KYUR8_19 Guest Editor: Steve MacDonald

KYUR8_19 Guest Editor: Steve MacDonald

Our September guest editor is not only one of the nicest guys we know, but he is also one of the most diverse artists and creative human being kinda dudes we know. Steve MacDonald aka Ramblin Worker creates his own fonts, uses a sewing machine as others might use a paint brush or spray can, draws, makes films, design tee-shirts, takes awesome photos and turns them into engaging pieces of magic. Dood also DJ’s when he feels the need. Pop culture, music, travel, skateboarding are his inspirations… Thank you Steve for breaking a leg (literally), to do this September issue of KYUR8 :)

SWEET CALL AND RESPONSE By Steve MacDonald and Dana F. Smith


By Steve MacDonald and Dana F. Smith

2012, San Francisco, California

edition of 25

Sweet Call and Response was developed with an emphasis on experimentation with the materials - digital printing on canvas, photo collage, machine sewn thread, and sewn collage.

Instinctively, messages are sent to attract a response. This book is a visual poem about communication through the interplay of universal symbols and photographic images.

The book is printed entirely on canvas specially coated for digital printing with pigmented inks. A variety of sewing techniques, such as patchwork and embroidery, are applied to the pages over the ink. Each page of the book is treated with meticulous stitching executed by hand using a home sewing machine. Pages are affected on both sides by the stitching. Inverse images create a visual echo woven into the design of the book, which propels the narrative ever forward.

Designed by Steve MacDonald and Dana F. Smith
