I’m not sure what it’s called and have even less of a clue what it represents. But it’s quite a civilised thing to look at over a tuna mayo sandwich.
There’s something about drawing tables in illustrator that brings out the anal perfectionist in me. It used to be the same with reports in access, endless fascinated hours nudging lines about by fractions of a millimetre. I’m trying to distance myself from work involving databases now, if only because i seem to work for a lower class of boss when i get them. Besides, anal attention to how something looks is more appropriate to a graphics related job.
