Sometimes the best ideas just hit you over the head out of nowhere, and really are quite simple. Such is the case with my beloved Palm Tree smile artwork, photo/design/ whatever you want to call it.
If you happen to get the SWELL catalog this month, a post card, that you can keep around as a smile inducer, juuuuust might happen to fall out, surprise you as you turn the pages, or arrive in your mailbox if you have a cool thoughtful friend who wants to brighten your day.
So, I figured I’d let you all in on the story behind the design that’s been making the rounds. Because I kind of love it.
In Hawaii, the beach park by my house had a gorgeous palm tree (one of the tall skinny swaying ones) that I’d go sit under after a long day, or just to take a nap, read a book, etc. I always took a bunch of pics of it, especially at sunset, because it would be a perfect silhouette. The tree (and palm trees in general) made me smile. Then I realized, in the pics where it was just the tree, well, heck it could double as the letter i. The tree made me smile, it’s also an i. Yhatzee, we have a winner. I made the graphic and posted it. No more lonely palm tree pic, and instead it’s something that is making people smile all over.
Which I absolutely love.
