08: When Life Gives You Lemons
Top row (left to right): Boulder at Kejimkujik National Park, Nova Scotia; Gulf of St. Lawrence from the ferry to Newfoundland; umbrella at the beach, Sandy Hook, Manitoba. Middle row: Dead end, Port Elgin, Ontario; lemon baby (featuring my niece Cadence); the difference between a lemon and Yemen. Bottom row: Lemon tree, Beaudry Provincial Park, Manitoba; the Lemon’s Prayer; rock formation on Flowerpot Island, Ontario.
These are my nine submissions to New York graphic designer Dan Bavosi's 50 Lemons website, a place where creative types let their imaginations run wild – so long as the output relates to lemons. Like myself since early December, Dan haunts HOW magazine's online forums, and was kind enough to post a link to this personal endeavour of his to get peoples' creative lemon juices flowing. So last Sunday I bought a lemon, took a few shots of it outside work on Monday and spent the week putting these citric vignettes together.
Bonus shout-out: The HOW forums are a fantastic place for designers and artists of all makes and models to ask and answer questions, offer and receive feedback on their work, vent, get inspired and/or generally have a good time. The creative energy coming from this place is simply mind-boggling. I'm grateful for discovering it.
