Supadudeywords part 2

This is the second stage of my project Supadudeywords. I made a set of custom drawing tools. The original nibs were laser cut in the FabLab at Liverpool School of Art & Design. They were a right disaster, the first versions were cut from composite board. They fell apart as soon at they were dipped in ink. I ended up using Copic chisel tip nibs. The holders were based on highlighter markers.

I spent a day working with poet Nathan Jones and two schools at Tate Liverpool – De La Salle Academy from Croxteth and University Academy Liverpool. They were clever, very cool Liverpool kids. I wore my gold High Tops and Soul 2 Soul snap back cap. I think the kids thought I had street cred.
