Dimanche à la campagne

Some, however, are never happy with the outcome, so added slightly improved version (chances are you won’t even see what it is) to this gallery.

Shot in Myrdal, Tysnes, today.

Well, it is Easter, isn’t it?

Also sorry for breaking stride over the past couple of weeks. Suppose I’ll have to realise it just wasn’t to be.

You know how it is.

Honestly do not know what came over me. Just saw an old photograph of a Mobil garage, including those iconic cylindrical petrol pumps.

I miss unique details like that in design everywhere. So had to draw one myself, partly based on (a very small!) photo and on memory, so accuracy may not be the best. My apologies for that.

Sunday and nothing better to do, but a nice addition to my personal clip art library, all the same.

P.S. And, as you will see, clearly a work still in progress.

The Pantone colours presented thus far have all been marked “U”, for uncoated paper, implying that what the graphic artist sees on his or her paper colour swatch is what the colour is actually going to look like in print.

Thing is, however, that my Pantone colour swatch (below) is printed on coated paper, and colours are, therefore, marked “C”, so actually only have an on-screen representation of what an uncoated version of Pantone 430 will look like in print.

You may think these things really do not matter, but believe you me, they actually do.

Then again, who in their right mind prints anything these days anyway.

Due to one of our almost 14-year-old’s teenage whims the entire family has grown accustomed to part-time vegetarianism for about a month now, save the occasional bloody steak and rash of bacon (obviously not for the resolute daughter).

This cannot possibly be good, but the world does need peace these days, so made this (both above and below, although the latter on an earlier occasion).
