Individual Project



Research ︎



I interviewed Joshua to discover what his interests and general vibe for before I started sketching.

He sometimes wishes it was possible for someone to look inside his head, because he can feel misunderstood.




Although he’s mostly quiet and a little awkward, the inside of his head is a fast,
chaotic car chase overlayed with jazz.


His sketchbooks are filled with dynamic figures and city scapes.


In ten years, he hopes to live by himself and drive a car.




Icons & Illustrations


The resulting images were high contrast and used energetic lines. I played with texture as well, creating a bitmap mouse in motion.




Collage


Afterwards, I quickly made two collages for fun, with the same interview notes.
