Bootcamp #05

In this week's assignment is inspired by chairs - to create an art that we think best represent who I am.

At the start of the week, I saw a fabric design while riding the train that got me experimenting with "combi perspective" - showing both the side and front view at the same time. So, I doodled my chairs, and the wing chair has always attracted me though I do not own one.

Bootcamp Assignment #05

When I sat down to work on this, I experimented again - Chinese ink with chopstick, and also drawing a little larger than I am usually comfortable with.

I quite liked the uneven-ness and just tried out a few pieces this way, except for the one with a coloured background.

Here are the 4 pieces I submitted:

I liked the coloured piece the most.

How do these represent me?
- enjoy word-play and puns (and somewhat lame humour): wing chair!
- seem to be in a rush while at rest
- a (hidden) desire to spread my wings of creativity

Yet another fun assignment. Only one last one.

Also putting this up for Illustration Friday's theme: Hurry!
