2021: Restore & Rebuild Our World

Restore health.

Rebuild the economy.

Restore social­iz­ing.

Rebuild lives.

Let’s restore & rebuild to make our plan­et & its peo­ple even bet­ter than it was pre-pandemic.

Concept & Design

There is only one con­cept for the com­ing year. We must wipe out the virus and rebuild the world. 

But the con­cept for the design of Amper­Art 167 Restore & Rebuild is meld­ing the numer­als of the year with the words that will define 2021.

The back­ground start­ed out as the floor­print we’ve seen all over the place for social dis­tanc­ing 6 feet apart. I toyed with it, and real­ized it looks like riv­ets. How appro­pri­ate, to sym­bol­ize, although abstract­ly, Rosie the Riveter.

The col­ors were inspired by Pan­tone Col­ors of the Year 2021. That’s right, they intro­duced 2 new col­ors again this year. We could prob­a­bly use an extra hun­dred or so, to wipe out the dark­ness of the past year. But these two col­ors, Illu­mi­nat­ing and Ulti­mate Gray, are a beau­ti­ful com­bi­na­tion for this design. The yel­low is tru­ly upbeat as the sun’s glow at dawn, and the gray is a beau­ti­ful com­ple­ment. (I think I know what col­or I’m going to repaint my studio.)

Happy New Year 2021

  1. If every­one stays put & wears a mask & gets vac­ci­nat­ed (or 2 out of 3), yes, opti­mistic. I have an Amper­Art edi­tion ready to go as soon as we can be with each oth­er in per­son. It’s called #166 Come & Visit.
