Nomad Turned Date Farmer
For two weeks in January I traveled a large loop through Morocco arriving home with over 5,000 photos (and some other fun stuff too).
So when Spoonflower (a print-on-demand fabric company) had “Vintage Postcard” as their weekly design challenge I decided to create my repeating pattern based on some of those photos.
I learned a lot during those two weeks, one being that the current king of Morocco created this thing called Greening the Sahara that says if you take a patch of the Sahara; dig a well; make it green, and keep it that way for 7 years then it’s yours. I met a guy, Muhammed, who did exactly that.
