Experiment - 7x7 colour sudoki

Aaaargh... sudoki's (or sudoko's) drive me completely mad and mental. 
My brain just does't understand numbers. 
Especially not when they are a puzzle.

I need and I want to understand how it works, 
so I started colouring my own sudoki's (or sudoko's).

The grid is 7x7 and the outcome looks cool, me thinks. 
Are they all correct? Of course not! 
It took me hours and hours and about 50 grids to understand how the order of colours work.
And I had to make notes, not to forget the order.

Of course I still make mistakes. 
So what! It's the proces that is so enjoyable.

What makes it very interesting is changing colours and see what the outcome is. 

Love rhythms and repetitive patters ;)

Mail Art IN - France, Raphael'L

This collage from Raphael'L, France, is full of surprises. 
Some creature is hiding it's face under a bleu bag, 
but if you look closely, you can see a face anyway! And I do not mean the broom ;) 
The background of the card itself is a mixed media mix. 

Thank you, Rapael'L

Mail Art IN - Germany, Erni Bär

Jawohl! Unmistakenly a Erni Bär / Haptic WereWolf / Off Scene Akademie Hamburg collage. 
Lot's of UHU was involved, I guess. 
Nostalgic yellow 'Deutsche Post' sign in the right corner.

Erni's collages always have a back and front. 
This one could be the poster for the new James Bond movie. 
Who knows... James might encounter some blue-rabbit-like-creatures from the future.

Thank you, Erni.

This is Tucker, Jon Foster's friend. 
He lost his body and Jon needs help to give hime a new one. 
Nice idea. Wonder what Tucker's reaction is. 

Already a lot of Mail Artists have given Tucker a new/more body. 
I am looking forward to an online gallery with the results. 

Thank you, Jon.
