Popical Island Saturday 2011 photos

Lots of photos from the Popical Island #2 launch are over on the Popical Island Facebook page. Fun day!

Go here to view:



Here’s six of the two hundred covers we made for Compilation #2. They were painted and stamped by Anna, Annie, Bronwyn, Cormac, Jonny, Mide, Mike, Nora, Pádraig C, Padraig O’R, Ruan, Saileóg and Valerie. Mike made the spinning contraption that gave them that lovely effect, we were all really impressed but we hid it and were all like “Pfft! Check out Doc Brown and his dumb machine!” to annoy him.

We love you Mike!
