Hello Everyone.

I’m glad to join The Kdu Network.

## We Need Interns!

February 2009 / № 4306

Attention!
The KDU is looking for summer interns to work in our office in Brooklyn.
Graphic design, fashion design, web design etc.

Internship Portfolio Submissions should include 5 to 10 work examples and an updated resume.

## New online portfolio

February 2009 / № 4273

While the heat from the sun slowed me down on working on my new portfolio. I can now happily present you my new online portfolio. Hopefully you get inspired or just enjoy watching it, maybe you hate it. It happened before. But all I wanted is to start the summer as fresh as possible with a new website.

## Tiger Translate

February 2009 / № 4271

Tiger Translate.

A work in progress shot of a piece for Tiger Beers’ Tiger Translate global exhibition. This illustration will be part of a strip of different artworks by artists from West and East, each illustration connecting to the other.

Full development images and process coming soon…

A Hoberman sphere as an icosidodecahedron

In geometry, an icosidodecahedron is a polyhedron with twenty triangular faces and twelve pentagonal faces. An icosidodecahedron has 30 identical vertices, with two triangles and two pentagons meeting at each, and 60 identical edges, each separating a triangle from a pentagon. As such it is one of the Archimedean solids and more particularly, a quasiregular polyhedron.

An icosidodecahedron has icosahedral symmetry, and its first stellation is the compound of a dodecahedron and its dual icosahedron, with the vertices of the icosahedron located at the midpoints of the edges of either. Convenient Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of an icosidodecahedron with unit edges are given by the cyclic permutations of (0,0,±τ), (±1/2, ±τ/2, ±(1+τ)/2), where τ is the golden ratio, (1+√5)/2. Its dual polyhedron is the rhombic triacontahedron. An icosidodecahedron can be split along several planes to form pentagonal rotundae, which belong among the Johnson solids.

In the standard nomenclature used for the Johnson solids, an icosidodecahedron would be called a pentagonal gyrobirotunda.

## Area and volume

The area A and the volume V of the icosidodecahedron of edge length a are:

$A = (5sqrt{3}+3sqrt{25+10sqrt{5}}) a^2 approx 29.3059828a^2$
$V = frac{1}{6} (45+17sqrt{5}) a^3 approx 13.8355259a^3.$

## Related polyhedra

The icosidodecahedron is a rectified dodecahedron and also a rectified icosahedron, existing as the full-edge truncation between these regular solids.

The Icosidodecahedron contains 12 pentagons of the dodecahedron and 20 triangles of the icosahedron:

 Dodecahedron Truncated dodecahedron Icosidodecahedron Truncated icosahedron Icosahedron

It is also related to the Johnson solid called a pentagonal orthobirotunda created by two pentagonal rotunda connected as mirror images.

 Icosidodecahedron (pentagonal gyrobirotunda) Pentagonal orthobirotunda Pentagonal rotunda

Eight uniform star polyhedra share the same vertex arrangement. Of these, two also share the same edge arrangement: the small icosihemidodecahedron (having the triangular faces in common), and the small dodecahemidodecahedron (having the pentagonal faces in common). The vertex arrangement is also shared with the compounds of five octahedra and of five tetrahemihexahedra.

## Gully or Gaza?

February 2009 / № 4251

Gully or Gaza?.

A still from a series of animations created for a music and arts event Visual Soundclash. A series of artists and dj’s were paired up, the artists creating the visuals for a 15minute set – the dj’s then battling each other and the crowd deciding the winners. The event was created by Plain Janes and held at C.A.M.P – The City Arts & Music Project.

I was paired with the brilliant muli-creative PC Williams, who’s dancehall/bashment set won through to gain us gold overall.

## An illustrative collaboration…

February 2009 / № 4260

Recently released, in a collaboration with Reykjavik design doyennes Bility, are my Vinarþel Cake and Coffee Stencils. The design brief was open, an invitation extended to me to apply my illustrated stylings to a product of my choosing and design. The Bility homewares brand is all about experimentation, and bridging the gap between art and design. As someone with a graffiti background whose present day interests include the delicate domestic arts of baking and decorating, I couldn’t resist finding a happy co-existence between these two vastly different worlds. The results, as photographed by the most excellent Marino Thorlacius, are very pleasing indeed.

## Minga X Makeshift Prodigy

February 2009 / № 4221

More product shots of Mathematica,  the Makeshift Prodigy album i designed. Turned out pretty amazing, couldn’t be more satisfied with the printing overall; but the disc is probably the sickest part. Always love working with these dudes and can’t wait for them to get signed so we can produce something absolutely retarded! thanks
