Illustration Friday - Backwards


Backwards can be beautiful. The first thing that popped into my mind for the prompt backwards was dyslexia, as both my children have learning differences. The next thing that popped into my mind was Leonardo da Vinci's handwriting. For this week's prompt, I played with da Vinci's image printed out on card stock as a collage element. I also tried using da Vinci's handwriting as a background, but I couldn't get that to work well. I think I was subconsciously going after a Andy Warhol-like look.

Interesting bringing Warhol and DaVinci into the same sentence, but into a single art piece, very nice.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and offering complimentry words.

I am a teacher and often see children with dyslexia. It always sorts itself out, so don't worry too much.
This is a remarkable illustration. Thanx for visiting me.
