Lent is starting exceptionally early this year: As of today and until the day after Good Friday (Karfreitag) I am going to give up alcohol, meat and sugar. To give this decision a more festive appeal, you’ll find a little Lent logo on each day’s post in between. I also won’t break fasting on Sundays – that’s just a self-imposed extra rule, as it does not make sense to me to give something up and then find a way around one’s own decision.
So here is the full-size version of the logo: created the quick and dirty way, using two types of readily available Photoshop brushes (autumn leaves and grass). The colour swatches, however, are taken from an original Lent altar cloth in Gröden, Tyrol, which was made around 1630. I admit it looks very autumny, a bit out of season;-)
