The Brownies Collection was inspired by the artwork ‘Overpopulation’ as it led to a temporary love triangle between me, the black color, and a shade between cream and brown.
I had been having creative block for a while as everything I was trying to draw wasn’t coming off. So I decided to open a new canvas, try a different color, and just let loose.
I loved the final result and I named it as I saw it. Overpopulation got me so ecstatic that I decided I wanted to make a series related to human beings while restricting myself to shades of only those colors. You can think of the collection as a glimpse into the life of the Brownies.
The next was Eccentricity. I tried to capture unconventionalism while accommodating some humor as well.
Third was Communication. I used different facial expressions and attitudes to convey facial expressions and non-verbal cues between The Brownies.
Next is my personal favorite, Vibrance. I was actually stuck for about 3 days with just the 3 head figures drawn as I pondered and pondered what kind of action I could embody on the figures to increase fascination.
The fifth and final one was Silhouettes, I needed a week to decide what I was going to draw. After its completion, I felt like I had stretched my creativity to its climax as far as the Brownies were concerned.
You never know, however, there just might be more to come from life with the Brownies.
