When I thought about this phrase—and I don't know why I thought of it—I felt a lot of pressure from myself to make this a really well- and wisely-designed piece! Oy.

It has its "wise moments," but I could have done a lot of things differently. Overall, I'm happy with it. It's nit picky stuff that bothers me, such as the margin being too small at the top above the word, "DESIGN." But I'm simply not motivated to go back and change it at this point.

Sometime, after I've completed my year's worth of these (only 134 to go!), I hope to select the very best ones and maybe self-publish a little book or deck of cards or set of prints. If I use this one, it will be reworked to some degree.

I guess my point is that design is something that takes a degree of planning and preparation, as well as a process, to come to the completed "product." Since I'm doing one of these per day, there isn't a great deal of that going on... but definitely some. You can probably tell which ones are the most wisely-designed. I know I can.

Happy First Day of the New Year!
