The Geometry of Sport

It's easy to find yourself in a rut, doing the same kind of work repeatedly. This can be a good thing to refine your work and create a body of illustration work in a consistent style. But sometimes you want to shake it up and push in new directions. I found myself in that place a few weeks back and started exploring. I really enjoy trying to find the geometry in shapes and compositions and I wanted to explore ways to get my work to be more dynamic and to get more comfortable with the human figure. I looked to some of the heroes of my youth as subject matter because not only do I feel a personal connection, but they allow me to study that geometry and energy. I'll be posting new studies here as I go and see where this thing goes.
