Today I was in a more graphical mood again, but also wanted to play with different media. Oil pastel is fun and versatile, but too much of one thing can be detrimental to the development of an idea.
I’m still not sure exactly where this idea in particular is going. I think it is just a reflection of some of my latest design work– a catalog layout, and another book-type layout job. I spend a lot of time clicking and pointing and dumping images in boxes in InDesign and OmniGraffle the last two weeks.
But a lot can be done with shapes that fit together. A brick wall, a stone path, tiles. Some optical illusions. Puzzles, circuits.
