We made the cover of Distro!
We MADE the cover! On the Kikori!
Apparently they saw the sign I made to attract Engadget to my space at the Artisan’s Asylum, and decided something like that would be awesome for their cover.
I couldn’t agree more. I’m very pleased with how this turned out.
The funny thing is, the version that they used wasn’t even supposed to have been made! Here’s what happened: the guys at Distro wanted me to make the sign out of two hardwood plywoods: white birch and clear pine. However, my local supplier was out of clear pine, so he substituted the fir instead. I did manage to find a knot-free piece of pine plywood that was big enough around the shop, so I sent them versions in all three woods: birch, fir, and pine. As it turns out, they used the fir, and it looks great. You should go download it right now! There’s a great article about the Artisan’s Asylum.
I love doing custom jobs like this. If you would like something similar for your publication (or wall!), drop me a line!
