About the design
on September 5, 2008
This design was based off of several pages I scanned in from my personal sketchbook. I draw and paint in an 9x12 sketchbook very often; I write things and paint and doodle anything that comes to mind. I went back and looked through the pages, and a page in particular inspired me, where I had written "paint the silence" over and over. That is what drawing is to me - painting over the silence of a blank page. (Excuse my cheesiness.)
I re-worked and combined the sketcbook scans in the computer to add color and cohesion, and this is my result!
