Cloth, Paper, Scissors article

I'm excited to see my article about using prompts to spark design ideas in the upcoming Sept/Oct. Cloth, Paper, Scissors. They did a beautiful job with the layout and the photos, so I'm very pleased with the final results.


These are a couple of the pieces in the article:



You can read about the process of using prompts here, and more in the article of course.

Congratulations...! I´ve not done much so far with the ones you so kindly shared with me - I´ve the ambition to tape each one on a small index card, to be able to use them card-play style, but, as you well know, there a many - by now I´ve managed about 50%...

Wonderful that you have an inspiring article published in CPS! I had one a couple of years ago, so know just how thrilling it is...and what a lot of work it takes to get it all ship-shape. This idea of random prompts is quite brilliant. And I love the piece you used to illustrate how you used them!

Congratulations! Clearly deserved.
