In 2014 the sci-fi action film "Lucy" starring Scarlett Johansson was marketed worldwide with a line of dialogue stating, "IT IS ESTIMATED MOST HUMAN BEINGS ONLY USE TEN PERCENT OF THEIR BRAIN'S CAPACITY." The titular Lucy, an augmented superhuman, evidently uses more than ten percent brain power. By the film's end, Lucy transcends her humanity by transferring her entire consciousness onto a flash drive.
Obviously this was terrible marketing, as we most definitely use more than ten percent of our brain power every second. Because I definitely used more than ten percent brain power to gather work from my own flash drives and showcase a variety of personal illustrations and collages I make in my spare time.
As of this writing I have not seen "Lucy." But here's a look at where my brain goes when I'm not making client-based work.
My illustration practice comes from constant self-teaching,inspiration, and influence from my favorite creatives, new tools and styles, and the events and culture that shape my daily life.
Here is a mix of personal pieces, commissions, and explorations.
Random photos in my iPhone camera roll, scanned film from my family's past, to provoking images in used books. Various elements form these digital collages. It's an exercise to help practice different processes outside my formal design background and reconsitute the narrative-to-image relationship I'm used to absorbing.
