The Renaissance Man

Last week I had to prioritize, because two big events took place on the same day. Fun seeking little me chose to focus on Tivoli’s opening. But this week I will make up for ignoring the other. Thursday was the birthday of (in my opinion) one of the greatest men of all times:

This Renaissance Man – in every sense of the word – would have turned 558 this year, but didn’t make it past 67. However, in those 67 years he accomplished more than anyone could ever imagine, in more fields of work than any other. I don’t think he needs any further introduction, but if your knowledge about him is limited, you can check out this site.

Today an the rest of the week I will be posting material inspired by Da Vinci and made from his paintings, drawings and sketches. Today it’s an Alpha made from his famous drawing “The Vitruvian Man”. I must warn you though. As the label on the preview says, nude male genitals are visible on the drawing and therefore on some of the letters in the alpha. But since it is art, I took the chance and didn’t “cover it up”. Can you forgive me?

These freebies are no longer available.
Check my store - they might be there.

Please come back tomorrow for more Da Vinci.
