ASL poster

Phew! Can you believe it? Finished the whole alphabet! Right in time to attend a real sign language course and learn there are some variations.  Mostly, it is that the hand is placed in front of one’s chest and the fingers extend towards the other person, so in letters like “C” and “D” the illustrated view would be the side view.  However, I still think this is a cool poster for illustrating how the asl alphabet relates to our written alphabet.

One page zine

As part of my bookmaking class we made one page zines, which are great because they’re super simple, you just cut once in the middle.  If you ever feel like making one you can collage, draw, and reproduce with a photocopier.  I made this one thinking about different ways of communicating and connecting.  The hand shapes spell ‘friend’ in American Sign Language.  It’s free for you to print and fold yourself!
