Craig Frazier

"If our work is simple enough, it is entirely possible that we can penetrate someone's mind. If it is smart enough, it is entirely possible that we can change it."
Craig Frazier
Well, I have been absent from my blog trying to think what the future holds for Azul-Azul.  Lots of plans, ideas of what to do better.  I am excited about the idea of seriously venturing in creating uniquely designed fabric and opening a shop as an extension of this blog. I want my fabrics to be be simple, with a story to tell and/or to create but the question is how?  Craig Frazier's words and work came to mind, he always tells a story in one simple creative illustration! I want to apply his philosophy in my work. I am just in the beginning phase right now.. lots to research lots to learn! Enjoy his work and I will keep you inform of my progress!

My Experimental Book

At work I met a wonderful woman who has been my inspiration.  At her studio I created this experimental book where the "assignment" was to find an old photo and create a story based on it. The only information I had about these photos is that the girl's name was Dorothy, then I created a story based on my own daughter and her love for shoes.  I used old journal pages and for the front and back of the cover I screenprinted the fabric with a poem and a bird found in the archives.  The rest of the spreads were made by cutting, pasting and photocopying magazines into the old journal pages.  Every page was sewn together with a yellow thread as a final touch. Enjoy it.
