or is it memorex???
(you have to be of a certain age to get that one!)
so many times when i am making something i wonder where the idea came from
all of the things that we see, hear, and read come together in our brains and form new thoughts, ideas and visuals
hard as i try to create my own designs i know that somewhere along the way, something influenced me
i'm working on a banner for a class sample and wanted to design my own lettering
i resolutely refrained from looking at fonts on here or in books or cards
and just drew from what was in my own head
and half-an-eraser-later i came up with this
designed by me, influenced from the world i live in
as i look at the pictures i see little design flaws - the wrong curve here, too wide of a slant there,
details sure enough, that probably don't really matter except when you have an eraser in your hand...
banners and garlands aren't new at all, and i'm not likely to be inventing anything remotely new or stunning here but i can tell you that what i am doing is as much of my own thinking as possible in a world full of people who are playing with the same toys
and i'm thinking to myself, and apparently to all of you since i am typing this on my blog, that whatever i conjure up, it will be of my doing
"it will be real"
