Illustration Friday prompt is paisley. And I... dislike paisley. Rather a lot, really. Not in its original Indian form -- some of that paisley work can be amazing -- but in the horribly gaudy way that it's often used in Western cultures. It's almost a gut reaction with me. Too many flashbacks to bad polyester 70s caftans or things like that, maybe.
Anyway, I decided that the best way for someone like me to do paisley would be to ransack a closet, grab a tie, and in tribute to my father (who dislikes ties almost as much as I dislike paisley), heap it in a fairly unceremonious pile. And there you have it.
Happy Father's Day, Dad.
