The blue story

Chapter 5: part 2: FIBONACCI
by Elise Mullen

My guess for daria’s word is… FIBONACCI!

Only because Daria and I were big math geeks in highschool… I know super cool.

It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to do with this piece. I usually have an idea right away and go with my gut and see where it leads, but that was not the case this time. I think its took me a good month to even make a mark on this piece of paper.

I started off with putting a transparent black wash over top, just enough to darken it while making sure the lines Daria made where still visible. I then wanted to add a “flowy” image over top to contrast the measured straight line work underneath. I decided a tree would be perfect, as it related to her last word NATURE and fit well with my “flowy” theme.

Although this one took a while to come together, it worked out really well! I honestly did even think of the FIBONACCI until I started writing up this post… I also realized the nature connection as well, I just wanted something to contrast the straight lines… hahaha. Sometimes it just all comes together….
