Calligraphic Enigma: CALL FOR ENTRIES

Calligraphic Enigma
...where magic lines meet. "Whence did the wondrous mystic art arise of
painting speech and speaking to the eyes, that we, by tracing magic lines are
taught, how to embody and how to color thought."  - William Massey
   We hope you will ponder familiar lines and submit work whose magic
transcends the orthodox and speaks to the wider artistic community. If
entranced by the ephemeral and trying to communicate beyond the strictly
orthodox, share your painted speech and non-verbal lines with us. The
ingenuity of design should draw the viewer to enigmatic wonder at the
artistic execution. If you are a graphic designer who combines speaking to
the eyes of the consumer and incorporating the magic lines of letterforms and
calligraphy, share your magic with us.
