This issue of Ornament magazine gives us all a boost. Not only are Ford/Forlano on the cover, but the magazine is full of our ilk…Winters, Dustin, Friesen, Van Helmert and some I've missed I'm sure (let me know if you spot them).

I'm not sure I understand the article about Ford/Forlano but I'm sure glad it's there and I have great respect for their work. I catch myself saying, "I remember when they were all about grids and tubes and cartoon colors" as I read that they've evolved from Nietzsche and Dionysus. So be it. I must have missed something along the way.

I'm awfully proud that our craft has attained such lofty heights. I love to thumb through the magazine and punch in all the web addresses. It's a great education.

          Whatever you missed about F&F, I did too — but back then they were CityZen Cane, so maybe that’s the difference! (Once they became “Ford & Forlano” instead, THEN they were shaped by the great mystic forces of philosophy!! Think!? ) ;^) Hey, whatever works for them! (Me — I still enjoy my pastel colored faux mosaic egg that they made.)

            I went out to look for this issue of Ornament magazine and I found that the last issue is still on the stand? Maybe the east coast is behind the times?
