a história da minha vida
thoughts, art, design, photography, emotions, venting, declarations, memories, reminders and oh so much more. the inner workings of my mind will surely prove to be a complexity that no one would think to venture into.
this blog is all about stuff that i see, like, love, feel or create.
so hello there. the name is manolia.
i am: a graphic designer/thinker/all-round-organized mess, going through an identity crisis (born in mumbai, raised in dubai)
and yes... i am a little odd.
Starting from roman letters, drawn by hand, I took the inspiration of arabic and persian calligraphy to create the letters through the defined borders of the roman letters. The rigor of the roman letters are nicely seduced by the curves of the calligraphic pen.
Opalized wood. Petrified wood is basically fossilized wood that has had it’s organic matter replaced by a mineral such as agate, bit by bit, as it decomposes. The wood structure is maintained, but the wood fibers are slowly changed into stone. Sometimes a jasper, quartz, pyrite or even opal(shown above) can be found fossilized in wood.
