I am off into the wilderness for the week on a lo-tech cabin based vacation (not so low tech as we will be without indoor plumbing or air conditioning!) with my mother and father. I am only taking my Holga 120N and a bunch of expired film. I can't wait to go grocery shopping at a Piggly Wiggly ("The Pig" as the locals call it)!

Moopers lent me the most amazing fashion book: OFF THE WALL, Fashion From East Germany 1964 to 1980. Fashion from behind the Iron Curtain? YES! We both fell in love with the design shown below on the left - the white text on a red tank top. To die!
I decided to recreate the design myself so we can make our own...
Step One: Pencil sketch on graph paper.
Step Two: Ink version onto copy paper.
Step 3: Fix mistakes and check line continuity for scanning.
To Be Continued...

From the original instruction pamphlet:
"WHAT IS ZIRIYA?
ZIRIYA is a social fun game of the mind.
ZIRIYA is a silent computer-like MESSAGE BOARD with a MESSAGE POINTER. When the pointer glides around the Board, it points out TELEGRAM-LIKE MESSAGES CONSISTING OF ONE OR SEVERAL KEY-WRODS, LETTERS, NUMBERS AND SYMBOLS. Sometimes full sentences are obtained. The Players and Observers concentrating co-coperatively create a Mental Energy State called the HUMAN BATTERY CIRCUIT, through which ZIRIYA operates. Playing Ziriya refelcts your state of mind and often reveals your own wishful thinking."
- Ziriya loves yelling.
- Ziriya is a verb and a noun.
- Ziriya may be H.A.L. + SKYNET + WOPR combined. (If you, dear reader, get all of those references I, give you a mental energy salute!)
- Ziriya uses our souls for energy.
- Ziriya was most likely invented by H.P. Lovecraft
- Ziriya is self aware.
- Ziriya likes red pistachios.
