The New Race



The new race, compillation of characters, 2016-2020

Character development is quite natural thing and it just happens while you tend to be busy with some other ‘grand’ artistic plans. The idea behind this was to collect all the characters from all the sketchbooks and make a small parade out of them. 
Moreover after they were put onto one page, the relationships between them appeared sometimes out of nowhere. In the real life, if there’s such thing at all when you’re a drawing, they were separated by pages of sketchbooks, sometimes months or even years apart.

Do you draw your own features unitentionally? Do you reproduce them without meaning to?

It’s well-known that artists sub-consciously include their own features when making a portrait of someone else. And what if this someone else is a, well, triangle? Or a star?

The zine was cancelled after all, due to economical, pandemic and organizational reasons, but the idea is still lurking on the outskirts.
