As we approach groundbreaking (pray for a good concrete pouring day), we have continued work on the Skinny Project’s distinguishing feature . . . House Tattoos. The strategy for the tattoos remains very similar to what was discussed in Brian Phillips recent post, but we have made some considerable changes to the content. The goal is a move toward more abstraction and hopefully a design less attached to a specific time or place.
Whatever design we eventually settle upon will still be executed by the artist and silk screening guru Candy Depew. She will print the design on our fiber cement panels which will then likely be clear coated to protect the work. We plan to document her progress so be sure to stay tuned for plenty of pictures and videos.
Below are a few recent design ideas that we like. Take a look and let us know what you think. We need to make a final decision in the next week, and your input would be greatly appreciated.
As usual, I have my favorite, but I’ll keep it to myself until the readers have spoken. Let us know which design you think should be featured on our next three homes.
Do it in the comments.
If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.
There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.
