Spent the afternoon working on my bonsai. This creation is recycled material. The current bonsai inspired background with an illustration of a literati style tree I created a year or so ago. The original illustration was created in gray scale, today I added color.
Tonight I am using an illustration of eyes framed in glasses as my daily design post. After all, it was my daily design today. These illustrations are for another project I am currently working on. I had to create the impression of eyes behind reading glasses but use a shape that was more definitive than just a plain circular shape. I created the eye shapes you see here in very short order (a matter of seconds) with out much thought. I think they turned out pretty great and I thank my years of Daily Design Project practice for training me to come up with a simple, effective solutions in such a manner!
I’ve been consumed by Bonsai for the past week. All the while, in the corner of my mind is a project I am working on for Bonsai Empire. I finally got back to working on the design for them this weekend. I needed to retrace the kanji characters that represent the word Bon-sai for the design. so this is what I am sharing with you as my daily design.
Another lovely day here in the Capital region. Inspired by the abundant cosmetic planting around the area, these are ornaments from the Fournier typeface which I’ve been experimenting with for the past couple days.
