Never throw away boxes with old sketches

My workplace isn’t short of boxes with scraps and sketches of ideas that never got beyond the daydream stadium. Eventually I managed to rework this idea into a programme poster for a choir.

Most sketches in this book are made years ago during lost moments in a few minutes without any particular purpose in mind.

  1. eelco,
    the pencil strokes are visually enigmatic. i can find the architectural technique here, the shadows, the perspective view, the foregrounding and background, evidently under an expert’s hand. such, such intelligent composition of an artwork, well-thought out.

  2. Hi Marvin,

    Once again thanks for your kind and uplifting comment. In fact, the Quadimoso sketch is one of a series I did in an attempt at creating a story board for a short animation, quite some time ago. The project never made it beyond sketches. That was at a time when there was mostly cell-animation, and software was prohibitively expensive and cumbersome. Times have changed. Now I think I will have a go at it with Adobe After Effects.

    Cheers,

    E.
