1-06. deep-laid


About the illustration
This is my interpretation of deep-laid. Deep-laid scheme is an elaborate scheme, which makes me think of an elaborate web of deceit. The illustration is of dark gloved hands manipulating a web.

Another interpretation of mine was a giant pair of hands which was ‘hovering’ above a city… but that’s too normal.

Vector. Pen tool in Adobe Illustrator CS.

Hit counter.

Page 214, entry 7: 
deep-laid –
adj. (of a scheme) secret and elaborate.

Personal opinion (about the entry)
… elaborate?!

    The deep-laid plan to destroy all insane teachers was well underway, and there was nothing in the world to stop it.

    Deep-laid sounded to me like some kind of cooking term. Like deep fried. LOL. Or maybe I’m just thinking to much about my own systems project. :p Deep-laid. Like a coffin. Or being buried in musty-frusty soil. Or, I am an egg, deep-laid in an egg-box… *cuts shari off* (she’s sick currently, so excuse her).

    To SHa.,

    Haha. You know, initially, when I saw the entry, the deep part was totally blurred off in my mind so I only saw ‘laid’, as in getting laid. Lol. And I have to draw my interpretation of the entry PLUS the actual meaning so.. D;

    Hope your system’s coming along great :D (And are you really sick? Please get some rest! I already fear your system before you’re unwell. Lol, j/k. But seriously, do take care of yourself, Shar~ :D)

    And thanks for your interpretation ;D

    Hey hey nice project you got going on here~ *thumbsup* Like the web element. Manages to potray the sort of deeply-laid sticky image (for lack of better term) to me. Personally, the first thing that conjures up in my mind about the term is the image of thoughts deep inside the human psyche. Kinda hard to explain but I hope you get the idea :)

    ”Another interpretation of mine was a giant pair of hands which was ‘hovering’ above a city… but that’s too normal.”

    To Nrz and renchan,

    Nrz, really appreciate it :D When you get into ADM, you’ll be doing projects like this so look forward to them! :D Nice interpretation of my illustration! And yeah, I get your idea but whoa, it’s complicated, isn’t it :D (which is good.) It’d be lovely if you could do an illustration *grins* Thanks for the comment and the interpretations! :D

    renchan, ハハ、そうか。さっきの絵はもっといいと思う、けど良かったじゃない。でも、サンキュー(^▽^)~
    But if you really remembered wrongly, then it’s okay ;D Hehe. And thanks for your commnent~!! *muacks*

    It’s just a theory that if everyone acts in his own interests in any one society, the society as a whole would act as if an invisible hand was guiding them because everything works out… more or less…

    IF I remember correctly XP

    だから、手のイメージがありませんよ~ へへ

    To renchan,

    Oh, I should elaborate about the ‘giant hands hovering over the city’ bit. It’s not to guide the city, but to conquer it. I read too much fantasy XDD

    And that’s so… cheem. Haha.
