I've been told a couple of times that my design has a certain Hawaiian aesthetic. (At least by mainlander standards.) It usually takes me by surprise and then I look closer at the piece in question and I think, "Huh, you're right!" I realized this again today as I was coming up with some ideas for mini-cards for church. An idea I'm exploring looks like this:
Something about the colors I choose, the abstractions I make, and the general shape of my lines calls to mind a certain collection of islands in the Pacific Ocean.
A more obvious Hawaii reference is today's "Happy Friday" right below this post. See? The mainlanders might be right afterall.
