While digging around Kevin Dart’s new Tumblr to get more info on the Persol video he recently did, I found this new minor project he’s working on called Colouroid. It’s a simple idea where he illustrates an everyday something from his life, be it food or scenery. He’s only done seven so far, but the results are pretty great. I love that each of these are made up of pretty simple shapes. They’re kind of like high level sketches, but I doubt most of us could make our sketches look so great. Here’s his description of the project.
“I am starting a new exercise which I hope to do at least once a week. My plan is to take photos of little scenes whenever I am out around the city, and then bring them home to do small color study paintings. I’m hoping it will improve my sense of light and color. They will all be done in a square format to limit the number of things I have to worry about.”
