This is a brief sketch I put together to bounce off a new collaborator — just a little something that popped into my mind while out the other day, a manifestation of an homage to Ed Ruscha that I’ve been meaning to do for years. Here’s the 720p Quicktime version, which looks much better than the one above. The black line is an unintentional rendering glitch; however, as my collab said, “The black line is a nice touch; as the Persian rugmakers said, perfection is an offense to God.”
