Statement: I wanted to play with contrast of different polar extremes and themes. I used to highly geometric style to illustrate natural creatures. The line work is done traditionally using a ballpoint pen, and the color is done digitally with Illustrator vectors. A paper texture is layered behind these digital compositions.
Process: I began by illustrating arbitrary animals in an intentionally flat, 2 dimensional, and graphic style, using mostly geometric shapes. With a range of differently shaped and differently originating animals, I then picked out animals by theme, and colored them using vectors in Illustrator. The textures in the backgrounds are scans of hand pressed papers.
