This week we were challenged to tangle a mobius strip or to make a tile including the Moebius Syndrome Foundation's logo. This was to honor/raise awareness of The Diva's young son Artoo who has Moebius syndrome. You can read more about the challenge, syndrome, The Diva and Artoo on her blog.
I wasn't up to the challenge of making a mobius strip althought that would be pretty cool. Time was not on my side so I went with the logo. I used paradox in the white space of the strip to keep with the whole infinity thing. After I got that done though, I was unsure where to go next. Then I decided to use Artoo (the tangle) because, well, it is all about Artoo isn't it? :) I used the purple gel pen from last week to color in the petals. I didn't get exact with the color either. I wanted it to have some character. Then, I added bales to the background. I was going to add more tangles but I changed my mind, as I wanted the logo and Artoo to stand out. They are the main/important parts here after all. I kept shading to a minimum as well for the same reason.
I wish the best for The Diva, Artoo and their family. They face challenges every day that many people would run from and beat them down as the go. I admire that. Go on Artoo! Grow big and grow strong!
