Postcard Project #2: Verbatim.

This postcard is the second in an ongoing series—the first of which can be seen here—where I take a word given to me by a close friend and translate it into some sort of artwork, print it and send it off to them as a postcard. I struggled with this one for a while, then things fell into place and I think that it ended up coming out rather well.

The large diagonal lines are formed by copies of the letter "v" (for verbatim). Their opacity is turned down so that they create patterns. Verbatim made me think of repetition, and I thought of song lyrics. I overlaid lyrics from one of my favourite tracks, Stay Hungry by Talking Heads, because they contain quite a bit of repetition.
