Episode 7 - The Elements

On this episode of the Art Zen podcast, we continue our discussion of the basics. Last time we talked about  "Art / Design Principals", and today we'll be talking about "design elements". These elements (along with the principals) make the foundation of art and design. If you come to know them well, you can apply that into your artwork or graphic design, and it will make them better (in our opinion).
