“Shapes of Conscious” by HABBENINK – The Art of Giving Life to Simple Shapes!

 
 

Shapes of Conscious‘ is a creative experiment by Salt Lake City-based illustrator HABBENINK (David Habben) where he turns a simple line drawing into a whimsical character illustration without altering its original shape. He starts off by drawing a simple shape without putting much thought into the final outcome. Once the shape is done, he starts filling it with complex line drawings, giving life to a unique and whimsical character that develops a story of its own. “The idea here is to get out of my own way, to let the drawing develop itself without forcing it into a desired narrative or purpose” says the artist.
