PEACE CND
PEACE CND
using my father Eric Austens design, First Cnd Badges Eric Austen By Geaausten-d1qlb3d by GeaAusten which I watched him do hundreds of times.. x .. xInfluenced by my father Eric Austen,,IN 1958, the black and white ... Someone asked me if I had ever put the CND sign in one of my designs//I have once,, but I have a very different attitude to it than I think a lot of peope would expect, My father was a real Purist,, he loved simplicity, and black and white, FIRST PEACE, CND, BADGE ERIC AUSTEN by GeaAusten ,. when the whole Peace movement developed,, many years later, he absolutely winced at what was done to the sign ,, the embellishments of all kinds.. so I think I have copied him, we were extremely close,, and I worshipped him.. he taught me to draw and paint ,, from when I was three,, and we used to sit together when he was making his pottery and talk about what he would do next.. and different designs etc. I have always felt the simplicity of the design is very beautiful,,, and enough in itself.. I'm glad the Peace movement have embraced the sign, and that people have made it their own.. the extraordinary popularity of the design is due to something I believe is quite sacred ... Gea Austen.

I really like your design. I also would love to see it as a repeat pattern I think it would work really well.
