Been Busy

Have been busy with plenty of saddles on the go Here's one of the latest, a birthday present for Adam who apparently treasures other people's trash. One man's trash is another man's treasure. Sounds similar to the five frames I've just managed to clear out through ebay, some nice ones amongst them but too big for me, shouldn't have collected them in the first place.

The recent silence has been in part because Uni has started back, it has nearly been a whole month. I'm running a fashion design studio titled 'Cycle Craft', the same name as the Craft Victoria urban Interior Occupation in September 2008.

Off to London next week, 8 or more saddles currently on the go. So hopefully the next post will include a bunch of nice fresh saddles.

Scenes From The Studio

Who'd think this is the studio where bike stuff happens? There are some saddles on the verge of happening, but the project at the moment is Thuy's wedding outfit. A pair of wool tailored shorts and white half placket shirt.

Sewing has been known to do my head in, often resulting in exhaustive strings of obscenities at full volume. Didn't happen this time, mostly because I took regular breaks. It's stressful business, sewing.

The last break I grabbed the camera and snapped some micro scenes of the studio, the details. Though there's not much bike stuff (only in one image) in this post there a detail from Malcolm Peels drawing, Vahit Altinay's 'French Curve' from his University days in Ankara and an X rated birthday card drawn by Tri.

Thuy's shorts are almost complete and then there's four saddles to do. On top of all that University started back today. Tomorrow I'm starting off my studio class, Cycle Craft, a fashion design studio dealing with the conjunction of the bicycle and fashion.
