Seeing things...

So today i've mainly been making rorschach prints. This is for an idea I have for the Penguin student design competition, to create a book sleeve for 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' by Ken Kesey. Firstly I thought that the idea was a bit too simple, as any kid with a bit of ink can make a mirror image by folding the paper.. but as it turns out it's a bit more difficult to make them into something other than the obligatory butterfly! And I'm hooked!
The sleeve will (hopefully) feature hidden images within the rorschach print itself, but i'm thinking that these varied prints would look great on T-shirts or tote bags by themselves or as a repetitive pattern.. definitely something to expand on methinks!
