Fibonacci - Sacred Geometry

Belonging to a closed group of scribbler's; the weekly prompt was sacred geometry. So, I decided to try my hand at the Fibonacci nautilus. My attempt to do it by hand, with my engineering tools, was frustrating; trying to make perfect squares. So, I decided to use my Adobe Illustrator and do it with my computer. So here is the one I just finished. I want to try other solutions, but this is my first.

I also designed the letters, using geometric forms.

Another great class at the San Francisco Center for the Book I taught this last weekend. I had eight great creative students. I added an additional technique of using a logwood blanket. It turned out to be a great addition.

uses for printed papers

The flowers printed well.

A full piece of logwood blanket...beautiful!
