As a graphic designer i am always interested in type and letterform. I simply love the the idea of the pencils drawing the words but not with the leads but with their long intertwined twisted forms. the colouring of the pencils give the  words a 3D affect and the bold stricking colours immediately draw my attention. it was only when taking a second glance i realised what the image was actually made of. it  was a plesently surprising and clever idea for me.

Illustration renaissance

I found this illustration on the net. It is a piece to start an article which begs the question 

“Illustration is in demand and everyone wants a piece of the action. How and why has this happened and is it here to stay? Lawrence Zeegen investigates…”

My reasons for choosing to put this image on my blog is because i like the use of space within the image. there is no negative space within the image, which has cramed the internal images together, which challenges the viewer to have to decifer the contents of illustaration and break it down so that it can be digested.

I also like the use of colour and tonal values which harmonise in this image which brings the caos of it all to a calm reserved piece of artwork. it is truely a piece where you have to read between the lines in my opinion.

Stumbling through the internet I found this

When searching the net for illustrations i managed to stumble accross this interesting piece of art. This was on a web site promoting a one man managed company called BechBox.

“The main purpose of BechBox is to provide exciting but useable interactive design for web, cd-rom and applications, but I do photography, retouching, graphic design for print, music scores, soundtracks, music compositions and music production as well.”

This image intreagues me because it can almost be classed as, its imaginative and creative and makes the solid seem liquified, and the real unreal. even if i don’t fully understant the image, i question myself , do i need to understand an image to appreciate it? i don’t think so.
