Layer Tennis is always a competition, but it doesn’t have to be a fight.
With contrasting talents/taste/abilities, we sometimes see matches where the volleys are attempts to force the match in a direction the other player doesn’t want to go. With Thomas and Weaver, though, I think we’re seeing a tacit agreement on the direction and tone for the match.
I love the look of Weaver’s return here. The colors, the line art illustration, the arrows — they feel right in line with the woodtype “iDEAS” from the volley. But what I like even better: it’s a response to the serve that, rather than adding new words, simply takes away most of the words from the serve. Ideas are a form of telepathy — they move from one brain to another.
