    When I think of Adrian Frutiger, I think of, well, Frutiger, which is sort of a humanist grotesk, maybe. Then I think of Myriad Pro. Of course Frutiger didn't design Myriad, but Myriad is pretty much...

    I understand what you are trying to achieve (and I have seen some other good examples in a similar style) but to me it doesn't read as 'EFM'. It seems incomplete. Needs more work. Or a different appr...

    There is no recognition of your initials without knowing what they are. Nicely executed but conception is weak. Try another avenue.

    Thanks! This is the first scratch art I've done of someone I know!

          Cornfed, that's a great likeness of Goldman. You did a wonderful job capturing his spirit, too. He'll love it!

            Thanks! These are so fun to make. I'm ready to start my next one. It's going to be on 11x14. I haven't done one bigger than 8x8 yet.

                I hadn't thought much about scratch art or known it was something I could readily buy supplies for until I was depressed and impulse buying in Michael's! I recently bought some official scratch board scratching tools that are supposed to give different effects. I don't care for them that much and think I'm gonna stick with just my 4 prong tip scratcher and x-acto.

                The cool thing about scratch art, also, is that it's cheap! The boards are only about $4 without a Michaels coupon! I never go in Michael's without some form of a coupon, usually the 40% one, so that puts the boards at less than $3.

                    Thanks kittie! He loved it and was all teary and sweet! He already picked his spot to hang it in his kitchen! The kitchen around here is like the living room in most places!

                    Aside from the satisfaction of making someone so special to me happy, I also benefited by getting to eat stewed okra that was picked this morning with sausage that was smoked up the road, eggs gathered from the yard that morning, freshly picked cucumbers and bell peppers with a yummy pickle/pepper sauce on the side...of course made from garden fresh pickles, bell peppers, potatoes, onions, celery, garlic and vinegar. I also got to take leftovers and pecans that were roasted in an orange juice/brown sugar combo (you guessed it...from the pecan tree out back!), and two pieces of cake...all made by his lovely creole wife! Then we jammed to a bunch of old creole tunes.

                          Cornfed love your work. I like the liveliness of your lines.

                          I was introduced to scratch art through an illustration course in college. Haven't done any since though. The final was to do one image in all the mediums we had covered. (watercolor, watercolor with ink, ink, colored pencil, cut paper) We had I think 2 images to choose from to illustrate. I chose the burger. Don't remember the other choice. This was done with x-acto knife. If I recall almost everyone used that as their scratch tool.

                            Thanks derfs!

                            Your's looks pretty cool! The strokes on the lettuce are really nice and so are the seeds! Interesting assignment, too.

                            This thread is swaying towards food!

                                Thanks cornfed and Kitty!

                                I look at it now and see all kinds of things to improve. The assignment I thought at the time tedious. But there is something cool in seeing the same image done in multiple mediums. Also interesting to see how everyone else handled the same image.
