About the design
on July 20, 2009
The sense of absurd but symbolic protection this little gentleman has chosen, is methaphoric, so are the elements on the puppet strings, which are meant to fit the weather/ danger themes, and so is the whole design. You'll see for example the puppet strings controlling each others, coming from the upper clouds.
The earth, humanity (planet of hands) is now beginning to be colored, so, "protected" and "in peace" by the gentleman. I chose for the umbrella the peace colors flag, and it's also the rainbow colors of course.
It works on 7 colors, but i also made an alternative graphic version in 1 color.
Very important: THANKS a lot for all the ones who helped me, suggested, posted awesome comments on the critique section. And thanks to Manos for the flash template.
PS: (about copyrights, as the hands are inspired by the godfather's ones, it's clearly not an issue, as i redrew everything myself and mirrored it, so it's even the other hand).
