‹1› A pile of different drawings
Sometimes I draw to remember, sometimes to think about something or someone, sometimes without a reason.
‹2› Drawing lectures
Sometimes I draw to explain my lectures and presentations. These few drawings were made for a lecture about popularisation of science: Chess figures define the rules of the game, they are the language and the game itself. What happens if someone alters their meaning? Is it dangerous to play with perceptions?
‹3› Illustrating a story
Sometimes someone asks me to make a diagram or illustration for a story/poem. Those are usually my favourite little projects, because I always learn something new. I drew many diagrams and schemes for friend’s scientific papers. These illustrations are for a friend’s blog – the travel club platform.
‹4› Drawing as an experiment
These drawings were created while writing a book with a friend on Google Drive. The only rule was that after you finish your piece (a sentence, a paragraph, a chapter) you cannot write anything else before the other person makes his/her contribution. The process never finished.
‹5› Drawing to document
This drawing was created during the organisation of Summer School of Architecture, as part of the final report, published by the Faculty of Architecture in Belgrade. The team was working in Kiki’s basement, turned into a fantastic workshop in which every inch could tell hundreds of stories…
‹6› Drawing to understand
Sometimes drawing is just there to make me think. These drawings were part of a process of making a competition entry. Technique and medium are not important, improvisation and experimentation are what matters.
‹7› Drawing to identify
Graphical identity is not just a mark in email’s signature, it is a way of communicating the most important piece of information – the essence of one’s work. If the process of building this nucleus is missing, the outcome is usually unsuccessful. The creation of logo for De Groene Vallei started one afternoon when me and Martijn were talking about his ideas; we were sketching together, while talking. Martijn is not an usual builder – his material is Willow tree, which he re-plants in a desirable shape and most importantly, he enables it to grow again. He is also a teacher, a gardener and a coach. Thus, starting from a hand-leaf and lines of the palm that resemble leaf venation patterns, we came up together with a logo for Martijn’s business.
