In this room you can see my recent projects. I hope you like them! If you're curious to see some older stuff, I invite you to dig into the archives!
In these series I try to merge my passion for sketching with illustration, creating some sort of keepsake box for my travel impressions, thus turning them into memories.
I've been asked by a few people if I always draw from nature. If it is possible, I do sketch from nature from the beginning to the very end,
but I also sometimes mix/complete them using photo references. Some of the pictures though, especially illustrations, are pure interpretations of photographs. I tend to use my own travel archives in
most of the cases, if it's not something iconic as common poses/buildings etc - then Google comes helpful. I wouldn't recommend relying on photos completely when learning to draw, but I can't see
anything wrong with using modern technologies.
So I'm sharing new #dogpeopleart pieces with the references I used when creating them.
My attempt to illustrate a good saying that we all are foreigners somewhere, by showing migrants feeding birds, that are themselves
migrants from faraway countries.
There's compassion and care in the gesture of feeding. Most importantly I wanted this methaphor to light up the problem in a positive way, no matter how sad I feel about borders subject sometimes.
