After posting Positive Signs #1–33 last year, I completed drawings #34–60. To archive the entire series to Open Space, I’ll post the remaining drawings every other Tuesday through September.
Positive Signs is a series of interpretive diagrams, quotes, and speculations on creativity, optimism, with brief forays into the nature of space, stuff, experience, and cognition. Positive Signs #34–60 include looks at flow, hope, subjective well-being, passion, and aesthetic experience.
