14 February 2008. It was twenty years ago today.
In February of 1988 I was in college and single. Since I had no one special to share Valentine's Day with, I decided to give an anonymous long-stemmed red rose to each of my close female friends. I smuggled the flowers into the dorm and taped them to the appropriate doors in the small hours of the night.
This was the logo I designed for the card that accompanied each rose. I was inspired by the typography of Roger Dean, as I am to this day:
I painted a T-shirt for the occasion, shown in the image at the top of this page.
