154. T. KRISHNAMACHARYA: Yoga poster
Bit of a change up this week. After I do a really long comic like last week’s Phenomenal Woman, I’m totally drained and it feels like some of my life force has evaporated into the ether. The last thing I want to do is pick up the pencil and draw another lengthy strip. So this week I decided to just draw something fun without using too much brainpower and also play with typography, something I haven’t done in awhile.
My brother recently opened a new yoga studio in Perth (check it out if you live in the area) so I asked him to send me some yoga quotes and I would design a poster as a gift he could hang in the new digs. He insisted I do a quote from T. Krishnamacharya (1888-1989) who was a revered yogi, healer, scholar and the ‘father of modern yoga’. So that’s what I did. While I know nothing about yoga, I have recently taken my first baby steps with trying meditation and it would do me good to remember Krishnamacharya’s words when I’m trying to focus on my breathing and quieten my hyperactive brain.
I’ve made the poster available in two versions, the blue design above and a pink variant.
