Just for SQUARES!

There was a prompt from CreativeSprint to make something just using squares. I'd forgotten how I'd learned to love squares while teaching 2D design with Wucius Wong and Josef Albers Interaction of Color (years ago) I thought, Wow, there must be other Square lovers out there. Thanks to Katerina for the name idea. See More

"It comes in colors everywhere
She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow"

An envelope lined with a rainbow painted on a paper towel, a card manufactured with fabric and thread embroidered with rhinestones and sequins.

"Ela vem em cores em todos os lugares
Ela penteia o cabelo dela
Ela é como um arco-íris"

Um envelope forrado com um arco-íris pintado num papel toalha, um cartão manufacturado com tecido e fio bordado com brilhantes e lantejoulas.

Hi Jan, thanks for another great contribution to Asemic Front; I've documented it. I'll post pics on the IUOMA-Ning site but won't re-post blogs anymore due to the excessive technical difficulties w/ Ning. I hope you continue as a contributor to AF2. Regards, DVS

Mail from Cherub

Posted on September 17, 2019 at 11:04pm 1 Comment

I'm finally getting this piece up from Cherub, but didn't get the envelope scanned, also fine. I'm thinking of using this as a luggage tag as it's nicely laminated! (Can't get the photo to show up, waaanh)
