Chewbacca Minimalist Art

Chewbacca Minimalist Art

Chewbacca Minimalist Art by Alex Patterson

Chewbacca Art created in Adobe Illustrator. This piece was not quite as straight forward as it looks. I wanted to capture the look and feel of Chewbacca with as little detail as possible. It would have been really easy to add too much fur and really over-work it. I feel I made the right comprimises in the end.

Although a big fan of (Original trilogy) Star Wars. I have, got  one or two questions.

Chewbacca the wookie (he never made the pwofessional grade – sorry!) was Hans engineer and co pilot is surely everyones favourite giant, dog, man creature thing. Question is… How does everyone seems to be able to understand what he says?  Han can fully converse with him despite the grunts and growls. It’s like watching Family Guy but having Brian actually just be a dog.

My other issue regarding Star Wars and Chewbacca is… Why did he not get a medal at the end of the original movie. Everyone else in the main cast gets commended except him. Just seems a bit off to me…. poor doggy!

Harmony Geometric

Harmony Geometric by Ale x Patterson

Harmony Geometric by Alex Patterson

Geometric art titled harmony. Although simple at first glance, there is more complex geometry used than just segmenting a circle. See the image below to see in detail how it was constructed.

Rainy days 1

Rainy Days 1 Geometric Art by Alex Patterson

Rainy Days 1 Geometric Art by Alex Patterson

Simple geometric study of rain drops in puddle on a typically rainy day in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Love how ripples naturally fade as they drift away from their point of origin until no trace remains.

When creating this piece, Great consideration was given to the weight and distance of each line to mirror natures simple complexities.

Rainy Days 2 Geometric Art by Alex Patterson

Rainy Days 2 Geometric Art by Alex Patterson

Not so subtly influenced by umbrella’s viewed from above. Similar to the ripple piece, the concentric shapes are spaced and weighted precicely. Rainy days 2’s lines are intentionally weighted heavier giving it more of an opressive feel. Trapped under the umbrella but safe from the rainy chaos around you.

Three Quarters Geometric Art

I’m not really sure how to decribe this piece (ha!). The 8 concentric circles are symbolic of the usual 8 hour working day. Work for 3/4 hour, tea break for 15 (if no one notices). Although simple rules were used in creating the piece, at first glance it seems almost abstract.

Hidden messages in art intrigue me and i can see many ways in which i could do similar art pieces with a cypher encoded within.

Hex Loop Geometric Art by Alex Patterson

My tool of choice for geometric art has to be Adobe Illustrator. Ideas can quickly be adjusted, tweaked and deconstructed easily and intuitively. Many times I will over work my art and make it too complex. By creating in stages, I can step back or remove elements that are just not necessary to the aesthetic look of the artwork.

The image above, ‘Hex Loop’ went through many variations until I was happy to click save and consider it complete. Sometimes art comes easy, other times it needs to run its course, trial and error until a resolution is found.

I do plan on making some of my geometric art prints available to purchase  on my sound wave art website. http://www.monowaveart.co.uk

Feedback please. Just comment. :)

Radar Geometric Art

Similar to typography, geometrical art should follow certain rules. Spacing, line weight and alignment need to be perfect for it to be completely visually appealing. I wont for a second claim that I follow those rules everytime (rules are there to be broken – right?), but at least i give them some respect when i ignore them.

Heart cubes

Been working on quite a bit lately but not updating on here so brace yourselves for a barrage of random art over the next few weeks. (Sorry!) Hopefully, however some people out there may appreciate some of my art.

Heart cubes

Heart Cubes by Alex Patterson

This geometric piece is basically a stylised, simplified heart.

Always had a thing about isometric boxes ever since my Dad taught me how to correctly use a drawing board with T square and set squares. From that day I immediately had a respect for geometric form.
