This entire past semester I've been working to find how my brain works when creating images and what realm or medium I work best in. What I've discovered is that I work best through the use of shape and subtraction. For a period of time all of my images were made and sketched in cut paper. Then I would bring the cut paper images into illustrator. This naturally took a lot of time. Time I didn't have this past semester. So I started to draw with shape in illustrator like I did with scissors and cut paper. Starting with a large shape and a value structure in mind and then adding other shapes and cutting away with line. The characters below are example of my first try at this. I hope you like them!
