The Economist...

This was an absolutely wicked brief. Although i didn't really take that much to the concepts of the article, the process of creating elements and nurturing my designs was thoroughly captivating and enjoyable. Even though we have been spanked into relieving the focus of working in a distinctive style, in order for myself to really claw my creativity into this project i concentrated on taking influence from David Hughes. He tends to construct his illustrations with multiple elements and subjected layers. I took the tool of initiating more textural parts to fill the compositions. All in all, i think they turned out pretty well but the only negating aspect is the lack of communication alongside the text.

Yoshitomo Nara...

Yoshitomo Nara is a miraculous artist. He liberates me tremendously. He holds a gentle warmth within his work but also magnifies a bellowing aggression discordantly.  I find myself narcissistic to his characters. They are innocently and emotionally translucent, haunting with smug eyes and unclear intentions. Frightfully endearing. 

My desire is to create canvases in a similar manner.
