For this typography assignment we had to create a personal “saint” and create a gothic quarto manuscript. It took foreverrrrr, but it turned out nice. Also, using the gold leaf stuff was pretty cool.
The story reads as follows:
Born into a dreadfully plain existence, Insomnigaia was just a normal girl. Living a humble life, she tended to her studies, and little else. She would often sleep very little, or not at all, due to frequently being pressed with tasks and deadlines. On the nights that she could actually get some sleep, her dreams ran rampant with insanity. Whether vivid nightmares or lucid fantasies, she always woke up feeling lost. She always wanted to explore the world, see new places, and embrace other cultures as seen in these dreams. Her chance finally came after years and years of waiting, and she could not have been more excited. Unfortunately for her, however, she never reached her destination and ended up in a shipwreck while en route. She died forever wondering what life could have been like. It is said that a well near her old house can transport people to exciting new lands, but the myth seems to serve as more of a warning. Those who looked into the well met untimely demises shortly after; yet drinking the water, if one can retrieve it without looking, is said to cure bad migraines and sleeping problems.
If you can’t afford to give anything, or just don’t wish to, I’d still really appreciate a reblog to spread the word around!
Now, what may interest you all the most is that I am willing to do a sort of giveaway for the donations I receive! Every donation given will enter you a chance to win. Yes, this means you can donate multiple times! Just make sure that when you make a donation, you leave a message stating that you are from tumblr and wish to be placed into the drawing! You also obviously have to be okay with me knowing your address, which I will be asking the winner for at a later date. As of now, I’m thinking the deadline for this contest will be SUNDAY, JULY 20th, which is after my internship ends.
What are the prizes, you ask? I plan on putting together a bundle of 3-5 prints I have made throughout the years. (The number of prints depends on how many donations I get; if I only get a couple small donations, it’d only be 3. The max is 5)
This is just a small sampling of what may be included:
I’m pretty flexible though, so if you have something else in mind, let me know! I may even be willing to take on some sort of commission if you donate enough.
If you’d read everything up until here, you are petty awesome! I’m hoping that this goes well haha. Once again, if you can’t donate, please reblog to spread the word!Thanks!(:

Our Screenprinting class is doing a collaborative installation, so we had to produce 10 purple and 10 navy prints of the key image from our previous project. They will later be cut up into shapes for the installation wall
