Avoid the Future is a blog about comic books, covering everything from small press publishers to the big indies and beyond. Based on a secret island fortress somewhere between the UK and France, we’ve been lucky enough to feature reviews, previews, and interviews with creators and industry professionals.

A "blowup" of a "quadrichrome" or 4 color offset lithograph section, circa 1950 Italian.

Offset lithography may begin with a photograph or scan of something. It can also be a photograph of an original painting, or a gouache. In the laboratory the photograph or scan is separated by a special camera and today by computer, into the four basic color elements- red, yellow, blue and black. A negative is then made for each color.
Soojin Kang of Seoul, Korea via all the mountains . These are pieces of reclaimed furniture that Kang has reupholstered (by hand) with scraps of leather. She’s clearly a super talented designer as she’s able to turn discarded goods into beautifully-crafted objects. “According to designer Soojin Kang, who ‘fights against this epidemic (of disposables) with needles and threads,’ she believes that the lack of consumer consciousness will increase even more in the future.
