  2. Great illustration. How many times do you see the word 'safe'. Count them. You should get twenty.
    Very original idea.

  4. I've been thinking about just the right time to use a "board game" idea for an illustration, but not yet. I'm not sure if a the board game served up your idea, but I must say the words you choose were fun to read, and absolutely made me think about that you had to say!

    I think of shawdows darting around corners here. Fascinating idea and image!

  9. Safe indeed! The concept is unique and interesting. The design is almost like a puzzle to me too, or an amazing figure / ground experiment. This could make a wonderful board game........

  12. Well, this is certainly well thought out. I like the idea of including all these thoughts in a grid with minimal imagery. Powerful words all.

  15. I didn't realize "safe" was a fridge. But, of course it is ,the way I painted it. I like your interpretation better than that of an actual safe which is what I had in mind.

  16. You're right - safe is a lot, good and bad! You made me think - what a hard thing to do a tuesday evening!

    Thanks anyway for dropping down my blog.

  17. Great concept. I like how some of the phrases step out of the boundaries of their safe little boxes.

  18. This concept works really well - there's a kind of progression as you work across the board. The whole idea of little square boxes all arranged like this (board game aside) is an inspired composition for this topic. The pictures really add as well.

  23. You always come up with the most interesting interpretations, this is no exception, I thought this looked like a brainstorm crossword puzzle. Safe is a four letter word is my favorite.

    Have a nice week!
