During my holidays I want to play around with outlines of my favourite things and shapes to create minimalistic patterns. I needed a break from conceptualizing everything and just draw a thing or two purely for the fun and aesthetic of it. This is the first two I’ve made in a hopefully ever growing series. See Gulls was inspired by a photo that I took on the coast of Morocco of a huge flock of birds trying to catch their supper. There were so many in fact, that they practically covered up the ocean that flowed behind them. It’s a vivid memory that I will always love. I plan on printing this series on a long thin strip of paper and then block printing the original photo atop different segments of the pattern.
Move those buns!
Here’s a drawing I did a couple months ago while trying out different materials and digital apps. I’m slowly learning to mix my materials more often. With this drawing I thought it’d be fun playing with irony and the idea of fast food and it’s detrimental effects on the body. What if it benefited us in the same way that it’s described, lending us a boost of speed for example. I Would love to keep playing with this style/idea and expand it into a series or comic one day.

Eventually things will come full circle and each shape will have helped complete the puzzle:
-The triangle is known to be the strongest shape, but sometimes even it needs support from it’s friends. Rotate!
-Sometimes other shapes can help hold the circle in place. Keep the ball rolling but try to avoid the downhills. Rotate!
-Squares can help things stay even and balanced. Keeping the other shapes in line. Rotate!
-The pentagon makes sure it’s friends are safe, trying to protect and shelter them from multiple angles. Rotate!
