22. Tillsammans we create more

How a workshop typography at the old art school of Pablo Hannon got transformed into a Things I Like a Lot creative collab. One school day, a little dozen of year 5 and 6 girls, the teacher, an apprentice and a big bunch of fallen branches and wood finds. It was a wonderful day and outcome. And all that young energy got to burn the Things I Like a Lot initials at the end. (TILAL) up in flames! Gill Sans was not harmed during this collab. Au contraire! 

Alone, we are drops of rain.
Tillsammans, vi är regn.

The accomplices of that day:
Kunstschool Genk, Applied Visual Arts
Year 5: Levi Huang, Deniz Kaya, Yente Lemmens, Inge Otten, Efthalia Pegios, Laura Thaens
Year 6: Kirsty Buvens, Daphne Caelen, Margaux Oosterbosch, Jorinde Vandewal
Teacher: Willem Vrancken
Hectica apprentice: Fleur Broes
Things I Like a Lot: Pablo Hannon


21. Denver x Hasselt Postcards

Kaitlin Ziesmer and Pablo Hannon have been comparing the ordinary objects in a previous Things I Like a Lot collab. And like in other creative rencontres, making the distance between the two smaller step by step. Denver, Colorado vs Hasselt, Belgium. 3 Postcards are on the way to each other. Hand drawn and showing typical, nearly invisible to the locals, ordinary situations or objects. A house, is it? A house, where is it? A wobbly letterbox vs a sturdy mailbox. A light pole and some cable boxes. Objects we pass everyday. They appear through this collab. Just think of Kaitlin and Pablo when passing by that crooked window up the street, the chimney of your neighbour's house and the sewer hole a bit further. Ordinary, not so?


20. Let's meet in the clouds

A lot of TILAL members are from another timezone. It needs figuring out how to work the planning around the collab. This creative collab shows in a symbolic way the time laps between Ai Kohno in Tokyo, Japan and Pablo Hannon in Hasselt, Belgium.

They will meet and shake hands in the clouds. Four panels showing the world above and below the clouds. Pablo will create before going to sleep (above the clouds) and Ai will start when she wakes up (below the clouds). 7 Hours of difference. Today/Tomorrow — Before/After the sleep
