As time pass I find it increasingly difficult to find new ways to draw the Creatures.
Ok, I’m the first to admit that my art is very repetitive. I have been drawing, painting, sculpting, vectoring the same Creatures for over 20 years! They have evolved since 1984, but the essence is the same. Their love for big capes and headdresses, their mask-like features, their one-dimensionality, are their trademark features.
In general I have a fascination for repetition, especially in art, mine and others as well. I fill entire notebooks with the same theme, the same Creature, the same motif, done and re-done ad-nauseam.
So I thought I would find drawing a Creature a day, a very easy challenge to accomplish.
Now I am faced everyday by my own limiting rules. What else can I do? Which colours should I use? Which medium?
For last week Creatures I kept the square shape of the previous one, but moved to a more colourful palette, using pencils on paper – simple but always effective.
