Some new art work ideas.

Post by Ragnar » Fri Jun 27, 2008 7:35 am

I thought you all may appreciate some of my New art project on Greeting cards.

Obviously the Guillotine COULD have "Happy christmas" or "Congratulations on your driving test pass" or something.

This one has sold well to the U.S Marine guard at the U.S Embassy here. :lol:

Oohhh errr. Sorry.

Yes, the guillotine is "Good evening" and the other is "good morning", (Guten Abend, Guten Morgen) taken from an idea given me by one of our hearth members when he said "Ragnar is the only person I know that makes a simple "good morning" sound like a declaration of global thermonuclear war". :-?

They are in what is called "Fraktur" which is the old German script, used in publishing regularly until about the mid sixties. Then really "died out" with the advent of word processors.

But I use it to do reprints of the old Napoleonic orders and other leafelets.

I like them,

but my sense of irony says that the guillotine should be a wedding card or something.!

Maybe that is simply because you are planning a wedding and you feel like that somedays!

That is completley possible..but I do like irony in cards. I just saw a get well card where the inside said "now we know you don't wash your hands in the bathroom." I thought it was pretty funny.

Very good, now that I know what the words mean.

The A-bomb Good morning would be fitting if it were posted at my workplace. :badgrin:
Just the mood of things at this company lately.
