped from my lyric poster.
The Last Delirium show was completely wonderful. As the show was ending, the three women in Hexagono gathered the women of Graphic Design together and gifted us with their scooter. Then they charged us with the responsibility of passing the scooter down when we graduate, and to uphold GRDN FOR LIFE.
The Last Delirium piece: The Conceit
Here is the first poem:
One, being two bound
Are yet divided?
Are we bound to be broken?
Here is the second poem:
You are the far stranger
Of us two
Here is the conceit:
All of it is a poem
I don’t often make graphic design pieces for fun. But I suppose I’ve also found it harder to divide my design work from my studio art nowadays. This came about from leftover watercolor scans from my Tumorous Wolf, an old poem and a whole lot of tinkering.
I still can’t tell how much I like it, but people do seem to be responding to it.

I can’t wait to see what it looks like when it gets screen printed in a few weeks! Hopefully the grey tones turn out okay.
Ripe & Ruin: Lyric Poster for Design II
I ended up scrapping my ink drawing entirely, and running in another direction. In typical Rachel fashion, I delayed touching the project until the last minute and then pulled an all-nighter to get it done in time. But I think I was able to apply some new concepts to my design: rhythm, restraint, and… something like poetry.
