hello all

This week is all about TEAM WORK… so things may have been very hard and frustrating these past weeks… but this week it all changes… this week we remember we like each other and that we are all making something together!

there is 4 aims of this week and they are big ones but we can do it cos we are good!

Aim 1: GET A SHOP- this will be every weeks aim till we manage to find one… so martin and jack maybe dedicated hour or two a day to this.

Aim 2: Make 200 products- this means cardboard collecting… 3 days this week.. at least 2 people each time (we need to get cardboard for party as well)

and for this week product printing is a job for me, Jack and Martin! woo making.. yay!

Aim 3: Website complete- this is a job for Ash and I- but I will need your guys support to get me images and input.. etc.

Aim 4: MAKE AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL Mooshie Taboo products!- this is under the capable hands of Ellie and Mr Patrick… but they will need support and encouragement… like ‘you can do it’ and ‘push it’ and well I imagine a Rocky movie montage with sweat running down Ellie’s face as Patrick, her coach shouts slogans at her.

I propose meet at 10am studio 5 for a quick plan the week’s output… whose who… whats what… any questions.. affair.. then get on have some fun and work real hard.

sound good?

and I was thinking

Monday-work hard from 10am then all go home at 5.30 and have time to ourselves…

Tuesday- 10 or 11 then meet for lunch then more sexy work then to  jacks for ironing T-shirts… dinner… make together then to buffalo.. we can figure best way round this and where.

Wednesday- work in studio till like 630- lots of printing and cutting and fun… then patrick for ironing, sewing labels and meeting… all eat there!

Thursday- long day at uni then home for me time? dinner alone.. candle lit

Friday… finish it… sleep and then


Ellie KP don’t think you are forgotten your AIM: have fun, get drunk and do many things I wouldn’t do… that will be hard cos I eat food off train floors and pretend to be a bird in airports… have a great time!

Things not to worry about this week..

design products- next week we can get back on that!

the budget.. beyond what I will do.. but again next week must get this tidy and all sorted!

the event ‘Shop’ … figuring it out and all those concerns other than getting a space.. gonna have a meeting


and…I have FINALLY finished the design that’s taken me a stretch of 4 days to complete due to ills. BUT ! it’s finally here, and i’m uber happy :)

This is what the screen will look like – in 3 parts. -Patrick, let me know if this looks okay. I can’t get each screen’s detail to be the same colour because there’s a variation of line and fill. but you get the idea. It’s going to need a lot of tape, …or maybe less colours in it? i dunno, it should be fine :) I’m just gunna have to write some thorough printing instructions and test the printing a lot before hand so i know what colour goes where. It might take a million years to print this one. but i think it will look lovely. I think i’m going to start sewing labels onto tshirts this week, while we’re waiting for the screens to be exposed.

This is what the design will look like, finished…hopefully!


my banana is mainly made of bruise.

We need to build a communal space like this : and to also maybe beat this guy on having the biggest treehouse in the world. BUT! only if we really need the space. otherwise it will be kinda wasteful. (cheers for the link rob)

Today i am at home* designing tshirts. serious business.

AND! today the canvas bags arrived. I only ordered them on Tuesday or something. amazing.

Yesterday i ordered the tshirts.

Today i also need to find out how much it is to run a stall at Beat Redemption. I think we’re in for Stitch : )

*it’s way too difficult to work at uni when designing. No internet in the studios means no design reference, new fonts or research. Also, i find it easier to design on my own, and to get feedback after, rather than faltering on every aspect as i’m trying to gain approval for every part, if i work with other people around. I need a scanner that works all the time with my mac, etc etc etc.

I’m not trying to split away from the group, i just have a terrifyingly pressure-filled deadline of TUESDAY for 4-6 tshirt designs and i will be running on 30%capacity at uni, The end

The biggest news of today is The Mighty Tshirt Endeavor. Which is even larger than it sounds.

So we’re looking to sell tshirts to make money for shop. This means initially putting in a large amount of money for an even bigger return. which = pressure for my designs to sell. So …here we go.

For 60 tees, in 6 different sizes it will cost £139.something, so each tshirt will cost £2.316666666forever

And if we sell them for £10 we can make £460 profit for shop.

-That’s if we sell 60 tees before it happens. But! It will mean making a profit for the collective to use in the future.

and maybe [we] should think about canvas bag[s]


£29.30 for 30 bags. including p&p

I have begun putting my sketches into Illustrator and tracing them to make vector quality designs. So far, they don’t look very good, but i’m working on them. Aiming to have 6 different designs in total, to go onto screens to be printed using the method of silkscreening.

And have a large number of tshirts printed and ready to sell before the 13th of Feb…!

-We plan to sell them at Beat Redemption and Stitch at 60 Million Postcards.

checking out the competition:

Also um um um…

I’m going to try to finish the products i previously mentioned, by putting barcodes onto them and getting them spell checked. exciting.

Patrick’s gunna be working on a ‘posh’ net for Instant Fame. It might be a pentagon shape or something sexy.

That’s all for now
