This week I want to talk about Framed ink (affiliate link) by Marcos Mateu-Mestre.
This is a book many artist have recommended on their websites and as soon as I've glanced through its pages I understood why: the illustrations in the book are amazing and the more I read the book the more amazing they became.
Marcos uses this illustrations to guide us through his thinking process, from the thumbnails he uses to compose his shots to the story each of his drawings tells the audience.
What amazed me the most is his unique way of capturing a certain atmosphere by drawing in chiaroscuro. The author says: ''Let's tend to use simplicity, shadows, and silences as opposed to an avalanche of details, so they can experience them in their own way. ''
I want to link this quote to the extract from my thesis where I also write about the importance of the individual experience and understanding of art which results in a more subjective visual communication between a certain artwork and the story behind it.
I encourage you to share your thoughts in the comments below
