I’m getting ready to print a new edition next weekend. I’ve prepped the screens and now begin the arduous task of color selection. I have some ideas in my head, but oftentimes what I think might work in theory, ends up looking wrong in execution. So I’ll pursue a bunch of options this week and narrow them down as the weekend approaches. Color combinations that I’ll scrap one day, I’ll revisit the next, then debate for a few days more.
The odd thing is I love color. You’d think that it would be a breeze, but it’s just not. It’s an uphill battle the whole way. Sometimes it’s torturous. Other times it’s excruciating. Rarely is it easy. You have to pay for your pleasure, I suppose.
But coming out the other side and selecting that perfect combination is such a thrilling feeling. You just know it when you see it. It just feels right. I’m looking forward to that moment this coming weekend. Fingers crossed.
