Here is the first tote bag printed today by Satisfactory Printing here in Athens. More to come on those guys later, but for now you can check them out at satisfactoryprinting.com. The bags are sturdy cotton canvas, printed on both sides and will be available on my web site soon.

At last Blazberry Hwy, the bus shelter designed by ADD (the design group i belong to), is finished, installed and ready to be defaced by hoodlums. It's such a relief to have it done. i drank SIX glasses of champagne at the city-wide celebration tonight. Good thing i was on my bike.

An old parlor trick, so i've heard.
Here are the instructions:
1.Click on the image to save to your computer, then print onto heavy card stock.
2.Cut out one image and glue it upside down onto the back of the other, then cut them both out together (don't cut out the little strings, they're just for show).When you look at it through the light, the bird should be upside down in the cage.
3.Punch holes as indicated.
4.Cut 2 pieces of heavy string about 8-10 inches long. Make a loop on the end of each string large big enough for your finger to fit through, and tie the other end through the punched holes.
5.Put the loops over your index fingers and wind up the paper by flipping it 10 or 20 times or until the strings start twisting up.
6.Pull the strings. The bird appears to be in the cage. This was waaay before television.

Double-click or right-click on this pattern to save it to your computer. It will probably look really huge- but it will print out as an 8" square. After you print it out, cut out the pattern into a perfect square and use for origami. To find instructions for folding a paper crane, here are some links:

Also called a Magic Square.
Each row adds up to 15.
You'll notice that the even numbers are out-numbered by the odd numbers. They're also located in the corners of the square. According to Chinese legend, the Lo Shu square appeared 4000 years ago on the back of a turtle that crawled out of the Lo river. They believed that the universe is based on mathematic principles, and that these numbers were the key to invisible forces that governed heaven and earth.
-From a book on Feng Shui by Lillian Too.
