@xenophora Still trying to get image descriptions to work?

I have yet to have an image description show up where it's supposed to. I've given up on it.

@flugennock Nah. Like I said before, I prefer to use the body of the post because typing into that tiny space for the mouse-over text is a huge pain. I always end up with 10 typos and shit. 🤡

@xenophora

good one!

i get the sense you're changing (aesthetically)

the repeated zigzags all over are very nice

colors a bit off (not "harmonious" palates you often work from), and text integration not as powerful (or pithy) as your best work

but growth and experimentation apparent to me.

as always, keep it going ...

[waves] Can't help it. I just love a good dunk in the primary palette. It's so re-invigorating when burnout threatens.

It's true the phrases are lifted unaltered from the same cake decorating catalog which yielded the little space guys. :) 1971 was a magic year.
