My aim is to create a series of simple line work musicians portraits.
Compared with “speaking” with portraits in classical paintings, people are much more prone to communicate with comic-inspired forms. After conducting some interviews and research among people of my age, the assumption holds.
When creating those portraits in Adobe Illustrator, I decided to keep them really minimalism, devoid of preferences towards any of the musicians I drew.
I find simplicity explains complexity. I value the philosophy that “Less is more” since a very simple line, curve or straight, can convey a powerful feeling to the audience.
