breach is an experimental typeface which I designed as an entry for fontstruct’s counter competition. The counters in breach overlap the outlines of their glyphs and extend beyond them. breach can be downloaded for free from the fontstruct website (requires login) as a 149 glyph TTF font.
I am delighted to be artist-in-residence in the Butler Gallery during the exhibition around Cartoon Saloon’s film the Breadwinner.
I will be in the gallery on Tuesdays and Thursdays 2-4pm until 12 July and visitors will be able to make their own cut-out designs inspired by the papercut style of the Story World in The Breadwinner. I will also run a workshop as part of National Drawing Day (Saturday 19 May 12-4pm) and children’s workshops on three Sundays: 27 May, 10 June and 24 June (5-7 years: 11am-12.30pm and 8-12 years: 2pm-3.30pm).
Studio 7, Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Annaghmakerrig, Co. Monaghan
Over Easter, I was finally able to book my second residency week at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig. This time I stayed in Miss Worby’s room, which is said to be haunted by her ghost and I worked in Studio 7 on another series of Ink on Paper. Thanks again to Kilkenny County Council’s Arts Office for the bursary.
