My wife was in a women's clothing store doing some shopping and I noticed this horrible conglomeration of scrolls in the window. Scrolls should invoke feelings of flow, harmony, symmetry, etc.

The first word that came to mind was "constipation". :eek:

Maybe I have a small touch of OCD or something like that. I probably shouldn't let it bother me. But, we have such great scroll artists here on the forum... too bad they didn't hire one. Throwing together a mishmash of scrolls of various styles with no direction or purpose...

hey doc, that's the world of "clipart" we live in. people no longer need to be an artist to produce bad work. as a signmaker, i encounter this all the time with the ever popular computer cut vinyl signage. i use this technique, but always try to maintain some sense of what looks good, rather than how much copy can be crammed onto a sign.
