_ABSTRACT POSTER SERIES
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.
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.
