This postcard shows a blind contour drawing that Julian drew. One of the first activities Julian did for one of his first design classes was a blind contour drawing, and it represents the joy of embracing the ambiguity and unpredictability of the design process. Julian isn’t able to fully see the process, but it’s fun, and he always ends up liking his drawings in the end, even if they look grotesque. The sunset gradient in the background contrasts with the roughness of the blind contour, offering a sense of smooth transition like the cascading nature of the ideal project envelope.
