Ink & Pen by Matthew O’Halloran
This was an illustration that was inspired by social stereotypes and they way we perceive other people around us without knowing them. I wanted to contrast the figure with the doodles that I'd often throw in to give my illustrations a sense of depth and deeper meanings while giving it a visual appeal. I didin't want to clutter the overall aesthetic and went for a less is more approach, using bold colurs and keeping the doodles to a minimum so they were clearly visible to make the contrast between them and the stereotype of the model clearer.
