It’s 3 am and I’ve finished this graphic I’ve been working on. A while ago I found this image of a statue with paint splattered like blood on it. I’ve been playing with it for a while but this is the first thing I’ve done that doesn’t suck. Here’s a caption.
“This is the letter d in Greek script, rendered in Garamond. I cannot remember where the hand is from. Tell me if you know. I feel bad just jacking it without a link.
It’s trite, but I’ve always had this image of depression as someone physically pushing the letter d down. To make the image less trite I used Greek letter Delta to obfuscate things.”
I used Photoshop to cut-and-paste stuff, and blending effects to make the physically impossible depth.
In the course of looking for (unused) stuff I found these excellent photos by Mike Schorr – a Renaissance Geek. Ron, you might like them. He takes close-ups of money and ethernet-jacks and stuff. He’s got some good Visual Stimulation, as he calls it, and I’d like to remember it here so I can sample it later. I’ve also been looking at Kerry/Edwards photos which just make me feel happy, perhaps because of their latent homo-eroticism. Anyways, it’s late and the mosquitos are out. Good night.
