Blessed Be The Definition And Nina Adelita Suprema

 October 4, 2021

   As you may have noticed, I have a thing for motion and blurred lines. 

Daily Scratchboard Whip Out:

"Last Fandango at The Heatwave Cafe"

   But there is also something to be said for solid definition. Here is one of my graphic heroes at his best.

A Classic Hohlwein Horse

 That would be Ludwig Hohlwein, a German graphic designer and commercial artist of the 1920-40 era. Note the specific highlights (no blended highlights) and sharply-etched-edges. So damn cool. Everything gets deliniated down to simple shapes amid a strong design. So damn German!

The Bold And The Beautiful

   Soldaderas, also called adelitas, were female soldiers of the Mexican Revolution and they continue to fascinate me.

Daily Whip Out: "Nina Adelita Suprema"

   Seems like there should be a good legendary character in there somewhere, and, perhaps Nina Suprema is the ticket to that dance.

"A job is never truly finished. It just reaches a stage where it can be left alone for awhile."
