Liz Danzico's Layer 4 Commentary

Well, Hello Newman

In the spirit of cyberpunk meets double rainbows, we're seeing the narrative continue. The hued shine in the last layer is now expertly continued here in Number 4. A shine now spills over onto the canvas, cyberpunk meets rainbow.

Over here at Layer Tennis HQ, we're chatting near the velvety booth about Elaine. How I used to be mistaken for Elaine. How I dance like Eliane. How I might have been a bit too much like Elaine back in the 1980s. Some of the that, friends, may have crept into my interpretation of what is clearly Newman (thanks @simonsillems).

But even if you think one might be Elaine, or Newman, or consider one thing over another, keep on writing. Keep on designing. You can edit later. These fringe benefits to self doubt make one a good editor or a better designer:

Self-doubt. It's always good, before changing something, to stop and wonder if this is a mistake or if the writer did this for a reason. When you've read a piece five or more times, it is tempting to believe that it must be perfect, but you have to stay alert for anything you might have missed. Eternal vigilance!

Indeed. (Or, perhaps, Right on?) Either way, I'm doubting my speed a bit here in this commentary (waving at the sidelines!), but that's a good thing. Let's see what you think, Layer Tennis friends, for the next round.
