Here are 4 more posters I designed for the fells in Windham Flat over the past few months.

Further progress with my Flags project. I have figured out a better way of allowing the dowels to dry after painting them: let them hang. Today I finished sanding and double-coating the dowels with black paint. I will next be clear coating them with an flat acrylic spray to protect them a bit more. (The paint I used was interior flat house paint, which seems to cling to dust and smudges quite easily.)

Last week, my amazing friend Ellen McCoy helped me begin the sewing portion of this project. Here she in her home studio stitching straight lines (which I would be terrible at doing).

The last photo is an example of what a pillowcase will look like once a pole has been inserted. Ellen will be sewing the remaining 65 or so pillowcases for me.

PS: The working title for this project, Flags, is just that - a working title. I’m still thinking about what I want to name this series. Perhaps inspiration will strike as I return to the stencil cutting phase of this project.

I love design like this: simple yet intriguing.

I’ve become reinvigorated to begin working on my Flags project once again. Last week, I purchased more ‘flagpoles’, made task lists, started designing the final 20 or so stencils, and tried coming up with a list of galleries I’d like to approach about hosting this series.

Today, I decided I need to create something I could use to allow multiple poles to be painted and dry at the same time. In the end, I used two ‘multi-tool holders’, the box my old Chuck Taylors came in, and two bricks. It works alright for what I’m doing, though sometimes the poles don’t slip in and out of the holders so easily. (I got the holders from the Cole Hardware across the street from my house. It’s an amazing place.)

PS: On a side note, the final version of the coloring book I designed for Rainbow has been released. It’s available at the store, at the Customer Service desk. Come by and get a copy for a child in your life … and one for yourself.

Among all the things I’m currently working on, I am designing a children’s coloring book for Rainbow Grocery. Well, more like a little coloring zine.

A member of the PR Committee asked if I could make something she could give to parents who sign up for the Scrip program (Rainbow donates 10% of all Scrip purchases to the school of one’s choice). She is currently trying to expand the program to include more schools.

She said it could be simple shapes about food. I decided to make something that depicts creatures, ghosts, and robots shopping at Rainbow.

Anyhow, I still have another 7 pages to come up with. I hope everyone likes it.

PS: these are samples of the page layouts. The first image is of the first page (right) and last page (left) of the zine, so that’s why it looks sequentially out of order.

headfirstfordrowninglessons ASKED: MY NAME IS ALSO CODY FROST HI.

I just got this. Is your name REALLY Cody Frost? If so, you are the first woman I’ve ever know of to have the same name, with the same spelling.

This is my desk at home. Though I am still slowly working on my Flags project, I am currently working on the next issue of Point01. This one I hope to produce with color designs and images throughout the zine.

PS: I know that this desk looks like a terror, and that I need to clean it, but this is just how my space ends up. No matter how vigilant I am about keeping it clean, my desk always ends up like this after a few months. Just an insight into part of my process.

I was contacted by Moses over at Pretty Penny Records to screen print the cover of 200 12” album sleeves for Kathryn Anne Davis’ new single, Makeup and Gum. The cover design is by Christ Fallon.

The first hundred (shown in the first photo) are printed with 5 color variants for the face borders, all mismatched so no face and border are the same color. The second hundred are the standard black and blue.

Also, I ended up designing and printing the back of the sleeves too.

Somehow I have become the unofficial poster designer for my friends, Windham Flat. These are a few of the designs I’ve come up with over the past few months. If you get a chance to check them out, they’re pretty amazing.
