Sketch: Soul Sucker

What I like about drawing/sketching is that it allows me bolder (crazier?), more experimental moves that I can later transfer into three-dimensional form. I am particularly attracted to attempts to twist, contort, segment the human body into a physically impossible mangled mass. It is harder than it looks, especially in sculpture, taking liberties doesn’t give one a free hand. There are problems to be solved, related to inventing ways to connect the disjointed in a way that is aesthetically possible inside the impossibility of the reinvented connecting of body parts. All in all is too exciting, I can’t wait to see this sketch come to life, which may take a while, since I am working on a big project at the moment.
