During the process of making these notes, I discovered a meaningful system
for the vignettes:
they represent the
essential components of a functioning community.
are Infrastructure, Commerce,
Homes, and Culture. All communities need to have these five things in order
be a living,
community. In any series of notes, I always try to create a system with an intelligence
or purpose behind the imagery,
and I feel that this system presents universal icons to represent all the
communities that would use this currency.
