I have already done one Peter Max afghan.
But when I saw an American Express gift card with this "falling man" design on it, I HAD to do another Peter Max afghan with this design too.
When I took this photo yesterday, the sun was so blazing hot out and the colors looked different in the two front shot photos I took so here's the second photo.
Here's a photo of the picture that I graphed at Microrevolt to make the afghan with...
So, I found out there are/were three Peter Max designs for American Express cards. Naturally, this one, (my fave), doesn't seem to be available anymore. Why am I always the last person to find out about cool things?
Anyway, the other two are the Running Man and the Love ones.
I think this falling man image is from an Earth Day; Every Day poster of Peter Max's
I think it's the perfect design for a credit card.
I see it as me - falling into debt. LOL!!!!
(Hence, the title "Maxed Out" for this afghan!)
Anyway, the afghan is tunisian crocheted with a size J cabled afghan hook.
The yarns are either I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby or Red Heart yarn.
For the sun, I used two colors of a sparkly yarn called Bella. I'm not sure you can see the sparkliness in the photos.
In case you missed the first Peter Max afghan I made a couple of years ago, here's the link to that post here at Craftster.http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=308322.0
