Poster Dots

I was messing around with the Bead Club poster and made Grid No. 2 Sponge Orange (above). The whole thing started with a photograph of a little 12x12 inch collage on canvas called Flatland Spin (below). It is fun to see how one thing progresses into another and then another until something totally new and surprising comes to life.

It started out with a simple repeat.


And then a color change along with a distortion.

And then I cropped the dot and repeated and played some more.

This is so much fun it should be illegal.

Cone Flowers Photoshopped

It suddenly occurred to me that I have years of un-manipulated photos to mine for designs. I needed a quick poster for the Bead Club and started messing around. First I cleaned up the background and posterized.

Then I inverted and started changing colors.

I'm still so new to this that I probably overuse gradients but I do really like them. This would make pretty neat fabric.

There is a motion created by gazing on this and relaxing the vision. I can see lines appear where there are none.
