“When you approach life as a leaf on the window, life rapidly blows by”
I have a very laid back attitude towards life. I like to take my time and relax rather than stress. This mode is what inspired this mask and charcoal covered illustration. I wanted to captivate how life seems to speed ever onward as I walk through it. I almost feel like a timely wander, always moving forward no mater how bad things seem. I often feel time pass by and moved and weaved the charcoal in and out with a flick of my writs.
In my work I took the elements of line, shape, and form and bent them to my whim as I slices and splashed the page with my charcoal. Using the lines to illustrate the sheer force I feel day in and day out. I tried to put emphasis on the mask so it could stand out most in the piece. I used atmospheric perspective in the piece with the value shift through the piece as the charcoal explodes on the mask.
