ARt NoUVeau

Start with a line.
Think organic. Think plant. Think growing, stretching, elegant movement, smooth, silky, flowing.
Think weaving, intertwined.
Think follow.
Think beauty, elegant, mysterious.
Now draw.

Flow and fluidity were very important to the design of these posters. This did not go unrecognized by the poster makers of the late 60's art posters, made famous by the Filmore concerts and a group of artists called Family Dog.
