Progression of a Motif.

 

There has been a definite progression of one aspect of my drawing / design, it is the eyes.

I am consistently drawn to the face, from realism through to abstract forms, I find the face fascinating. 

As I progress though different story telling phases and motif designs, I have developed a stylized eye shape.  I initially began with a broad crescent and circle, incredibly simple and out of proportion for the realistic face shape, at that time I was focused on developing a unique style.  It gave my drawings / figures a ghoulish appearance.  Now the eye I draw is still stylized, but closer in portrayal to the actual human eye.  It better suits the current imagery that I am exploring, as well as being adaptable to the mediums I am working across (print, paint and ceramic).
