Our color teacher at The Circus was Sylvia. Most people who have attended an advertising school in Atlanta have had the pleasure of Sylvia's classes. She is tough. And really good. You learn color theory in a short six months and are up late many many nights working on her never ending projects.
Her final project had something to do with tribe symbols and patterns, contrasting colors, a "pop" color and something else. I found my piece of work when we moved to this house. It is a rug for a kid's room and since I now have kiddos, it sits on D's floor. The constellations are copied from H. A. Rey's The Stars: A New Way To See Them (an awesome book!). Who would have thought that this thing would actually come of use!
