The Big Bang!

An earlier idea for a neck label. The pistol was to be printed with the 'bang' sign being a real label sewn on top.
Using a pistol couldn't be justified in the end for this COY project, and stood against COY's beliefs.
This lead COY into thinking about implications and justifying the use of violent imagery.
Here it was more about creation (Big Bang) but may be seen in the wrong way.
Perhaps it makes a comment on the creation of a violent and destructive society.
COY may return to these ideas in the future.

Luck is a chance happening of fortune

Some encourage the belief in luck as a false idea, but which may spawn positive thinking, and alter ones responses for the better. Others like Jean Paul Sartre and Sigmund Freud, feel a belief in luck has more to do with a locus of control for events in one's life, and the subsequent escape from personal responsibility. According to this theory, one who ascribes their travails to "bad luck" will be found upon close examination to be living risky lifestyles. On the other hand, people who consider themselves "lucky" in having good health may be actually reaping the benefits of a cheerful outlook and satisfying social relationships, both of which are well known statistically to be protective against many stress-related diseases. If "good" and "bad" events occur at random to everyone, believers in good luck will experience a net gain in their fortunes, and vice versa for believers in bad luck. This is clearly likely to be self-reinforcing. Thus, although untrue, a belief in good luck may actually be an adaptive meme.

Feather Embroidery.

Feathers: Symbols of prayers, sources of ideas or marks of honor. Representing the Creative Force. Placed in a circular arrangement, they are related to the sun, and thereforth, the Creator.

Something not to be produced on a bigger scale.
It is important to COY to remain true to its origins.
The 'special selection' continues.

Archive 2: The Alchemists' collection sacks.

A small collection of bags were created on a rainy day.
In keeping with COY's plans, items created will not be restricted to t-shirts alone.
As COY progresses ideas will be presented through several mediums.
COY will re-visit these ideas.


A previous t-shirt design. COY will re-visit these ideas in the future.
