Hi everyone. And Happy Back-At-It. Just exited from a long tunnel of work work work. And though I’m tired and satisfied on the one hand, my creative mind (such as it is) wants to play on the other. So I’ve indulged myself in a project I’ve often thought of but never undertaken, and that is to create a pattern (such as for a textile) from texture that I see in the city. The pattern I’ve come up with is this:
And it came into being like this: From a wall fragment of the Castello Sforzesco to variations on color that could go on and on. I stopped when my heart felt happy and I had something I’d like to see printed on silk and wrapped around my own neck (even though yellow never does anything good for my skin):
This has been fun. I think I’ll try it again. #2 should be coming soon.
