the sharpie effect

by jolevitan



when i was young i used one rule of thumb with my artwork, outline in black. it made my average flower, bubble letter, traced disney character pop off the page and look somewhat decent. i take this life lesson and run with it for bathroom decor. that black outline makes my jaw drop. granted these are all majestical spaces to brush your teeth but those black accents seem as if a decorator waved their tasteful wand and screamed “let there be life!”
