Abstract Poster Series

  • _ABSTRACT POSTER SERIES


    Background

    I go through phases of creative’s block (my version of writer’s block), when my self-critic gets in the way because creativity will flow otherwise. When this happens, I wrestle with this blocked energy that can build up over time, and I will need to step away from the process of creating in order to give my head some space and time to breathe. 

    Outcome

    As a solution, this ongoing poster series is an outlet for my visual ideas, allowing me to purge myself of the colors, designs, and patterns that build up in my head. ​​​​​​​The outcomes are often chaotic and explosive, which I think accurately represents my state of mind when creating these visuals below. Each poster starts off as a hand-drawn illustration or pattern, that is then manipulated and edited in both Photoshop and Illustrator. 
  • Each poster design starts off as an elaborate doodle or pattern drawn with pens and sharpies.
