Update on Things: Deconstructed Corvid 1 - Fibonacci
Due to...logistics? Technique? My innate laziness?...there does not exist an original of this drawing. To have it on my wall I had to order it from myself via Zazzle. So this is the first and therefore most valuable copy of Fibonacci Raven. I will try to explain. I started this project on blue grid-lined paper (you know, the one that doesn't really render the lines invisible like they said it would.)
In a fit of inspired doodling, I started inking the original sketch. And then I kept going. Before I knew it, I had an almost fully-inked drawing on the wrong paper. I decided to try scanning it anyway. To be honest, I like the gridlines. They feel architectural, or something.
Also, I'm messy. There was a blob of purple paint on the page, as well as several wrinkles. And I'm lazy and didn't want to re-ink what already looked pretty damned good. I did some judicious scissoring; it took a few scans and cuts to excise the blue lines I didn't want to show up on the final design. I uploaded to Zazzle and arranged my oddly-shaped design until it was laid out the way I wanted it.
Zazzle kindly removed all the blue lines when they created the print. I'm not mad. They did not center it on their standard paper size, though. We'll have a talk about that.
I'm off to Goodwill to find us a frame.
If you'd like a signed copy, let me know and I will invoice you for the print+shipping+shipping-from-my house-to-yours after it's signed.
And please realise I am mail-challenged. This could take a while. Really it's better to forego the signature and ship it to yourself. Eventually I'll show up at your house and sign your print. I'll even back-date it if you like, depending how long it takes me to show up.
