Anders, I'm impressed with your rendering "the Pointer" can you tell me
what medium you used i.e. computer art using illustrator or photoshop or
old world mediums as acrylics etc. also what is the object in the core
that the fingers are wrapped around? I believe the "Pointer" would make an
excellent poster. A number of years ago a university student came to me
with an idea for a poster, it was a picture of the galaxy and a pointer
with the words "you are here". We (my firm) published his copywrited idea
in several commercial vehicles e.g. posters, post cards, T-shirts, book
covers, framed wall hangings. I believe "The Pointer" with it's subtle
meanings outclasses the "you are here" idea. The "you are here" paid for
his college education and gave him a very nice income for many years, he
relocated to the West coast and I lost track of him but I believe he is
still receiving royalties
