A Moment in Line delves into the art of line, fusing traditional drawing techniques with modern digital tools to bring sketches to life. By utilising intersecting lines, shading, and texture, it replicates the look and feel of pencil, biro, and ballpoint, capturing the energy and imperfections of hand-drawn sketches and imbuing each piece with a raw and expressive quality.
The project explores the potential of digital tools to enhance and expand upon traditional techniques and pushes the boundaries of what can be achieved with line, creating pieces that pulse with energy and life. The use of familiar shapes like squares, rectangles, circles, and triangles adds to the artwork's organic feel and demonstrates the interplay of form and line. The colours, whether minimal or playful, serves to enhance the visual impact of each piece.
Minimal colour schemes emphasise the line work and create a sense of simplicity and elegance, while the use of playful colours add vibrancy and energy. Ultimately, both approaches work to elevate the hand-drawn feel and create a unique visual experience. In addition to colour and line, the project also utilises scale to create depth and dimension in each piece. By manipulating the size of elements, it creates a sense of spatial relationships and movement.
The result is a collection of pieces that celebrate the beauty, expressiveness and organic flow of hand-drawn lines.
