Sanskrit in Other Indian Scripts.

Sanskrit is usually written using Devanagari however while searching for something completely different I found this.

Its a quite intriguing and useful variety of Indian scripts used for Indo-European and Dravidian languages. Also a useful reference point for typographers and others as you can see related yet variant letter shapes.

More Making Clouds

#clouds #rainclouds #inkscape #demo 
This is about 50% finished but finished enough to be a useful example?
I can think of at least 3 other edits I can do. Read on below the image.

Copyright Julie Vaux 2016
So what was my inspiration? I was thinking of the weather in Sydney and of Japanese book covers which require a space to be left on the right hand side and the top for kanji and kana. I created the clouds and the umbrella kanji separately and then joined them on one worksheet and added a couple of more filters.

I may have overdone the watercolor effect and need to add some shadow and seen in a different browser outside of Inkscape I can now see the clouds need another edit at the edges but I could also duplicate and flip the clouds and add a different color background or a landscape in the bottom layer so I'll be storing this image for future usage. I think also I'll look for a haiku that uses the words rain or umbrella in it. Enjoy.

Making Clouds in Inkscape.

Making Clouds in Inkscape.

Vector Objects combined with gradients and Texture filters can create some very "painterly" effects similar to watercolor ink and gouache.

#wac #workshopartscentre #willoughby #logo #logoptoposal

Here's a mockup of a worksheet for an Art Centre Logo.

I wanted to have the Workshop Arts Centre in Willoughby a new log.

I havnt been foramlly commissioned to do so YET but here's a few ideas !

I wanted the letters to be plain but have some punch and modern desktop color printers should make having a bevelled as well as flat color version possible for inhouse printing.

Perhaps the last one as a reward on spl badges for market day volunteers?
