XXXX Swatchbook – Evelin Kasikov

This book is about print, but printed without a trace of ink.
It is a personal project that I have been slowly working on past 6 years. This massive project brings together my love for book design and my experimental approach to craft.

The book is made of:

4 colours
16 elements
400 colour combinations
219.647 stitches

In the four colour printing process, the patterns of small overlapping dots create full range of colour. Here the process is tactile and three-dimensional. My inks are threads in CMYK colours: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. All elements in the book are hand-embroidered: the swatches, the title pages, the grid papers, and binding.

Hi everyone,

It’s an extreme tough time to all the people who have to face and struggle the virus, we hope you stay healthy and safe.

‘Do something helpful for our living community’ has inspired me and Yutong to keep trying and creating. We know not everyone can get a proper protection at quarantine time right now, so we want to share the idea of our home-made mask — ‘EVERYONE CAN MAKE A MASK’. It’s a quite simple way to help and keep you safe with what matters to you the most.

Make sure you have the proper tools and protective materials for making the mask, hope it helps people not harms. You can download the mask template for free and check the tutorial video below.

It’s a public interest project for benefiting people, do not use for any commercial purpose without authorization.

Keep social distance, wash your hands and support the frontline. Hope it can help you to get through this tough time.

100 Thieves makes its entire apparel line available in Animal Crossing

This gear won’t sell out.

Apparel drops from 100 Thieves, a lifestyle and esports organization, are notoriously hard to get in on. Whenever the company releases a new hoodie or jersey, it sells out almost immediately. But there’s a new way to get some 100 Thieves gear, and it’s not only easy, but cheap: download it in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Today, the company released virtual versions of every single piece they’ve released to date, spanning three years. As with all user-created items in New Horizons, you can download the designs for free by entering the proper creator code; the codes for all the gear can be found here, organized by the year the items were first released in the real world.
