How did you make these? Since I really don’t have a very linear and organized process, I would say that I have no idea how I work! Literally I always start drawing a rectangle in Adobe Illustrator and, according to how it starts to mutate, I play a game with myself trying to figure out what this shape looks like, and then I complete the illustration. I love to save the leftovers of my cut out shape even if they are digital constructions—sometimes they become artwork by themselves.
Why did you make these? I love to explore the geometry of things since you don’t really need a full rendered image of an object to understand it, I feel pretty childish in that sense. I like to play a little with drawing objects with the least elements possible but at the same time it’s very important for me that they have their own spirit. Definitively, architecture as space is a recurrent theme for me. I love the ambiguity that produces the idea to map a space with 4 or 5 flat shapes in the illustration.
What do people typically say about your work? That I love to draw girls with smooth hair!
