    The awesomely retro-themed work of @Lydia Nichols has inspired me to put up some of my old mid-century-modern-style artwork.

    Here we have an unused illustration proposal for a thing, done in true continuous line style, that depicts a very stylized U.S. map being enveloped by two hands.

    ATTENTION @Aldrich Tan : MORE HANDS.

    It's intended to evoke happy, gooey, warm n' fuzzy feelings of national togetherness.

    The client totes didn't get it, and refused to see anything but a) an embryo in negative space (down there in the Gulf of Mexico), and b) a fish (the shape of the U.S.).

    Check the 2x thingermabobber if you want a crack at seeing the embryo, too!

    @Aldrich Tan I gotta hand it to you, Aldrich, you really reached me with your punniness.

    Thanks for the kind words. Let me tell you, it took forever to make the continuous line work here. Lots of trial and error to get it right.

    @Javier Garcia Thanks, Javier! Means a lot, considering your penchant for retro-styled artwork.

    Heh, just the other day, I was looking at your biz card you sent me a while ago. Still love that one, man!

    I'm actually researching continuous line logos right now. This is great inspiration!

    @Blake N. Behrens Really appreciate the kind words, Blake. Glad this is inspiring you.

    You should also check out @Von Glitschka . He's a master at continuous line artwork.

    Yessir! I dig Von's work. There was also a russian (name at least) whose continuous line struck me years ago, but I can't for the life of me recall their name now, nor can I find their work. Le sigh...
