Inspired by Paul Madonna’s tonal work in Everything is its own reward, I’m focusing again on strong design shapes based on combining complex details into strong shapes defined by three values: light, dark; medium.
My plan is to approach the streets of Paris with the same intention. Madonna’s exquisite draughtsmanship and detail are the reward after the power of his design captures my attention and I find myself exploring his San Francisco urban scenes. I want this quality and strength in my own work.
