The Story: Four things! 1. The release of the sixth Harry Potter book, 2. When Prince Charles came and gave a speech at the building where I worked, 3. A Concert, and 4. The Premiere of Star Wars III.
4 Events, 1 Page: I wanted to remember all of these, but didn’t want separate layouts for them. This was an experiment to see if I could put disparate things together.
Inspiration: I was inspired by magazine layouts, specifically the first few pages of a magazine where they tend to cover lots of bits and pieces on one page.
Printing Text on Page: I worked again with my wide format printer to print the text directly on the page. I drew the dividing lines by hand.
Movie Poster: I got this one off the good ol’ internet. Again, since I was printing it very small, it didn’t matter if the quality wasn’t optimal.
Remembering the Little Things: The best part about documenting each of these events is remembering where we were in our lives when they happened. For the Star Wars entry, I summarized the very different places I was in my life when each of the three prequels premiered: the first was when I was in high school, the second while I was at college and Mr. P and I were just friends, the third when Mr. P and I were engaged and living together.
