zodiac – capricorn

had the opportunity to do some zodiac signs in the style of ancient Greek art. Had some plays with the design, and although found some of the characters a little hard to achieve, finally made the full twelve set work quite well. This is one of the designs for the capricorn character that was finally completed in Illustrator. The final form can be seen below.

INGREDIENTS

1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
